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
