• The last paragraph of a report “Tribal stir: parts of West Bengal still inaccessible” was “The State committee of the CPI (M) has, in two statements made so far this week, affirmed its support to the protestors as have both the Trinamool Congress and Congress leadership. The Maoists have also demanded a public apology from the Chief Minister for the alleged police excesses on the local people in parts of the Jhargram sub-division of Paschim Medinipur district.” The CPI (M) is the accepted abbreviation for the Communist Party of India (Marxist) and not the Communist Party of India (Maoist). It was an editing error.
