Kolkata: West Bengal Governor M K Narayanan
today visited Netai village near Lalgarh in West Midnapore
district, where nine people were killed in firing from an
alleged CPI-M armed camp on January seven, to assess the
situation.

Narayanan went to the house from where shots were fired
and talked to the relatives of some of those killed.

The Governor had summoned State Chief Secretary Samar
Ghosh a few days back to discuss the law and order situation
in the state post-Netai firing.

On the day of the firing, the Governor had asked the
state government to do whatever was needed to stop the slide
in the law and order situation before it reached a `point of
no return`.

Narayanan left for Lalgarh on way to Jhalda in adjoining
Purulia district where seven Forward Bloc activists were
gunned down in a Maoist attack on January 16.
