Security beefed up in Gaya after Maoist threat

 A day after Maoists threatened to blow up Gaya airport and kill its director, CPI (Maoist) has now threatened to carry out a similar attack on Patna and Gaya railway stations.

A letter in this regard was issued by the Jharkhand unit of CPI (Maoist) and sent to Gaya station manager B N Prasad through registered post on Thursday. Threatening to blow up railway stations with dynamite, the letter has been signed by two “Maoist leaders” Ravindra Kumar and Anjani Kumar alias Mantu of Giridih (Jharkhand).

A case has been registered by the Gaya police on the basis of the statement by the railway station manager.

Incidentally, the threatening letter sent by Maoists to Gaya airport director Dilip Kumar a day earlier, was also written by the same rebel duo, besides having signature of a third person, Anil Kumar.

Following the threat, the City SP of Gaya, Avkash Kumar held a security meeting with the top CISF, CRPF and Intelligence Bureau officials. The top cops have advised the Gaya airport director and his family members to remain confined to the airport campus and move out of the premises only with adequate security.

Similarly, security arrangements were beefed up at Patna and Gaya railway stations.
Meanwhile, the Government Railway Police and the Railway Protection Force personnel carried out random checking of luggage in passenger as well as goods trains for explosive materials.
