Jamui: All seven labourers kidnapped
from Pakari village in the district on December 9 have been
released by Maoists.

The labourers were set free at a hillock near Rajaun
Bishanpur village late Sunday night, Superintendent of Police R
N Singh said on Monday.

The labourers were given a medical check-up in a hospital
before they returned home, he said.

Over 50 heavily-armed guerrillas on December 9 had
kidnapped the labourers working for a private construction
firm from two different sites in Jamui district.

The labourers were kidnapped after the construction firm
failed to meet their demands for money, sources said.
