One CPI(M) supporter killed by Trinamool

Bheramari (Birbhum), 21 November,2008: A Communist Party of India-Marxists (CPI-M) supporter was killed at Bheramari village in Birbhum district of West Bengal on Friday in a feud over a plot of a cultivable land.
The plot is said to be belonging to a Trinamool Congress (TMC) supporter, who was originally a CPI (M) supporter and recently joined the TMC. This led to a confrontation between CPI (M) and TMC supporters. Later, around 500-armed TMC supporters chased the CPI (M) activists, which triggered a violent clash between the two groups, in which one Mukhter Seikh (38), a CPI (M) supporter, was killed and several others were injured.

A large contingent of police force rushed to the spot to control the situation. But the tension is simmering in the village and local people are apprehending violent political backlash.
