Police on Tuesday detained 10 youth, who claimed themselves to be former Maoist activists, for their suspicious movement outside Nabanna.
During interrogation, they informed the officers from the Intelligence Branch that they had appeared for an examination to secure a government job after returning to the main stream of life.
They had cleared the written examination but failed in the interview. As a result, they came to meet Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee or any senior official at Nabanna hoping to get a job.
All 10 of them were mainly from Bankura, Purulia and Jangalmahal.
Police took details of their whereabouts and after preliminary investigation they were released.
It is learnt that some more youth also went to the residence of the Chief Minister at Kalighat where they were intercepted by the police. They also claimed to be former Maoist activists.
It may be mentioned that nine people, who had claimed themselves to be former Maoist activists, went to Chief Minister’s residence to surrender themselves as they wanted to lead a normal life.
They were taken to the office of the state Intelligence Branch. They had given application expressing their willingness to surrender.
Their application has been scrutinised and sent for verification of their post records by the district police.
