Dumka, Dec 2 (UNI) Jharkhand Agriculture Minister Nalin Soren today urged the state government to deploy Jharkhand Arms Police(JAP) in the district, in view of the recent extremist activities here.

Mr Soren, who represents Shikaripara Assembly constituency of the district, said that the matter would also be discussed with the state's Director General of Police, seeking deployment of two battalions of JAP in Ramgarh, Shikaripara and Gopikandar police statios areas of the district.

Activities of pasting posters in these areas were common and it shows that the ultras were making their presence felt in the area, Mr Soren added.

Few weeks back, the CPI(Maoist) ultras killed a local leader in the Ramgarh police station area of the district.
