Alert Sounded as Maoists Bandh Starts This Midnight

In the wake of the 24-hour bandh called by banned CPI-M, an alert has been sounded across Bihar. The bandh begins this midnight.

The CPI-M has given bandh call in five states to protest the hike in prices of essential commodities and petroleum products. The states are Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Orissa and Chhattisgarh.

“All police stations have been put on a maximum alert to thwart any attempt by the Maoist rebels to disturb peace,” Additional Director General of Police (Headquarters) Neelmani said.

He said that patrolling has been intensified in vulnerable pockets in Patna, Gaya, Jehanabad, Nawada, Aurangabad, Kaimur, Rohtas, Banka, Munger, Lakhisarai and Jamui districts.

Patrolling of railway tracks, the often soft target of Naxalite attacks, has been heightened.
