Maoist shot dead four in Ranchi



Ranchi: Accusing them of helping the police in anti-Naxal operations, Maoists on Thursday night shot dead four persons including an eight-year-old girl near here.

The incident took place at Baruhatu village, about 60 km from here, when three motor-cycle borne rebels opened indiscriminate fire at Pradip Munda, his daughter and two of his friends near his house, SP (Rural) Michael Raj said.

The Maoists charged them with helping the police in their anti-Naxal operations. However, the deceased never helped the police in any such operations, he said.
