Jamui (Bihar): The 15 people abducted by
Maoists in Bihar`s Jamui district on Monday are yet to be
traced even as security-men intensified operations to rescue
them.
"There is still no trace of the kidnapped persons. The
security personnel have intensified the operations to free
them from the clutches of the Maoists," Jamui Superintendent
of Police RN Singh said.

Maoists kidnapped the 15 -- eight labourers, four
employees of a private construction company and three
villagers -- from Balthar Ghat.
Late on Monday night, over 50 ultras stormed into the
office of a private firm engaged by Bihar State Bridge
Corporation for construction of a bridge over Bharnar River
and took them away at gun point to a forest bordering Giridih
district of Jharkhand.
