CPIML Leader Attacked in Siwan by BJP backed Feudal Forces

Since the BJP grabbed power in Bihar, the feudal forces have unleashed a reign of terror over dalits and poor in the state. On 10 February, a dominant feudal criminal, Dhan Kumar Singh burnt down a stack of straw of Ramesh Ram because he refused to sell it at prices much less than market rates. This happened in Savan Vigrah village of Daraunda block in Siwan district.

Dhankumar Singh then brutally assaulted Ramesh and his family members, including women members. Next day, CPIML leader Jaishankar Pandit and Ramayan Yadav went to meet Ramesh and inquired into the incident. During this, Dhankumar Singh reached the spot and fired indiscriminately.

Comrade Jaishankar Pandit was shot in the leg. Sita Devi, sister of Ramesh Ram and her son Manu Kumar Ram were also injured in the firing. Manu was shot in the stomach. Ramesh Ram’s wife, two daughters and mother were badly beaten up and harassed by the attackers. All the injured are admitted to PMCH in Patna and undergoing treatment.

CPIML General Secretary Dipankar Bhattacharya and Politburo member Dhirendra Jha visited Comrade Jaishankar and other injured at PMCH on February 12 to take stock of the situation. The injured comrades were steadfast and said that the attack will not deter people's resistance to BJP backed feudal forces.

The CPIML has urged the state authorities to take action and ensure the arrest of all attackers immediately.
