Villagers decided to stay away from the meeting of NSS

Jamshedpur, April 6: The assassination of JMM MP Sunil Mahto has apparently resulted into loss of faith in police, especially for the villagers of Baguria, who have decided to stay away from the meeting of Nagarik Suraksha Samiti (NSS), an anti-Naxalite outfit of villagers, against Maoists on Sunday.

The decision was taken by the villagers at a meeting held here last night. "There were a few villagers willing to take part in the meeting. But after the rebels pasted posters in the village on Wednesday warning villagers of dire consequences, no one is willing to come out in open and oppose the Maoists," said a villager.

President of NSS Shankar Chandra Hembram said some villagers were not willing to take part in the meet fearing the rebels. Hembram, however, pointed out that the meeting would have a huge turnout as those supporting the rebels are few in number.

Meanwhile, Maoists have given a bandh call in East Singhbhum on April 15 to protest against the meeting called by the NSS at Baguria on Sunday.
