Midnapore (West Bengal), Nov 26: Maoist ideologue P. Varavara Rao on Saturday (today) said that maoist Central Committee leader Mallojula Koteswara Rao alias Kishenji was killed in a 'staged encounter' and held West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee responsible for the death.

Varavara Rao futher said that there is not a single part of his body without injury. He clamed that CRPF kept him in custody for 24 hours and tortured him before killing.

"Mamata (Banerjee) has killed Kishenji who had asked her for peace," Rao told reporters.

Earlier, on Friday (Nov 25), Rao had claimed that Kishenji was killed in a 'fake encounter' after being tortured in custody.

Deepa, who identified that it was the body of her uncle said, "I last saw him in 1985. The body resembles that of my father and brother. But it is in horrible condition. They have really tortured him."

The number 3 man in Maoist hierarchy, Koteshwar Rao alias Kishenji was killed in an encounter by the joint forces operating in Borishol forest in West Midnapore district of West Bengal bordering Jharkhand on Nov 24. However, search for another top leader, Suchitra Mahato is still on. The search operation was launched on Nov 23 following an intelligence report that Kishenji and others were hiding in Purulia district of West Bengal.

Meanwhile, Maoists have called for a two-day statewide bandh from Nov 26 protesting against 'fake encounter' and demanded an independent probe into the circumstances leading to the death of their top leader Kishenji in West Midnapore district.
