Last Updated: Friday, September 3, 2010 - 19:06

New Delhi: The Bihar government has sought
4,000 additional paramilitary personnel from the Centre to
deal with the sudden spurt in Naxal violence in the state.

The request for 40 companies (each company having around
100 personnel) is being examined by the Home Ministry and a
decision will be taken soon, official sources said today.
Around 2,400 paramilitary personnel are already in Bihar
assisting the state police in dealing with the Maoists.

Sources said a comprehensive plan is being worked out to
launch a joint operation along the Bihar-Jharkhand border to
flush out militants hiding there.

The bullet-riddled body of kidnapped Bihar Military Police
havildar Lucas Tete was today recovered from Lakhisarai as the
Maoist deadline for killing three remaining hostages expired.
The Maoists had kidnapped sub-inspectors Rupesh Kumar
and Abhay Prasad Yadav, BMP havildar Ehtesham Khan and Tete
five days ago after an encounter in Lakhisarai district.

Six Bihar Military Police personnel, officer-in-charge
of Kawaiya police outpost Bhulan Yadav and a policeman were
killed in the gunfight.
