Trinamul men face plot charge

Midnapore, Aug. 7: Seven persons were arrested today from the tourist destination of Shankarpur near Digha for allegedly plotting to murder a CPM zilla parishad member.

All the men arrested were said to be Trinamul Congress activists. Police claimed three of them had confessed that they agreed to kill Swadesh Nayek for a fee of Rs 1.05 lakh offered by three trawler-owners at the fishing harbour. A rifle, choppers and ammunition were recovered from those arrested. Nayek owns a trawler and a hotel in Shankarpur. The police said an STD booth- owner heard two men mention Nayek’s name near his hotel on Monday and felt suspicious.

Jail for cadre

A court in Purulia today sentenced 12 CPM workers to prison terms between two years and life term for the murder of Babulal Mahato, a Jharkhand Mukti Morcha worker, in 1993. CPM supporter Ankur Bauri was also killed in the same clash but accused JMM supporters were acquitted for want of witnesses.
