Patna: Security forces have launched a
massive combing operation in the jungles of Bihar`s Lakhisarai
district to trace the four policemen kidnapped by Maoists.

To review the anti-Naxal operations in the state, CRPF
chief Vikram Srivastava will hold a meeting with Bihar Police
chief Neelmani here Tuesday.

Sources said troops of CRPF, special counter-Naxal
force SAF and state police have launched extensive search
operations in the area around the Kajra hills of the district
where the encounter took place on Sunday.

Maoists have issued an ultimatum to the Bihar
government to release eight of their jailed colleagues by
tomorrow failing which they would kill all the four
securitymen kidnapped by them.

Sources said security forces in Jharkhand have also
been alerted as the district is close to the inter-state
border and the Naxals could flee to the neighbouring state.
