Reds blame cops for Aurangabad blast

GAYA: The outlawed CPI (Maoist) has blamed the Aurangabad police for the tragic death of eight persons including seven children on Sunday and attributed the tragedy to a "police conspiracy" to malign the Maoists.

Paramjeet, the Maoist spokesperson who rang up TOI to make the allegation, said the Aurangabad police deliberately abandoned the live cylinder bomb to defame the Maoists.

According to Paramjeet, the Pachokhar villagers were given the impression by Aurangabad police that the cylinder bomb had been rendered ineffective and as such converted into an innocuous object inviting locals' curiousity. He claimed he was in possession of a vernacular daily published from Patna in which police officials were quoted as saying that the cylinder bomb has been rendered ineffective.

Paramjeet claimed the Maoists did not believe in killing innocent people.

Aurangabad SP Vivek Raj Singh vehemently denied that the police ever told the villagers that the cylinder bomb had been rendered ineffective.
