Published: July 8,2009

Hazaribagh (Jharkhand), July 7 A dozen Maoists, who had allegedly planned to blow up the Bishnugarh police picket at Dudhmania here, have been arrested, police said today.

After a tip-off, security forces rushed to the NH-100 and nabbed them last night, district SP Pankaj Kamboj said.

Maoists, who had deployed teenage villagers, asked them to keep a watch on police movement while the seniors execute their plot by laying landmines near the police picket, he said.

"To divert police attention, the Maoists also decided to loot the SBI&aposs Banaso branch on the same route,"he said.
