Police considering case of Jnaneswari train mishap suspect

The administration could consider the rehabilitation package announced by the state government for a surrendered Maoist, suspected to be involved in the May 28 Jnaneswari train mishap, if he applies for it.



Kolkata: The administration could consider the rehabilitation package announced by the state government for a surrendered Maoist, suspected to be involved in the May 28 Jnaneswari train mishap, if he applies for it.

"We will inform Giri about the rehabilitation package.
If he agrees we will certainly recommend his case to the state
government for rehabilitation," IG (Western Range) Zulfikar
Hasan told reporters today.

Jiten Giri, against whom several cases including
murder, sedition, arson, possession of illegal arms, loot and
conspiracy were pending, had surrendered in a court on July
26.

IG (Law and Order), Suraji Kar Purokayastha said "The
rehabilitation package was announced on June 21 and we are
considering all cases after that date."

The 37-year-old, a resident of Moraboni in Jhargram
sub-division and a Maoist squad member for the last three
years, is suspected to be involved in the Jnaneswari train
mishap.

Police also suspect his involvement in the Sildah EFR
camp attack and the abduction of Sankrail officer-in-charge,
Atin Dutta.

According to the package announced, the West Bengal
government would provide a fixed deposit of Rs 1.5 lakh for
three years and Rs 2,000 each per month.

The surrendered cadres would also be paid for the arms
and ammunitions that they deposited to the security forces.
