In a major breakthrough in the 2019 killing of four Jharkhand Police personnel, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday said it arrested Mrityunjay Kumar Singh, who is believed to have close nexus with the banned CPI-Maoist.

An NIA spokesperson here said that the anti-terror probe agency arrested Singh, a resident of Jharkhand’s Latehar district.

The NIA had registered a case in June last year. The case pertains to the attack on the police patrolling party by Maoists on November 22, 2019 at Lukaiya More in Latehar, which left four police personnel dead while the insurgents fled with their arms and ammunition.

The Jharkhand Police had registered a case and filed a charge sheet against six accused.

The NIA official said that after taking over the probe, the agency had conducted searches at several places in the districts of Latehar, Loherdagga and Palamu.

“During one of the searches at the premises of Singh, unaccounted money amounting to Rs 2.64 crore was recovered. And it was also revealed that a day before the incident Singh had met Ravindra Ganjhu, Regional Committee Member of CPI-Maoist at Bearjanga forest, and had provided him money for the attack,” the official claimed.

Mumbai-NCB

Busting yet another unusual modus operandi, the Narcotics Control Bureau’s (NCB) Mumbai Zonal Unit seized a consignment of drugs concealed in a biography of Adolf Hitler, a top official said here on Tuesday.

Following a tip-off, the NCB on Monday intercepted a parcel containing the book at the Vile Parle East Post Office.

On checking the book, a commercial quantity of 80 blots of LSD hidden in it was found and seized, said NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede.

He added that the LSD was procured from some European countries through the dark net by some youngsters and the payment was done through crypto currencies like bitcoin.

Wankhede said that the common name for the hallucinogenic drug LSD is lysergic acid diethylamide, but there are more than 80 other street names for the recreational narcotic.

It is a synthetically created psychedelic drug known for its induction of a range of psychological effects, and a LSD trip includes various images and sensations which seem real but are not actually occurring, he said.

The latest action is part of the NCB’s ongoing campaign against the drug mafia in the city and efforts to unravel their connections with people in the glamour and entertainment industry, launched after the probe into the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput in June 2020.
