Chaibasa police foil ‘jailbreak’ plan of Naxalites

Four including three jail guards of Chaibasa Jail arrested

Chaibasa: West Singhbhum police claimed to have foiled the jailbreak plan of Naxalites on Monday. Four persons including three security personnel of the jail have been arrested in this connection.

According to SP Kranti Kumar Gardesi, the Naxalites had planned a jailbreak by promising to give a bribe of Rs 10 lakh to the jail security staff. An advance payment of Rs 4 lakh was given to the jail guards by the labour union leader of Gua, Rama Pandey, said the SP.

The SP said police had got a tip-off about the jailbreak plan just in time. Three former Army personnel, Vijay Khalkho, Chamu Munda and Juel Horo, posted as jail guards, were arrested along with Rama Pandey, he said.

Gardesi said the three accused guards were posted in Chaibasa Jail during the jailbreak of 2011 and 2014.
