Trinamool leaders on KLO ‘hit-list’: Report | The Indian Express

Related. Banned outfit Kamtapuri Liberation Organisation (KLO), accused in the Jalpaiguri blast in which people were killed n December last year, is learnt to have prepared a ‘hit-list’ of at least 20 senior Trinamool leaders, including three cabinet ministers from North Bengal. According to a police report submitted to the state government, the outfit has issued threats to tourism minister from Malda Krishnendu Narayan Choudhury. “I have heard they have made some statements claiming they would not take much time to kill me or the Superintendent of Police. We get threats from several people, but it does not mean we will hide in our houses. Our priority is the safety of people,” said Choudhury. Sources said the outfit has also planned an attack in North Bengal during a bandh called by them in five districts on January 17 in protest against the arrest of its cadres. Several small groups of KLO cadres have reportedly been sent to Malda, Cooch Behar and Jalpaiguri districts. They are present in several interior villages and are armed with sophisticated weapons, the report further states. Meanwhile, police have received more than dozen extortion complaints against KLO men from local businessmen, government employees and school teachers. 2 KLO members held. Kolkata: Two days ahead of the bandh called by KLO, two leaders of the outfit were arrested Wednesday in Malda. Police sources said Sanjay Burman and Uttam Mondal, who hold important positions in the outfit, are close aides of senior KLO leader Malkhan Singh. “The two leaders were produced before the court today. We will get their remand soon. We have also come to know that the two have close links with Malkhan Singh,” said Kalyan Mukherjee, SP, Malda.
