The Jehanabad district police have lodged four first information reports in connection with the daring Maoist attack on police lines and jail.
The police officials said the FIRs were lodged on Thursday nearly four days after the Maoist attack on Sunday night.
According to police sources, the FIRs were filed against the Maoists.
About 1,000 Maoists armed with a wide variety of weapons swooped on Jehanabad town and attacked five government landmarks, including the police lines and the jail.
In the violence that lasted around three hours, a total of 389 prisoners either fled or were freed by the Maoists.
These included some activists of the Ranvir Sena militia, who were dragged away by the Maoists. The Ranvir Sena is an upper caste group that has been waging a war against Maoists for decades.
