Three top officials of Jharkhand's Latehar district removed

Ranchi, May 1 (PTI) Three top officials in Jharkhand have been removed from their posts in the wake of widespread naxal violence in Latehar district disrupting the first phase polling on April 16, official sources said today.
Those given the marching orders are Latehar's Deputy Commissioner Sarvendu Tathagat, Deputy Inspector General of Police Nandu Prasad and Superintendent of Police Hemant Toppo.

While Tathagat has been asked to join the personnel department, both Prasad and Toppo have been asked to report to the state police headquarters, the sources said.

The action of the authorities in the state, which is under President's Rule, comes a fortnight after widespread naxal violence shook Latehar district, including the naxal seize of a passenger train near Hehegarha in that area. PTI
