Lalgarh : PCPA calls for indefinite road blockade

Jhargram (WB), Apr 22 (PTI) Maoist-backed PCPA today called for a road blockade in West Midnapore, Bankura and Purulia, a day after it announced an indefinite bandh in these tribal-dominated districts.

The road blockade would continue till the Centre and the state government call off the anti-Maoist operations in the three districts, People's Committee against Police Atrocity (PCPA) leader Manoj Mahato said.

Mahato alleged that the security forces were harassing the locals in these districts during anti-Maoist operations.
