Maoists call Singhbhum bandh

Maoists call Singhbhum bandh

Jamshedpur/Ghatshila (Jharkhand), April 8: The Maoists today called for a day-long bandh on 15 April across East Singhbhum district of Jharkhand along the West Bengal border to counter the anti-extremist public platform Nagarik Suraksha Samity’s (NSS) call for a meeting of villagers residing in the extremist-affected areas. To counter the NSS call, the extremists have also issued parallel threats and have warned the villagers to stay away from the meeting “for their own good and safety”.

The NSS had organised their meeting on the football ground in Baguria village of Galudih block, around 45 kms from Jamshedpur. This ground is the same spot, where Jamshedpur MP Sunil Mahato was killed by suspected armed Maoists on 4 March while he was watching a football match. SNS
