Patna: Bihar government today transferred Lakhisarai Superintendent of Police Ashok Kumar Singh and Deputy Superintendent of Police Ramadhar Singh in the wake of the Maoist killing of seven policemen in Sital Korasi hills in the district.

The new SP and DSP have been asked to take charge today itself, officials said.

The government has stepped up anti-Maoist operation in the district and neighbouring Jamui hours before the expiry of the deadline to release eight Maoists as the police claimed to have got vital clues about the whereabouts of the four kidnapped policemen.

The Maoists yesterday issued an ultimatum to Bihar government to release eight of their jailed commanders by today, failing which they would kill four securitymen abducted by them from the Lakhisarai district.

Ranjit Mishra, the city SP of Darbhanga, would replace Ashok Kumar Singh as new SP of Lakhisarai and Deputy Superintendent of Police (Railways) Rajbansh Singh would replace Lakhisarai DSP Ramadhar Singh.

Outgoing SP Singh would be commandant of BMP-four in Patna, they added.
