ZP chief, 3 others 'kidnapped' by Maoists

Maoists on Sunday claimed to have abducted the chairperson of Garhwa Zilla Parishad and three others, and demanded the removal of police camps in Latehar district for their release. Police, however, said they did not have any information about the abduction.

“Zilla Parishad chairperson Susma Mehta and three other persons are in our custody,” a person claiming to be CPI (Maoist)’s ‘Koel Committee’ spokesman informed the media at Latehar over phone.

The four would be freed if the Jharkhand government removed three police base camps set up in Latehar’s Sarju, Odya and Kone areas, said the ‘spokesman’, who identified himself as Sudhirji.
Mehta’s husband claimed that Maoists had abducted his wife, her bodyguard Sunesh Ram, driver Ahmed and CPI (ML-Liberation) leader Akhtar Ansari.
