Three women activists of the Bhumi Ucched Pratirodh Commitee on Tuesday claimed they were beaten up and stripped by Communist Party of India-Marxist cadres in Nandigram [Images] for refusing to support them in the ensuing panchayat polls.
Malati Das, Krishna Das and Tulsi Das of Simulkundu village claimed that they have filed a complaint but the Nandigram police refused to comment.
When contacted, superintendent of police of East Midnapore, S Panda, said he had no information on the matter and that only the Nandigram police station could comment on it.
The women alleged that around 40-50 CPM cadres, led by Mamata Das, came to their houses on Monday and surrounded them.
