Two shot dead by Maoists in Bihar village

PATNA: Suspected Maoist rebels shot dead two people and seriously injured two others in a village in Vaishali district of Bihar, police said on Saturday.

A group of armed Maoist guerrillas killed Subodh Kumar Singh and his brother Sudhanshu Kumar Singh at Ghoswar village under Sadar police station near the district headquarter of Hajipur, about 30 km from here, late Friday.

Police said the victims were associated with Bihar's ruling alliance partner Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Their relatives Pinki Devi and Anil Kumar were grievously injured in the attack and were admitted to the Patna Medical College Hospital on Saturday.

“Both were first admitted to the Hajipur Sadar Hospital and referred to Patna Medical College after their condition deteriorated,” a police official said.

Vaishali Superintendent of Police Paras Nath said a combing operation was being undertaken to nab the Maoists.
