Patna: Top Bihar Police officials here have sought a report from Khagaria Superintendent of Police to identify a self-proclaimed Maoist leader, who had visited the house of Sub-Inspector Abhay Yadav, one of the policemen held captive by the ultras recently.

"Yes, a report has been sought from the SP (Khagaria), asking him to verify the identity of the alleged Naxalite leader who visited the SI's house and assured his family members of his early return," Additional Director-General of Police P K Thakur said.

A local TV channel had on September 5 shown a Maoist leader visiting the Khagaria house of Abhay Yadav and identified himself as 'Kishanji'.

"We are greatly influenced by your emotional outburst that the situation would compel his sons to take to guns and become Naxalites if your husband is not released immediately. We later decided to let him off," the Maoist reportedly told Rajni, the SI's wife, and accepted a rakhi from her.

Thakur said, "We are sure we will be able to find out about the man."

The Maoists had killed seven policemen in an encounter in Kajra forests of Lakhisarai district on August 29 and kidnapped four policemen.

They later killed Lucas Tete, a BMP ASI. The ultras had unconditionally released the remaining three policemen, including Abhay Yadav, after holding them captive for nine days.
