Activists of the banned Maoist Communist Centre on Friday demanded Rs 7crore from the management of the SAIL-owned Meghahatuburu mine in Jharkhand's West Singhbhum district.
A manhunt has been launched to trace the ultras, numbering around 12, who entered the loading plant when the on-duty Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) jawan left the place reportedly before the arrival of his colleague to relieve him.
Police, who expressed surprise that the matter was brought to their notice two hours after it occurred, convened a meeting with officials of the mine.The CISF has posted 260 personnel, including jawans and officers, for Meghahatuburu and the nearby Kiriburu mines of the Steel Authority of India Ltd (SAIL).
