Three CPM supporters were kidnapped by tribal agitators from Goaltore area in restive West Midnapore district this morning, said police.
Police said that trio abducted persons were local committee members of the CPM and were kidnapped in retaliation of the kidnapping of a PCPA supporter allegedly by Marxist yesterday.
They said that another local committee member Dilip Mahato (40) was abducted last night from his home at Manidaha village in the area and gunned down by Maoists. Also, his home was burnt down.
In the meantime, the indefinite bandh call given by the People’s Committee Against Police Atrocities (PCPA) from October 27 was withdrawn yesterday.
PCPA supporters had on Tuesday seized the Bhubaneswar-Delhi Rajdhani Express at Banstala in the district but it was freed by security forces after a five-hour hostage drama. All passengers were safe.
