THE arrest of Mohammed Irshad, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha’s Bundu Block president and his two associates- Sukhdeo Swansi and Haradhan Lohra under the Unlawful Activity Prevention Act on Sunday, underlines the issue of supply of goods to Maoists.

The three, Swansi, Lohra and Irshad have been lodged here at the Birsa Munda jail. They were allegedly involved in supplying explosives to the CPM zonal commander Kundan Pahan, whose area of influence lies in Bundu and Tamar block of this district.

The arrest has fuelled demands for a CBI probe into the link between Soren and the Maoists for two reasons. One, the JMM has fielded four veteran Maoists — Satish Kumar, Madan Pal, Masih Charan Purti and Polus Surin — as its nominees from Daltongunj, Vishrampur, Khunti and Torpa constituencies respectively. Two, Irshad, who belonged to his party, was allegedly hand in glove with Pahan.

After a tip off, a police team led by SSP Praveen Kumar Singh intercepted a Bolero (JH01R-4724) and took Irshad, Swansi and Lohra into custody after the search carried out by it led to recovery of goods including 20 flash guns of camera, one bundle of wire, two soldering equipments, more than two dozen Durocell batteries and one charger which were used in manufacturing of the land mines.

Asked from where the accused had procured these items, Singh said the supplier was based in Ranchi. “We have already traced him and hope to arrest him soon.”

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
