PLGA commander quits outfit

4 Jul 2009, 2204 hrs IST, Uttam Mukherjee, TNN

LOHARDAGA: Sub-zonal platoon commander of the People's Liberation Guerrilla Army (PLGA) Sanjay Yadav has parted ways with the outfit along with his
trusted lieutenants. PLGA, the ultra outfit of the CPI(Maoist), is quite active in the Lohardaga-Latehar-Gumla region.

Sources in the state intelligence claimed that Sanjay quit the PLGA due to his growing differences with the outfit's zonal commander Nakul Yadav. They said that although he has not yet announced his decision to either form a separate outfit or join hands with the People Liberation Front of India, it is probable in all likelihood that he may, indeed, form a separate outfit which would eventually be joined by other disgruntled Maoist cadres from Bihar, Jharkhand, Orissa and Chhattisgarh.

The sources claimed that some Maoist cadres from Orissa and Chhattisgarh have already joined Sanjay's group, which is currently camping in the bordering areas of Lohardaga and Gumla.

Lohardaga SP Subodh Prasad said: "We have reports that Sanjay and his close aides have parted ways with the PLGA along with a huge amount of money and arms. We also have information that Nakul's group is on the lookout for Sanjay's hideout. Police, of course, are looking for both the groups."
