Kolkata, Dec 12 (ANI): A decomposed body was today found in a sack at Parulbari village in Nandigram, as police dug up a grave in a paddy field.

He alleged that Harun was an active member of the BUPC and was abducted on November 7 by the CPI (M) cadres.
The CRPF personnel present in Nandigarm got a tip off from local people about the presence of bodies in the area.
On Tuesday they had found bullet covers in the adjoining areas.
The BUPC are alleging that their supporters were abducted and killed by the CPI (M) cadres during the violence that rocked this part of the State earlier this year.

To prevent tension and clashes security forces cordoned off the area since Tuesday. The Superintendent of Police of East Midnapore, S S Panda also visited the spot. (ANI)
