Nandigram: Two more CPI(M) cadres were
on Friday arrested by CID in connection with the disappearance of
six agitators from a rally on November 10, 2007 at Nandigram
in East Midnapore district.

Mrinmay Das and Gurupada Das were arrested from their
residence at Gokulnagar area of Nandigram, CID sources said.

Earlier several CPI(M) cadres were arrested by the CID
in this connection.

CID swung into action after Calcutta High Court had
directed the investigation agency in September this year to
trace the missing persons following a habeas corpus petition
by six women alleging that police had failed to trace their
husbands.

All the six men went missing from a rally organised by
the Trinamool Congress led Bhoomi Uchchhed Pratirodh Committee
during the "recapture" of Nandigram by CPI(M) workers at the
height of Nandigram agitation.
