Maoists’ West Bengal bandh today
Joint forces intensified patrol with some entering on motorcycles in interior areas in West Midnapore, Bankura and Purulia districts, the forested areas of which are collectively known as ''Junglemahal'', police said.
Maoist posters have appeared at Lodhasuli market, Lalgarh and Belpahari in West Midnapore district calling for isolating the "anti-people" Trinamool Congress, its "boycott" and "defeat".
In some posters, the Maoists decried the recent suspension of some Indian Reserve Battalion personnel for going on hunger-strike in their camps in Junglemahal against prolonged posting in hazardous areas and the alleged apathy of superiors.
The Delhi Police is likely to conduct more raids in connection with the IPL spot-fixing scandal. Teams of the Delhi Police's special cell have been sent to Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, and Kolkata to conduct searches and track the money trail in the IPL spot-fixing case.
