Kolkata: The CBI has requested the West Bengal CID to arrest those identified as culprits in the Jnaneswari Express attack, DGP Bhupinder Singh said.

"CBI has given requisition to the CID for the arrest of some people known to be involved in the Jnaneswari Express incident. The CID will try to make the arrests and hand them over to the CBI," he told reporters.

While declining to name those wanted by the CBI, the DGP said these people had been earlier identified by the CID also as those involved in the incident, but could not be arrested.

The CID has already arrested four persons in connection with the Jnaneswari Express attack.

In reply to a question, Singh said while investigating the case, CBI has also sought assistance from state police in matters of security, logistics and administration.

On reports of Maoists killing a deranged person in Jhargram on suspicion of his being a police informer, the DGP said the victim neither belonged to the state police nor to the CID.

Stating that anti-Maoist operations by joint forces were continuing in Junglemahal, the forested area of three adjoining districts, he said about 14 landmines have been recovered from Salboni, Madhupur and Lalgarh areas in the last three days.
