Maoists threaten to kill politicians' kin

JEHANABAD: Stung by hauls of arms and explosives in Patna, Gaya, Munger and Bokaro (Jharkhand) by the Bihar police in recent weeks, the CPI (Maoist) has threatened to carry out bloody reprisals against the kin of officers, ministers and politicians.

A two-page statement issued on Wednesday in the name of Gopal, spokesperson of the Bihar-Jharkhand-Orissa and Chhatisgarh Special Area Committee of the CPI (Maoist), said the arms and explosives seized by the police were all basically meant to protect the defenceless people against the fresh wave of state repression. "Putting national sovereignty to ransom, the UPA government at the Centre was playing second fiddle to imperialist masters led by the USA and the Indian masses are groaning under the yoke of a thoroughly degenerated politician-police-bureaucrat nexus", it said.
Charging the state police machinery with letting loose a reign of repression against the kin of a top Maoist leader, Arvind Kumar, and his aide Subodh Kumar at Shukulchak village in Jehanabad, it said if the repressive action against them is not stopped forthwith, its PLGA guerrillas are ready to give a befitting reply.

Regarding the recovery from the houses of Prabhat and Prince located in Patna, it stated it is a "white lie" as both of them are earning their livelihood on their own and have absolutely nothing to do with the CPI (Maoist).

The CPI(Maoist) warned "if police feel elated at the recent seizures, they should also prepare themselves mentally to shed tears sooner than expected".
