Bengal Govt suspects CPI(M)'s involvement in Silda massacre

Kolkata, May 24: After the downfall of the Left Party in Bengal, now its time for the defeated team to suffer the controversies raised against it. The Communist Party of India- Marxist (CPI-M) now, is being suspected of its involvement in the Silda attack that took place on February 15, 2010.

The Silda attack, had left 24 paramilitary personnel dead of the Eastern Frontier Rifles. The State Director General of Police Naparajit Mukerjee on Sunday, May 22 ordered a probe into the Silda massacre after an INSAS (Indian Small Arms System) rifle looted from the Silda EFR camp was found near a CPI(M) office at Enayatpur. That's not the end of it, as an AK-56 rifle, nine other rifles, 22 pipe guns and 36 rounds of ammunition were recovered from a field, some 1.5 km away from CPI-M's Enayetpur party office.

"So far our suspicion was on the Maoists. But, now it seems CPI-M workers may have been involved," Mukherjee said. Hence, the State investigative team highlights a new angle of CPI-M's involvement in the attack though, the CID had earlier submitted chargesheets against 23 Maoist ultras, including Kishenji, the head of the insurgents.
