PLFI cadres set ablaze vehicles in Jharkhand

Suspected cadres of the Peoples' Liberation Front of India (PLFI), a splinter group of the Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist), set ablaze vehicles, including an earthmover, two tractors, and tents of labourers engaged in canal construction work at Basia under Basia Police Station area in Gumla District on December 5, reports The Telegraph. The repair work of the irrigation canal between Tapkara Dam in Gumla and Suruda village in Simdega District is nearing completion. It is believed that the construction company's earthmover, tractors and tents were set on fire after the contractor did not pay ‘extortion cash’. "We have identified the group involved in the arson. The culprits will be brought to book soon. Our raids are in full swing," Gumla Superintendent of Police (SP), Anshuman Kumar said. 

On the same day, Police conducted a raid in Kumari forests under Bishunpur Thana area in Gumla District and recovered various items used for making Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), reports The Telegraph. During the search operation, Police recovered around 25 pressure cookers of different capacities, 85 lunch boxes, large plastic and steel containers, nylon strings used for booby traps and other such items used for making IEDs and laying landmine traps. "Our boys have penetrated deep into the forests. We will not let them (rebels) escape so easily. These recoveries were made after being tipped off by local people. This proves that local residents are no longer willing to extend logistic support to the rebels," the Gumla SP added.
