Residents of Netai village near the Maoist hotbed of Lalgarh, where nine villagers were gunned down on January seven, are still to get over the shock with the worst hit being the students preparing for their exams.
Acting on Calcutta HC directions, WB government on Wednesday said it will pay compensation to the relatives of those killed and injured in January 7 Lalgarh firing in West Midnapore district and also constitute a medical board.
Taking a pro-active stand on the law and order situation in the state, West Bengal Governor MK Narayanan is likely to visit Netai village in the strife-torn
Lalgrah area, where seven unarmed villagers were killed recently.
The Calcutta High Court on Tuesday
directed the West Bengal government to explain its position on
the Lalgarh firing of January 7 while hearing a PIL seeking a
CBI probe into the incident that claimed seven lives.
The CPI(M) on Friday held a
rally at Lalgarh in West Midnapore district, which the party
"recaptured" from the Maoists a few months ago, in a show of
strength, while directing its attack on the Trinamool
Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee`s
speech in Maoist-dominated Lalgarh which created a political
storm was today defended by the government, which said
whatever she has spoken was not against the UPA`s policy.
