Jharkhand Maoists torch 35 vehicles in 150 days; contractors panic
Ranchi: Maoists have torched 35 vehicles in the past five months in Jharkhand, hampering the state government’s efforts to woo investors and develop infrastructure. The violent attacks by the Maoist guerrillas have created panic among the contractors involved in construction work.
The state police with the help of paramilitary forces have destroyed many bunkers and recovered more than 2,000 landmines planted by the Maoists in different parts of the state. Police claim to have hit the backbone of the Maoist guerrillas in last one year, but the guerrillas make their presence felt by demanding levy and torching vehicles.
