Wind up CRPF camp: tribals

Special Correspondent

KOLKATA: The tribal agitation against alleged police excesses in West Bengal’s Paschim Medinipur district took a new turn on Wednesday when protesters, some carrying bows and arrows, gathered outside a Central Reserve Police Force camp at Ramgarh and demanded that it be wound up within 24 hours.

Roads were dug up and roadblocks put up in fresh areas, further isolating parts of the district, according to reports here.

The agitation, which started more than a fortnight ago in the Lalgarh area, would continue, said leaders of a “people’s committee” spearheading the protest. They warned that the local villagers would “boycott” the police and the administration.

Their demands include a public apology by the local police administration for the “excesses” committed on villagers in Lalgarh during raids to apprehend those responsible for the November 2 IED explosion that narrowly missed Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee’s convoy.
