RANCHI: Suspected Maoists on Saturday set two mini-trucks carrying vegetables on fire at Patamda in East Singhbhum district on the Jharkhand-Bengal border for “violation” of the two-day bandh call given by the rebels against price rise.

The Maoists also deflated tyres of some autorickshaws plying on the road and opened fire in the air as a  warning to others.

The Maoist called a two-day Jharkhand bandh beginning Thursday midnight to protest against the skyrocketing price of essential commodities, including vegetables.

Sources said in the wee hours of Friday, when the mini-trucks were on their way to Jamshepdur, about 20 armed Maoists stopped the vehicles and asked the drivers and helpers to alight. The vehicles were then set on fire in which one of the mini-trucks was badly damaged and the other was burnt partially.

Officer-in-charge of Patamda police station said a police team with adequate forces immediately rushed to the spot and chased away the rebels. “During the chase, the rebels, who had managed to reach atop the Dalma hills, opened fire at the police team. In retaliation, we also opened fire but there was no casualty,” the officer said.

East Singhbhum SP Naveen Kumar Singh rushed to the spots with reinforcement and launched a combing operations in the area.

In an another incident, suspected members of a banned Jharkhand Prastuti Committee, a splinter of CPI(Maoist), set two pay-loaders of Central Coalfields Limited at coal loading site in Latehar district.

Before leaving the place, they forced the 15 homeguards on duty to follow them. After sometime all jawans were released.

“The JPC members asked the homeguards to convey the message to the CCL top management that loading and unloading of coal should be done manually and not by machines,” a police officer said. TOI
