naxal explosive seized in bihar

The Principal Home Secretary of Bihar Afzal Amanullah has warned that the naxalites may carry major attack in Bihar in coming days. On Monday, Bihar Police seized more than 400 kg of explosives, including high-powered gelatin sticks stacked by the Maoists, in Bihar's Naxal-hit Gaya district.

After receiving information from state intelligence, Bihar Police conducted raids and seized explosives from a hut in Ghurenabandh jungle under Barachatti police station in Gaya on Monday.

Gaya Superintendent of Police, Amit Kumar Jain, said:

Acting on a tip-off, that the naxalites were clandestinely transporting the explosives including high-powered gelatine sticks in two bullock-carts to the jungle for a major operation, police raided the hut and seized the explosives. The police also arrested one Ramswaroop Bhuiyan in this connection.

Earlier on Saturday, the BJP held the UPA government's "soft policies" responsible for the development of naxal network across the country. The party also criticized the biggest civilian killing occurred in Jharkhand that claimed seventeen lives. The BJP leaders also attacked on Madhu Koda government in Jharkhand for overlooking security concerns in the state.

According to BJP spokesperson Rajiv Pratap Rudy, the UPA government has to be squarely blamed for the naxal killings in Jharkhand. Due to the government's soft policies, naxal activities are spreading rapidly.

He said:

The Madhu Koda government is more interested in individuals and their constituencies. It has overlooked the interests of the state and security concerns. The government has no responsibility towards the people of the state. This is the complete failure of a government where an independent MLA is CM with the support of RJD, Congress, JMM and other UPA allies.

Rudy further said that the Koda administration has used the huge funds, actually meant for police modernization, for purchasing vehicles for ministers and providing amenities for the ministers in the state.
