Naxals blast AP railway station, kill 8 Jharkhand policemen

GUNTUR/RANCHI: Coming on the heels of a landmine blast that killed 14 people in a bus in Andhra Pradesh’s Warangal district on Monday, Naxalites of the People’s War Group outfit struck again on Wednesday, carrying out two attacks in two states.

Early morning, they blew up the Thummalchervu railway station in Andhra Pradesh’s Guntur district, while before midday they set off a landmine under a police jeep, killing eight policemen in Jharkhand’s extremist-hit Latedhar district, police said.

At least 10 Naxalites, accompanied by 20 sympathisers, entered the railway station, 80 km from Guntur town, around midnight.

They asked the assistant stationmaster, passengers and the families of railway employees to leave.

Around 1.15 am, they detonated explosives. The station building collapsed and railway communication system was disrupted. The loss is estimated at Rs 35 lakh.

The railway track suffered little damage and traffic was restored by 9 am.

In Ranchi, just six hours before Chief Minister Babulal Marandi concluded the week-long second anniversary celebrations of Jharkhand, PWG blasted a landmine in Lathedar district, killing eight policemen.

Police said the patrol party carrying six constables, a sub-inspector and a driver went over the landmine on the highway between Neterhat and Betla Park around 11 a.m.

‘‘The blast was so powerful that the jeep was thrown up in the air,’’ said Narendra Singh, a constable at Barwadih station.

7 jawans killed:

Imphal: Seven Central Reserve Police Force jawans of a patrol party were killed on the spot in an ambush by insurgents belonging to Manipur People’s Army, the armed wing of separatist ULFA, at Jivan Nagar near Loktak Hydel project in Bishenpur district on Wednesday. PTI
