CPI(Maoists) extend deadline by 24-hours for BDO release
Jamshedpur: The CPI(Maoists) on Tuesday extended
its deadline to the Jharkhand government by 24-hours for
fulfilment of demands to set free the abducted block
development officer (BDO) of Dalbhumgarh.
The spokesman of Bengal-Jharkhand-Orissa Border Regional
Committee of CPI(Maoists) Rakeshji said, "we assure the
security and safety of Prashant Kumar Layek, the BDO only for
next 24-hours till 6 pm tomorrow and the Jharkhand government
should give in writing regarding fulfilment of our demands
including unconditional release of 14 people."
A decision in this regard was taken at a Jan Adalat
following the expiry of the deadline at 6.00 pm, Rakesh Ji
said over phone from an undisclosed location.
The Jharkhand Cabinet should take a decision about our
demands, he said while rejecting the police assurance to
re-investigate the cases against the arrested Maoists.
"We are not ready to pay heed to the police assurance as
the issues have to be solved politically," he claimed.
Rakeshiji demanded that the Government should withdraw
forces from Ghorabandha police station area and stop search
operation, release all the 14 arrested by police, pay Rs 10
lakh compensation to the family members of Sanjiv alias Somen
Munda, who was allegedly killed by the Nagrik Suraksha Samity
(NSS)-Police nexus at Jiyan on Sunday last.
Layek was abducted from his office chamber at Dalbhumgarh
in East Singhbhum district on Saturday.
