The 51-year-old politburo member of the banned Communist Party of India (Maoist) Kishenji on Tuesday claimed responsibility for beheading inspector Francis Induwar in Jharkhand two weeks ago. The decapacitated body of 50-year-old Jharkhand police inspector Induwar was found on the Jamshedpur-Ranchi highway on October 6, a few days after he was abducted. Speaking exclusively to CNN-IBN, Kishenji said, “Yes, we take responsibility for the attack. This is a guerilla war. If any force from one side infiltrates then they should be punished.” Maoists shot dead a police officer and abducted two others, including the officer-in-charge and looted arms and ammunition from the Sankrail police station in West Midnapore district on Tuesday where anti-Maoist operations have been continuing. At least 50 armed Maoists, including women, rode up on motorbikes to the police station in Jhargram subdivision where Lalgarh is also located, and opened fire killing the second officer Dibakar Bhattacharya and kidnapped officer-in-charge Atindranath Dutta and an assistant sub-inspector Swapan Roy, the police said. They also looted all the arms and ammunition in the police station, they said. Regarding the killing in Bengal, Kishenji said, “Today we killed another officer.” “The operation against us is being led by the Left Front government in Bengal in the name of joint operation for the last four months. So to combat these forces we need to take revenge. We have warned the state government to stop all deployment of forces,” he added. Meanwhile, the Maoists today demanded the release of women arrested by the joint forces as a condition for freeing abducted police officer Atindranath Dutta. Top Maoist leader Kishenji told this to PTI over phone from an undisclosed location.
