Jamshedpur, May 25: In a horrifying incident that has sent shockwaves through the region, a 50-year-old man lost his life in an improvised explosive device (IED) blast triggered by Maoist insurgents. The tragic incident occurred in a remote village of Luiya under Tonto police station of West Singhbhum, where the man, identified as Kande Laguri, was going about his daily routine to pluck Kendu leaves when he unwittingly stepped on the deadly explosive.
Eyewitnesses reported that the explosion was deafening, and the force of the blast caused severe damage to the surroundings. Local authorities were immediately notified, and a team of police and emergency responders rushed to the scene to assess the situation and provide assistance.

He was simply an innocent civilian going about his daily life when he tragically became a victim of this senseless act of violence.
The news of the man’s death has sparked outrage and condemnation from local communities, as well as various political and social organizations. Calls for swift action against the Maoist insurgents have intensified, with demands for enhanced security measures to protect innocent civilians from such attacks.
Authorities have launched a full-scale investigation into the incident, with the goal of identifying and apprehending those responsible for planting the IED. Additionally, efforts are being made to bolster security in the region and provide support to the grieving family.
This incident serves as a grim reminder of the ongoing challenges faced by the government and security forces in tackling the Maoist insurgency. It highlights the need for a comprehensive strategy to address the root causes of the conflict and ensure the safety and well-being of the local population.
As investigations continue and the mourning for the loss of an innocent life persists, the community remains united in its determination to stand against violence and work towards a peaceful and secure future.
