Maoists kill three in Bengal

Police said a group of about 10 ultras riding in three motorcycles fired from close range at four persons at a tea stall in Maturapur village under Salboni division.

While three of them died on the spot, another sustained injuries in his left hand and was rushed to Midnapore Medical College and Hospital in the  district.

The CPM claimed the victims as their supporters. The raiders also detonated a mine before escaping apparently to confuse and divert the police. The attack has sparked off fresh claims and counter claims on the existence of armed camps of CPM in the area.
