Jharkhand Maoists torch 35 vehicles in 150 days; contractors panic
Ranchi: Maoists have torched 35 vehicles in the past five months in
Jharkhand, hampering the state government’s efforts to woo investors and
develop infrastructure. The violent attacks by the Maoist guerrillas
have created panic among the contractors involved in construction work.
The state police with the help of paramilitary forces have destroyed
many bunkers and recovered more than 2,000 landmines planted by the
Maoists in different parts of the state. Police claim to have hit the
backbone of the Maoist guerrillas in last one year, but the guerrillas
make their presence felt by demanding levy and torching vehicles.
