More than one hundred suspected Maoists on Thursday torched the houses of two CPI(M) leaders at Madhupur under Shalboni police station in West Midnapore district, police said.

"The armed Maoists raided the village and forced many villagers to walk along with them in a procession before attacking the houses of the CPI(M) leaders Niranjan Debsinha and Kamal Debsinha," police said.

The rebels first ransacked the houses and then set them on fire, they said adding the buildings were vacant as the residents have left the place sensing trouble.
