Jamshedpur, Sept. 9: The fast-track court II of Awdhesh Mal today found rebel leader Shyam Sinku guilty in an arms case and sentenced him to five years’ rigorous imprisonment (RI).
Sinku, a CPI(Maoist) area commander of Ghurabandha in Naxalite-hit Ghatshila sub-division, was nabbed from the same police station area on June 26, 2006.
On being interrogated, the rebel revealed the address of a hideout in Dumaria. Police had raided the place and recovered two rifles, including a self-loading one. A case was registered against him under the arms act at the Dumaria police station on the basis of an FIR lodged by officer-in-charge Manoj Kumar Gupta.
Sinku, a Kumardubi resident, had told the police that he visited the steel city a number of times with his comrades. He also divulged secrets about the outlawed outfit’s operations in Ghatshila.
Sinku, considered a hard-core rebel, was involved in many subversive activities in and around Ghatshila.
Last year, a Jamshedpur fast-track court had sentenced him to 10 years’ RI after he was found guilty of a murder attempt on the village headman of Kasiabera village. Sinku was the first rebel to be convicted in a court of law by the Jamshedpur civil court.
The administration took stringent security measures while producing the rebel before the fast-track court today.
