Kolkata: Parts of human skeletons, including
crushed skulls and bones, were on Saturday found inside a bushy area
at a village in strife-torn Maoist strongholds of Lalgarh in
West Midnapore district.

Although police and district authority were tight-lipped
about the incident, villagers said that the skeletal remains
were found along the bushy area at Dangbahara village near
Kansai river.

Villagers had already informed the police, according to
reports.

Lalgarh, a hotbed of armed Maoist activities for the last
two years, witnessed large-scale violence that led to many
casualties.

Meanwhile, police said that four persons were injured,
two of them seriously, when armed miscreants today raided a
relief camp of homeless Trinamool Congress activists at
Goaltore in the district.

The seriously injured were rushed to a hospital.
Trinamool sources alleged that the raiders belonged to
CPI-M who ransacked the camp and seriously assaulted the
inmates.

After the attack, the camp that housed about 150 homeless
people was left deserted.
