Police start hunt for red killers

OUR CORRESPONDENT

Patna, Dec. 11: Vaishali district police has launched a massive combing operation after Maoists reportedly killed three persons and injured another in an attack last night.

Police believe that the Naxalites had primarily targeted the panchayat leader of Sukki, under Patepur block some 50 km from here. Adjoining police stations have also joined the search for the rebels in neighbouring villages.

Inspector-general (operation) S.K. Bhardwaj said a special force from Patna has been sent to the spot as there are possibilities of Naxalites targeting Singh’s house again. Mahua sub-divisional police officer Arvind K. Gupta conceded that since the headman was not at home during the attack, he survived, while indiscriminate firing killed three and injured another. The victims are Arun Kumar, Kapildev and Abhay Kant, all between 30 to 40 years.

The Naxalites, who put the headman’s jeep on fire, also asked the villagers to not be afraid, as they had come in “search of Singh”.

The villagers have reportedly said that Singh was targeted because he “dared” to challenge the Maoists and had countered some of their attacks. Police added that the headman had criminal cases pending against him and had engaged into property disputes with many people. Sukki is on the border of Vaishali and Muzaffarpur.
