NANDIGRAM, March 17. — Barely an hour before the NDA delegation visited Sonachura village, three supporters of the Bhumi Uchhed Protirodh Committee were abducted allegedly by CPI(M) - backed goons from the Khejuri side of Bhangabhera bridge in Nandigram.

The abducted villagers were identified as Gourhari Barik, Purna Chandra Pal and Buddha Mirdha, all from Dinabandhupur village in Nandigram. According to reports, around 11 a.m., the protesters of anti-land grab movement organised a rally towards Bhangabhera via Sonachura village.

Eyewitness accounts said three men were preceding the rally at a distance of about 500 metres to check whether armed goons, allegedly backed by the CPI-M were hiding anywhere to launch an attack on the protesters. While looking for armed men, Barik, Pal and Mirdha went across the Bhangabhera Bridge. Suddenly, armed goons surfaced from bushes and allegedly whisked them away into a car and fled towards Khejuri. Since then, there is no trace of the trio. The Statesman
