Kolkata, Dec 7 (UNI) Trinamool Congress members staged a noisy walkout from the West Bengal Assembly today protesting the Speaker's refusal to allow a discussion on unearthing of burnt bones from Khejuri.

Though Speaker Hasim Abdul Halim gave permission for reading out the adjournment motion from Mr Saugato Roy, it did not satisfy the Trinamool MLAs who demanded a thorough discussion on the matter of ''urgent public importance'' and walked out from the House.

They also raised slogans against Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee and demanded his immediate resignation for the violence in Nandigram.

Later, Opposition leader Partha Chatterjee told newspersons that there were reports of more graves at the adjoining areas, observing that more bodies could be recovered from such spots.

''Yesterday's discovery of charred bones from Khejuri proved that a large number of people were killed in the recent violence in Nandigram and many bodies were hidden in different places by the CPI(M) cadres,'' Mr Chatterjee observed.

Charred bones were recovered from five graves at Bamunchak in Khejuri yesterday in the presence of Chief Judicial Magistrate, Contai, CRPF and local police.

The discovery of the burnt bones suggested that the bodies were first burnt and then buried.
