Additional session judge, Mohd Taufiqul Hassan had on 6th September convicted the two Maoists, namely, Sanatan Baski and Sukhlal Murmu alias Pravir Da and acquited five others due to lack of evidence. These two convicts were awarded capital punishment today.

Sukhlal Murmu alias Pravir Da is a resident of Badwadih village of Giridih district. While Sanatan Baski is a resident of Chirudih village in Dumka district.

Additional Public Prosecutor, Surendra Prasad Sinha, stated that the duo had killed the then Pakur Superintendent of Police Amarjeet Balihar and five other policemen in an onslaught near Kathikund while they were returning to Pakur after attending a meeting with the deputy inspector general of police Priya Dubey, in Dumka on 2nd July 2013.

Sinha added that Pravir Da, a member of the outfit’s Special Area Committee (Bihar and Jharkhand), is serving life term since August 9, 2016, in connection with another murder case.

In a similar case last year a court in Munger district of Bihar had awarded death sentence to five Maoists for an attack in which two Central Reserve Police Force personnel were killed in 2014, retaliating to which the Maoist guerrillas at a “Jan Adalat” (kangaroo court) in Bihar had two days later pronounced death penalty for the Additional Sessions Judge, Jyoti Swarup Srivastava, who had awarded the death sentence to their five colleagues.
