Maoists agent’s property seized in Jharkhand

Ranchi: Police on Saturday seized properties of an alleged Maoists agent in Jharkhand’s Giridih district.

The police said Sawan Bahar restaurant belongs to Manoj Chaudhary, an alleged Maoist sympathizer.

“In all, 11 properties will be sealed. The sealed property belongs to Manoj Chaudhary,” said Neeraj Singh, Sub Divisional Police Officer (SDPO).

Police sources say Maoist rebels have invested the extorted money in real estate. Manoj Chaudhary was arrested a few weeks ago. Based on the interrogation and source of his income, the police prepared a list of properties of Maoist rebels.

Authorities in Jharkhand have launched an operation to seize properties allegedly belonging to the Maoists amassed through their agents.
