They now have to face another Jharkhand-based radical group with suspected Maoists owing allegiance to People’s Liberation Front of India (PLFI), earlier Jharkhand Liberation Tigers, seeking to make their presence felt in the remote and bordering pockets of Nuagaon block in Sundargarh district.

As per reports, making their second appearance in the district last night, a group of nearly 16 motorcycle-borne PLFI operatives pasted posters on the outskirts of the district. They were six to eight masked men.

The hand-written posters in red ink warned police informers of ‘mautki saja’, held corruption in government and political machineries responsible for price hike and demanded good food for jail inmates.
