This is first time that Maoists have threatened a Judge.
Maoists have threatened to kill a judge of lower court who sentenced five of their colleagues to death on May 25 for killing two CRPF personnel in the blasts during 2014 Lok Sabha elections in Bihar.
Maoists have threatened Additional District Judge-I, Munger, Jyoti Swarup Srivastava, to try him in a ‘Jan Adalat’ (people’s court convened by Maoists) and award him ‘capital punishment’.
They have in past issued the warnings to politicians and the police personnel.
In a letter circulated in North Bihar by Bihar-Jharkhand Seemant Zonal Committee of CPI (Maoist), extremists have condemned sentencing of five “innocent farmers” and called for a mass agitation against order.
Signatory of letter, Laljit Koda, has called for a bandh in five districts of Banka, Bhagalpur, Lakhisarai, Jamui and Munger for 28th and 29th,May,2017 against sentencing.
Following threat Judge Srivastava’s, his security has been enhanced though the Munger Superintendent of Police (SP) Ashish Bharti denied there was any threat.
