Naxals struck again last night. This time they kidnapped the RJD candidate from Maneka constituency in the poll-bound Jharkhand.

Ramchandra Singh and his aides were reportedly kidnapped by Maoists from neighbouring Chhattisgarh.

Singh and his supporters were returning home after a function when they were kidnapped.

"Singh was kidnapped from the Latehar district. And there is also information that they have been let off. The police are trying to establish contact with him," said IG of Police Rezi Dung Dung.

Singh represented the Man-eka constituency in the dissolved state assembly and has been re-nominated from the seat for the forthcoming polls.
