Maoists torch two vehicles in Jharkhand

Latehar, Oct 30 (ANI): Maoists torched two vehicles in Jharkhand's Latehar district in revenge for not getting the ransom demanded by them.

Fifteen members of the rebel group of Jharkhand Army Tigers attacked the labourers who were working on the construction site of a road.

Amrendra Singh, an eyewitness of the whole incident, said that few men in civil clothes scared them at gunpoint and later torched the two tractors parked there.

"Few people came in civil cloth and asked us to stop our work. Then took out petrol and other material to burn (vehicles), therefore we started running here and there and at last we hided in the farm," he added.

Ashwini Kumar Nindha, Sub Divisional Officer, Jharkhand state, informed that investigation in the matter has been already initiated and the rebel group would be nabbed soon.

"Police is doing their investigation in this matter. We will trace them, it doesn't matter that they are any new group or old group. Whosoever, banned group or person, with arms and ammunition are doing this would be arrested," said Nindha. (ANI)
