Kolkata: The West Bengal government on Saturday said it did not have any information regarding Intelligence
Branch inspector Partha Biswas and his friend Soumyajit Basu,
abducted by suspected Maoists on October 22 from Purulia
district.

"The government is yet to receive any information
on the IB inspector and his teacher friend," Chief Secretary
Samar Ghosh said here today.

Home Secretary GD Gautama had said yesterday that the
two were possibly alive with both being taken to Jharkhand.

Maoist leaders Kisenji and Bikram have, however,
denied any involvement of Naxals in the incident.
