‘No armed camps found in Lalgarh'

Special Correspondent

KOLKATA: The Central police forces deployed in the Maoist-affected areas in Lalgarh in Paschim Medinipur district have so far not found any camp of armed groups but only ones sheltering those who might have left their homes in the wake of violence in the region.

Dismissing as “baseless” allegations of the existence of camps of armed groups in the region, Shankarlal Sengupta, Commandant of the 50 {+t} {+h} battalion of the CRPF, said in the Salbani area of the district on Saturday: “It is not possible that such camps exist under our very noses”.

The Trinamool Congress has been alleging the existence of a number of camps in the region where “harmads” (hired armed goons) of the CPI(M) are housed.

The Central forces have been enquiring in a phased manner into the alleged existence of armed camps in the region following a directive from the Calcutta High Court in the wake of the violence in Netai in the Lalgarh area in which nine persons were killed on January 7.

“We found refugees sheltered in some camps but there were no weapons”, Mr. Sengupta said.
