Tamluk: The driver of an ambulance used to dump bodies of victims of firing allegedly by CPI(M) cadre during recapture of Nandigram in 2007 has been arrested at Khejuri in East Midnapore district, CID officials said Friday.

The CID seized the ambulance and arrested its driver Shaktipada Dalapati yesterday, the officials said.

Dalapati had used the ambulance to transport seven bodies of victims killed in firing allegedly by Marxist cadre during the recapture of Nandigram in East Midnapore district from the Trinamool Congress-backed agitators in November 2007.

He had transported the bodies from a hospital in the former Marxist bastion of Khejuri, adjoining Nandigram, for dumping in the river, the officials said.

Nine persons had gone missing after the firing, with the bodies of two dug out.

The ambulance belonged to an NGO run by a local CPI-M worker, the police said.

Dalapati was sent to CID custody for four days after he was produced in a court in Haldia.
