Medininagar, Jharkhand: Hand-made maoist posters triggered panic in village.
Hand-written posters, allegedly issued by Maoists, warning a “police informer” of action, were found pasted on trees in Jharkhand’s Palamu district on Monday, sparking panic among locals.
An officer said that the police, on receiving information, visited Jharkhand’s Thekhi village and seized the posters.
Speaking to ANI, Sub-Divisional Police Officer Surjit Kumar said that a search operation is currently underway in the area to catch those responsible for creating panic among locals.
The posters, written in Hindi and signed CPI(Maoist), threatened to take action against a person, who they suspect is a police informer, Surjit Kumar said.
According to sources, Maoists had been regrouping in the state over the last few months. Similar posters, challenging the administration and intimidating local residents, have also surfaced in the recent past in the state’s Khunti, Hazaribagh, Dhanbad, Giridih and Chhatra districts.
