Maoists claim responsibility for killing five CPI(M) men

Maoist state committee member and party spokesperson Akash told PTI over telephone from an undisclosed destination that they had repeatedly asked CPI(M) "goons" to leave arms and lead a normal life, but the latter did not pay any heed to it.

"If they don't do it during a war-like situation, they will be killed," he warned.
Akash claimed that a CPI(M) camp existed at Patina village in Nayagram, close to Orissa border "just under the nose of the joint forces camp" from where CPI-M cadres allegedly operated and tortured nearby villagers.

Armed Maoists descended on Nachupatina village's Dompara area on Sunday night and exploded bombs before firing in the air to terrorise villagers, the police said.

One group went to the house of CPI(M) supporter Amrit Aagyuan, broke open the door and forcibly took him way. Amrit's mother was injured when she tried to stop the Maoists.
Another group of Maoists went to the house of Rohin Aagyun, Samaresh Aagyuan, Swapan Aagyuan and Prasanta Aagyuan, all belonging to one family, and forcibly took them outside.
They first beat the five persons, then shot them dead leaving behind some Maoist posters, the police said.

CPI(M) sources claimed the deceased as their party supporters.
