AGARTALA, May 4 - Police seized sharp edged weapons from a local committee office of CPI(M) during a raid at Champaknagar in West Tripura district, about 22 km from here.

Acting on a tip-off, police raided the CPI(M) office in Jirania sub-division and seized two machetes and a khukri (Nepalese knife) among others, officiating Superintendent of Police (Police Control) Harkumar Debbarma said.

Nobody was arrested during the raid, the SP said.

Reacting to the incident, BJP spokesperson Mrinal Kanti Deb alleged that the arms recovery once again proved that large number of arms was stored for post-election violence by CPI(M).

�They stored these weapons in CPI(M) party offices before the elections to terrorise our supporters. This is a commendable work by the State police and a welcome move for safety and security of common people,� Deb told reporters.

CPI(M) State secretary Bijan Dhar denied his party�s role in storing weapons and claimed that most offices of the party were not in their possession.

�Most of our party offices have been grabbed by BJP hoodlums and put under lock and key. They have planted these weapons,� Dhar said. � PTI
