The CPI (Maoists) on Wednesday delivered a picture of a jawan from the tip top CoBRA unit to show he was in their authority. The picture was delivered a day after the Dandakaranya Special Zonal Committee (DSZC) of the restricted association gave a press note requesting government-ordered questioners to whom the jawan would be given over to.
In the picture delivered by the Maoists, CoBRA jawan Rakeshwar Singh Manhas is seen sitting on a plastic tangle under a transitory haven, potentially at a Maoist camp.
Manhas had disappeared on April 3, following a savage firearm fight between security powers and Maoists on the Sukma-Bijapur line. In the repercussions of the snare, assortments of 22 security work force had been recuperated.
On Monday, neighborhood columnists had gotten calls that the jawan was in Maoist care.
This was additionally affirmed by the Maoists on Tuesday. “The public authority should announce the names of conversationalists. From that point onward, we will deliver the cop in our guardianship. Till at that point, he will be protected under our security,” Vikalp, representative of the DSZC, said.
In any case, the Bastar IG on Tuesday delivered an explanation in which Manhas was as yet depicted as absent. The assertion said the veracity of the press note was being checked.
