After a week’s silence, the Maoists Sunday evening set a 48-hour deadline for accepting their demands for releasing the four Chhattisgarh policemen they claim to have abducted Sep 19. “There were a few handwritten leaflets found in Bijapur district’s Bhopalpatanam area Sunday in which Maoists have stated their demands included scrapping the anti-Maoist drive otherwise they will eliminate the policemen within 48 hours,” state police chief Vishwa Ranjan told IANS. Police were also trying to verify whether the letter is genuinely written by the outlawed Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist), he added. Meanwhile four security personnel and six Maoists have been killed in Jharkhand’s West Singhbhum district since Saturday, when the security forces launched a massive operation against the rebels, police said Sunday. Around 2,000 security personnel comprising state police and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel began a combing operation in the Saranda jungles Saturday where 400 Maoists were reportedly present.
