Posters increase speculation over Kishenji`s death
Kolkata: Posters alluding to `martyrdom`
of Maoist leader Kishenji were recovered by security forces
here, intensifying speculation over the death of the rebel
leader, who has not appeared publicly for past eight months,
police said on Friday.
One of the three posters, undersigned by an unknown
organisation -`Tribal Platoon, CPI(Maoists)` and recovered
from a place between Punnapani and Lakshanpur by the joint
forces during routine patrolling, said, "We will not allow
anybody to use martyr Kishenji for serving his interest."
Terming Mansaram (Bikas) as a traitor, another poster
said that he had forgotten his own community and the people
would punish him while the third poster said, "We won`t allow
Marshall to be insulted," the police said.
Confirming the existence of the posters, West
Midnapore Superintendent of Police Monoj Kumar Verma said they
did not significantly prove that Kishenji was dead, "but it is
also true that from April onwards we have no information about
this Maoist leader."
"In the intervening eight months, the media has
received two video recordings, but after checking the details
we became sure that one of the video recording was shot a long
time ago and in another video the person posing as Kishenji is
not original," Verma said.
There was strong rumour after the March 26 encounter
with the joint forces at Hatiloth forest in West Midnapore
that Kishenji was either seriously injured or dead, but the
administration has so far refrained from making any comment.
Though some purported recorded statements of Kishenji
were sent to the media, the leader has not made any public
