J'khand Maoist leader suspected to be behind Inspector killing


"Who else could be behind the brutal killing than Kundan Pahan?" an IPS officer told reporters. Pahan, who heads the Jharkhand Regional Committee of Maoists, carried out all his operations on the Ranchi-Jamshedpur national highway and his area of influence extended to East Singhbhum, Gumla, Khunti and Ranchi districts. He was also suspected to be behind the killing of former JDU MLA Ramesh Singh Munda and a DSP and wanted in several cases, including looting a bank van carrying over Rs one crore last year.

The officer claimed that the Maoists were shaken after the arrest of Dalo Sao and other leaders in the recent past and anti-Naxal operations. "The fight against them will continue."
Induwar was abducted on September 30 from Hembrom Bazaar in Khunti district, about 70 km from here, and his decapitated body was found on Wednesday at Raisha Ghati
