The CPI(M) on Tuesday  accused Trinamool Congress workers of killing four of its activists in West Bengal, saying it was a "murderous assault" by "anti-social and criminal elements" belonging to the main opposition party in the state. 

"In a dastardly incident, anti-social and criminal elements of the TC launched a murderous assault on a peaceful and unarmed group of CPI(M) supporters who were returning after filing nomination papers for elections to the managing committee of a local madrasa," the party Politburo said in a statement in New Delhi. Four persons were killed on the spot in the incident which occurred at Narayanpur in South 24 Parganas district.

"The gruesome nature of the killings is revealed by the fact that two of them were killed after being fired with the revolver placed inside their mouths. Seven other CPI(M) activists were grievously injured in the attack and are in critical condition fighting for their lives," it said. 

The incident showed the extent of violence being unleashed against CPI(M) and the Left, while TC chief Mamata Banerjee "campaigns" that there law and order had failed, the statement said. 

Noting that Left parties had presented a memorandum to the Prime Minister listing the names of over 150 CPI(M) activists being killed by TC and Maoists since the last Lok Sabha polls, it said hardly a day passed in West Midnapur when CPI(M) activists were "not killed by Maoist marauders". In the rest of the state, it is the Trinamool which carries on the campaign of violence". PTI
