Maoists call Jharkhand bandh today

Posted by Indian Vanguard on October 6, 2007

Jamshedpur, Oct. 6 (PTI): Security was stepped in several districts of Jharkhand following today’s bandh call by CPI (Maoists) to protest against alleged anti-people policies of the state government.

Several trains passing through Barkakhana-Garwah Road in Palamu were either cancelled or diverted in view of the bandh, railway sources said.

The West Singhbhum District Superintendent of Police, Sudhir Kumar Jha, said a massive combing operation was on to check infiltration of extremists as special focus was being given to guard railway tracks and road.

The district administration also deployed security personnel to keep vigil on vital installations, he said.

In East Singhbhum, adequate police force as well as para-military personnel were deployed in the naxal-stronghold areas the district, a senior police officer said.

While patrolling have been stepped-up, police Thursday launched a massive combing operation in Ghorabandha and Dumaria to flush out the ultras.

Security was also tightened in Naxal-stronghold pockets of Latehar, Garwah districts to foil any violence, police sources said.

The posters came up in various places including Maoist-affected Ghatsila sub-division’s Dumaria, Ghorabandha, Chakulia, Hadian and Bada Botla villages.

The Maoists issued the call in protest against alleged corruption, improper implementation of central-funded National Rural Employment Guarantee Act and similar issues.
