`Kishenji`s death news a ploy to dilute anti-Naxal ops`
Jamshedpur: Jharkhand police on Sunday said the
recent poster, recovered in West Bengal, alluding the death of
CPI (Maoist) leader Kishenji could be a ploy of the outfit to
dilute the operations against the rebels.
"I do not not rule out the possibility that it could be
a Maoist ploy to divert the ongoing operation," DIG (Kolhan)
Navin Kumar Singh told PTI.
Had he been died, it would have attracted reactions
within the outfit like it did when its top-ranking leader Azad
was killed in an encounter in Andhra Pradesh, Singh said.
The poster recovered from Lalgarh police station area on
Friday referred Kishenji as `Saheed` (Martyr).
"One of the Maoist politburo members, who was arrested
in West Singhbhum district recently, has not said anything on
Kishanji during interrogation," he said.
The DIG, who led anti-Naxal operation for five days in
Saranda forest of West Singhbhum in September where an
encounter took place, denied that Kishanji was present there.
A second-ranked Maoist leader Prasant Bose alias
Kishan`da was present and leading his men against the
securitymen, he said.
