Midnapore: In continuing attacks on
CPI-M activists, suspected Maoists today shot dead a school
employee in Jhargram in West Midnapore district, two days
after they killed a school clerk at Silda in the same
Srikanta Mondol, an employee of the Sebayatan Girl`s
High School at Radhanagar village in Jhargram, and his parents
who accompanied him were shot at in front of the school gate,
Jhargram`s SP Pravin Tripathi said.
All three were taken to the Jhargram Sub-Divisional
Hospital. While Srikanta was declared brought dead, his father
Felu Mondol and mother were being treated for injuries.
Tripathy said the manner of the killing pointed to a
Srikanta, a resident of Radhanagar village, was
responsible for building up an anti-Maoist resistance movement
in the area which has kept the ultras at bay.
After the news of Srikanta`s killing reached the
village, residents came out in droves and set up a road
blockade and broke windscreens of passing vehicles.
Last Monday, the suspected ultras in their calculated
move to eliminate CPI-M workers engaged in building a
resistance movement killed Ananta Mukherjee, a CPI-M zonal
committee member and clerk of the Silda High School.
