Four posters from suspected Maoists threatening local SFI leader and a college professor were today found from the Burdwan University, sparking off tension in the campus, police said.
The posters were spotted on the walls of canteens of humanities and law department.
The posters said SFI's district secretary Arindam Chakraborty and professor Jayanto Saha's fate will be decided in the people's court.
Police, however, brushed off the incident by saying the ultras are not active in the area and the incident seems to be a handiwork of the local Trinamool Congress leaders.
SFI leader Chakraborty said, "We are not giving any importance to this. Trinamool Congress leaders have done this to spread fear among the students".
Later in the day, when Kartick Khormani, president of Chatra Parishad, the student wing of Trinamool Congress, tried to enter the university campus, he was allegedly stopped at
the entry gate.
In an ensuing scuffle between the leaders of the two student wings, Chakraborty was injured.
With head injuries the SFI leader has been admitted to Burdwan Medical College and Hospital.
SFI has called for a strike in the varsity tomorrow.
