Again this style of beheading a police cop as a part of freeing their Top and beloved Commanders behind the bar proved the solidarity of Maoist Movement in India in the attached states of Bihar, Jharkhand, Orrisa, West Bengal and Telengana Region. When Kobad G is a popular leader in Telengana and Bihar, Chandrabhusan holds his area of action in Bihar and Jharkhand. Chatradhar Mahato is now treated as Maoist celebrity in West Bengal to the Bengal Intellectuals. Chatradhar has a good connection with his Comrades in Bihar and Orrissa as revealed by the Bengal Police very recently.
However Mr P Chidambaram, Central Home Minister condemned the slain of Francis Induwar vehemently while the state concerned vowed not to spare the killers of Induwar. Jharkhand DIG Rajkumar Mallick described the incident as a most heinious work of Maoists and they acted as nothing but a coward.
"He has been beheaded. The body along with the head was recovered near Raisha Ghati under Namkom Police station today, about 12 km from Ranchi," Superintendent of Police (Rural) Hemmant Toppo said.
A poster was seen pasted on a tree saying the body was that of the police officer.
Induwar, who was an inspector with the state Special Branch, had been kidnapped on September 30 by the Maoists from Hembrom Bazaar in Khunti district, about 70 km from here.
The Maoist's South Chhotanagpur Committee secretary, Samarji, had on Saturday called a local newspaper and said the Inspector would be released only after the police set free Ghandy, Chhatradhar Mahato and Chandra Bhusan Yadav.
The police were engaged in intensive combing operation ever since the inspector's abduction.
Ranchi Superintendent of Police, Praveen Kumar said, "The act was perpetrated out of sheer frustration following the arrest of several Maoists, including their central leaders."
Asked whether the police had received any call from the Maoists to release their comrades in exchange for Induwar, the SSP said, no such call was made to the local newspaper."We have not received any communication whatsoever from them (Maoists)."
While Ghandy was arrested on September 21, Chhatradhar Mahato was caught by Bengal CID sleuths posing as scribes on September 26 at Lalgarh in West Bengal.
Bhushan Yadav, also arrested by the Bengal police on October 2, has since been handed over to Jharkhand police.
The arrests have given the police a chance to unearth the Maoist network in the country, said a senior police officer. The body of the inspector has been sent for post mortem.
