WB govt to send Kishenji's body to Andhra Pradesh

"The body is being sent," Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee told reporters when asked if Kishenji's body would be sent back to his home state.

Additional DGP S Purakayastha said that Kishenji's body would be brought here from the Jhargram police morgue for post mortem before it is sent to Andhra Pradesh.

Security measures would be taken for bringing the body to the metropolis, he said.

Secretariat sources said the post mortem would be done tomorrow.

Purakayastha said that the security of the chief minister and ten other vvips on the Maoist hit list had been stepped up.

Kishenji's body would be formally identified by his niece Deepa Rao who would go to Midnapore tonight along with Maoist sympathiser Varvara Rao, police sources said in Midnapore.

A forensic team would be present during the post mortem.

If required a DNA test would also be made, the sources added.
