Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Monday shouted at villagers protesting a gang-rape and murder, and branded the accused and the protestors as "CPI-M people".

Banerjee yelled at the protestors when women surrounded her and shouted slogans about the lack of security while she was visiting the gang-rape victim's family Monday at Kamduni village, 25 km from here, 10 days after the incident.

"Stop this CPI-M (Communist Party of India-Marxist) politics. I know you all are their people and even those who have been arrested for the gang-rape are all CPI-M people. These goons enjoy the support of the CPI-M," said an angry Banerjee. She assured them that the administration would seek the death penalty for the culprits.

Banerjee, who rode pillion on a motorbike to meet the family, said the case would be fast-tracked and justice meted out within a month. "The chargesheet has been prepared and will be submitted (to the court) within seven days. We will ensure that the rapists are given the death penalty," added Banerjee.
