Maoist Massacre in Bihar

The Peoples Union for Democratic Rights (PUDR) is outraged by the massacre of 12 people and the wounding of 50 others on 17 February in Phulwaria-Korasi village of Jamui district of Bihar, allegedly by the CPI (Maoist).

The massacre is reported to be in retaliation for killing of eight Maoist cadre on 1 February, who were allegedly taken into custody and then killed by the police. Even if this is true, what causes concern to us is that a party which claims to represent and fight for the emancipation of the “poorest of the poor”, shows such callous disregard for the lives of the very same people, and considers them to be a fair target for acts of revenge.
