Maoists Blast Landmine in Lalgarh

A day ahead of Union Home Minister P Chidambaram’s visit, suspected Maoists triggered a landmine blast in Lalgarh area of West Midnapore district of West Bengal, reported IANS citing police.

According to report, a four-feet crater was created on the road due to the blast which occurred in Bamal village, a few km from Lalgarh.

“Raids are on in the area. They (the Maoists) may have triggered the blast,” West Bengal police chief Bhupinder Singh was quoted as saying.

In the explosion, three-four CRPF jawans were injured as per reports of some TV channels but Bhupinder Singh denied having received any such information, said report.

It may be mentioned that Chidambaram is slated to visit the Lalgarh area on Sunday to review the operation being conducted by the joint forces comprising central paramilitary troopers and state armed police since last June to flush out the left wing extremists from the area.
