After Thursday’s Maoist attack on the Dhanbad-Patna Intercity Express in Jamui district, Bihar Police chief Abhayanand has directed the police officials of Jamui and other neighbouring districts to start extensive combing operations against Maoists.

The area has been a Naxal stronghold for some time and they have executed many an operation from time to time as this is a hilly region area, which is largely covered by forests. Minister of State for Home R P N Singh said the incident was very unfortunate and that contingents of paramilitary forces, including the Central Reserve Police Force and Border Security Force, had been rushed to the spot.
