Patna: Maoist guerrillas in Bihar planned to replicate Jehanabad jailbreak in Jamui district last month to free their 51 cadres lodged in the jail, police said on Thursday.

Baro Koda, a Maoist suspected of killing Lucas Tete -- one of the four Bihar policemen abducted by the rebels last month -- and arrested last week, told police during interrogation that Maoists decided to replicate Jehanabad jailbreak by raiding Jamui jail to free their cadres.

Koda told police that about 150 heavily armed Maoists and hundreds of men from the People's Guerilla Liberation Army assembled in forest area in Lakhisarai and were ready for the attack on Jamui jail.

Jehanabad jailbreak hit headlines when around 300 inmates, including 150 Maoist rebels, escaped in 2005 after Maoists stormed the jail.
