Maoists set ablaze three trucks in Jhargram
Jhargram: The helper of a truck
sustained burn injuries when suspected Maoists set three
trucks on fire on NH-6 at Jhargram in West Midnapore district
for allegedly violating "Bharat Bandh" called by them.
The police said Maoist cadre set ablaze two iron
ore-laden trucks coming from Orissa at Purnapani. They also
set on fire a truck going from Kolkata at Guptamani on the
same highway, the police said.
The helper of a truck - Ajay Kumar Giri - received
burn injury and was admitted to a nearby government hospital.
Maoists have called "Bharat Bandh" today to protest
rise in the prices of essential commodities.
