Protesting against anti-Maoist operation in West Bengal's Lalgarh area by the Left Front government, Leftwing radicals' sympathisers on Tuesday marched to the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) office in New Delhi.

The Maoist supporters raised slogans against the CPI-M-led government in West Bengal. Police arrested some of the protestors.

Security was tightened at the CPI-M office at the AK Gopalan Bhavan after Maoist supporters informed the media that they would stage a march to the CPI-M office to mark their protest against the Lalgarh operation.

Around "400 security forces carrying rifles had put two-layer barricades before the AK Gopalan Bhavan in the early morning," said an eye witness.
