Maoist bandh disrupts normal life in Jangalmahal
Jhargram: Life in the tribal Jangalmahal districts of West Bengal was paralysed Tuesday on the first day of a 48-hour bandh called by Maoist frontal organisation People`s Committee Against Police Atrocities.
No untoward incident was reported from anywhere in West Midnapore, Bankura and Purulia districts, that comprise Jangalmahal, with joint forces intensifying patrolling since
last night, officials said here.
The bandh has been called to protest the gunning down of PCPA leaders Sushen Mahato and Nibaran Singha at Sirsi village in West Midnapore district on Sunday. The bullet riddled bodies were found yesterday and the organisation has alleged that CPI-M goons were behind the crime.
The area wore a deserted look as vehicles kept off the road and commercial establishments downed shutters. Schools, colleges, banks, offices and post offices too were closed.
However, train movement on the Kharagpur-Tatanagar section of South Eastern Railway was normal, railway officials said.
