Maoists blow up BDO office, railway tracks
RANCHI/DHANBAD: Maoists blew up a block development office and exploded landmines on railway tracks in Jharkhand on the second day of their two-day nationwide strike early on Monday.
The bandh was called in protest against the recent killing of top Maoist leader Koteswar Rao alias Kishanji by security forces in neighbouring West Bengal.
Around 1.30 am on Monday, the Maoists blew up a block development office at Harihargunj in Palamu which also houses the office of MGNREGA. The computer room attached to the block office was damaged. Palamu SP S K Jha said, "Nobody was injured in the blast as the office was already vacated." As a precautionary measure, employees had been shifted to a nearby police station.
Later in the day, police arrested Jitendra Korwa, a suspected Maoist, in Chainpur in Palamu district. The Palamu SP said Jitendra was wanted in a number of cases related to violence. A spokesperson for the Maoists' Koyal Shank Zonal Committee claimed responsibility for Saturday's attack on the convoy of Independent MP Inder Singh Namdhari. The rebel also threatened to carry out attacks till Thursday.
On Sunday night, armed Maoists blasted railway tracks with landmines near Matari station between Dhanbad and Gomoh. Over 30 trains were delayed because of the blast. Many long-distance trains were stopped at different places on the Howrah-Delhi route. Dhanbad divisional railway manager Sudhir Kumar supervised restoration work. Train services were restored on Monday morning, divisional operations manager (East Central Railway) Ved Prakash said. "Train services on the Howrah-Delhi route were suspended because of damage in the tracks. Some trains were stranded at different stations between Gaya and Dhanbad as a precautionary measure. The Ganga-Damodar Express, Jodhpur-Howrah Express, Howrah-Kalka Mail were delayed by several hours because of the track damage," Prakash said.
As the area is considered to be a stronghold of Maoists, railway engineers could reach the damaged site between Matari and Nichitpur stations on Monday morning with RPF jawans. The rebels had damaged tracks at two places between Dumir Vihar and Gomia, and Hehegara in the Dhanbad division on Sunday.
On the other hand, life was paralyzed in some pockets in western Jharkhand, particularly Latehar, Palamu and Garhwa. National Highway 75 that passes through the region wore a deserted look. Long-distance buses and trucks carrying mineral came to a standstill. Its effect was felt even in towns like Latehar, Palamu, Simdega, Khunti, Lohardaga, Gumla, Chatra and Hazaribag.
Latehar was the worst victim of the bandh as the brutality demonstrated by Maoists in gunning down security forces sent panic waves all through the district. According to villagers nine policemen trapped by the Maoists after landmine blast on Saturday were shot from close range on their heads. This place of incident was 1 km from Garu police station and 4 km from the Lavar police picket. In Amrapara region of Pakur district, police recovered two landmines on Sunday night that were defused safely on Monday. One of the landmines, weighing 20 kg, and another weighing 5 kg were planted under a railway bridge but were defused before they could be triggered.

The even attacked the CoBra camp.
Time to go offensive.
Get Mrs Roy, dress her like a cop and send to jungle for starter.
Perhaps a retaliation for Kishenji's death?
When something is nearing its end, it goes into full swing before being totally obliterated. I echo what Chidambaram had proposed. Go into full scale offensive against the Maoists and finish them off.
it may not be possible to clean it full, where ever the corruption is their, it raises again.

pakistan should stop intervene in India personal matter..
Jharkhand is full of Jungle and most of the local people are part time Maoist. They will do regular work during day time and will turn out to be Maoist during night. Exactly same thing happens in Bihar. Becoming Maoist has become fun now. Its high time we must launch an offensive against them as now they are up to full time terrorist operations. They have lost their cause which even we respected long back. Time to eliminate them......
I don't think Pakistan is involved in the Maoist insurgency. They are probably getting their money and weapons from PRC or PRC backed groups. However, given an opportunity, Pakistan would love to help these Maoists.
Time to rethink and activate the lazy system.
