The powerful blast that killed three CRPF jawans and injured eight others in Aurangabad district of Bihar on Monday was passed off as ‘Pagli Didi’.
At least three CRPF personnel were killed and eight others, including Dhibra police station SHO Amar Kumar, were injured in a landmine blast near Baranda Mor under the Dhibra police station area in Aurangabad district on Monday, barely three days before the polling in the parliamentary constituency on April 10.
Intelligence wing of CRPF has now decoded that the bomb was passed off as ‘Pagli Didi’ in intercepts, something the security agency failed to crack.
CRPF DIG Chiranjeev Prasad said as the CRPF personnel were trying to ‘secure’ the place before the arrival of the bomb disposal squad from Sasaram, the landmine exploded. The explosives were apparently planted in a series, said the DIG.
The official expressed concern over the improvisation being made by the Maoists who have now started planting bombs in a series.
The security agency is worried what other unsuspecting names the Maoists would have given to bombs to derail the poll process in the state.
