Bodies of seven Maoists handed to their kin



Chatra, Jharkhand: Bodies of seven Maoists killed by TPC ultras were handed today to their relatives, police said.

The bodies were handed over to them after post-mortem at Sadar hospital here in the presence of senior police officers, sources said.

There were no claimants for three other bodies, they said.

Ultras of Tritiya Prastuti Committee had killed the ten Maoists yesterday near Lakramanda village and had claimed to have kidnapped as many.

Police, meanwhile, said they had no such information. The rebel outfits have a running feud ever since TPC broke away from CPI(Maoist) in 2002.
