Rourkela: The supervisor of a private
construction company was kidnapped allegedly by armed Maoists
from Bhalulata under Bisra police station area, about 40 km
from here today, police said.
Pankaj Rout was supervising road construction at a
site when four ultras in two motor-cycles abducted him at gun
point, they said.
The rebels were suspected to have taken Rout into
adjoining Jharkhand, police said adding combing operation has
been launched in the area.
The Maoists were believed to have demanded a hefty
money from the construction company recently and the abduction
was apparently due to non-payment of the levy, police added.
