Maoist goes missing from court premises in Jharkhand
Hazaribagh: A Maoist, who was on bail, went "missing" from the premises of Hazaribagh District and Session Court here, police said on Friday.
Sohan Bhuiyan, who came to the court yesterday with his son following summons, went missing during the period when his son went to fetch water, Superintendent of Police Manoj Kaushik said here.
While his son lodged a complaint with the police alleging his father had been kidnapped from the court premises, the SP said it was a case of missing and ruled out abduction by any rebel group.
Bhuiyan was the "sub-zonal commander" with the erstwhile Maoist Communist Centre (MCC) and accused of being involved in the killing of 19 members of the Gram Suraksha Samiti on April 19, 2001 at Beltu in Hazaribagh district.
Along with the People`s War, the MCC later formed the CPI (Maoist), which is now a banned outfit.
Bhuiyan was arrested in 2005 and remained in jail since then before getting bail five weeks ago. He returned to his village in the district.
The SP said the police have launched a drive to locate him and claimed his disappearance would have no impact in the spurt of Naxal violence.
