Maoists Attack Court Premises to Free Commander; 3 Persons Injured

In a Maoist attack in Bihar, a senior government official and two security personnel were wounded. The rebels, during the two day bandh called by them to protest police action in Lalgarh, attacked civil court premises and freed their ‘commander’ Babulal Besra.

According to district magistrate PK Jha, over 50 Maoists, armed with sophisticated weapons, entered into the court premises, broke open the lock-up and freed Besra, who belongs to Giridih in Jharkhand.

Jha said that they later assaulted a police team which was trying to obstruct them and snatched carbine and two rifles from them.

The DM said that in the attack, Deputy development commissioner (Lakhisarai) Rajiv Ranjan received minor injuries when chunks of wood flying from the smashed window of his room hit him.

Two constables, who suffered splinter injuries, were rushed to the government hospital here for treatment, Jha said.

Meanwhile, the Maoists also blasted a tower of a private telephone service provider in Gaya and a community centre in Aurangabad.
