Claiming responsibility for the murder of Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) leader Sudesh Paswan in Bihar’s Dumaria last month, Maoists have justified their dastardly act by holding him responsible for the ‘killing of the banned outfit’s revolutionaries’ and have gone on to describe him as ‘ring leader of police informers’.
A hand-written pamphlet, which appeared in Imamganj area of Gaya, warned those colluding with the police and being their informers.
It also lashed out at LJP leader Chirag Paswan and former chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi for shedding ‘crocodile tears’ over the incident.
The LJP had earlier condemned the murder of Sudesh Paswan and demanded President’s Rule in the state in view of rising crime.
Chirag Paswan had also slammed the ruling ‘grand alliance’ for prevailing lawlessness in the state, and said those raising their voices are being murdered.
Sudesh Paswan was campaigning for panchayat elections near Dumaria when he was shot dead.
