JHARGRAM: The Maoist-led People’s Committee against Police Atrocities ran amok in many places in Jangalmahal, with its militia squad killing four CPM cadres and setting several vehicles and three oil tankers on fire. They also set a sponge iron factory and a forest beat office ablaze.
On Thursday night, suspected Maoists dragged two CPM cadres — Anil Chalak and Dayal Chalak — from Bandhgora in Jhargram and hacked them to death. Police found their bodies on Friday morning.
A CPM leader escaped with injuries. Also on Thursday, Maoists beat a CPM supporter at Dherua in Kotwali.
