Suspect In Deadly Train Sabotage Held In India
June 20, 2010
Bapi Mahato is known as the leader of the People’s Committee Against Police Atrocities, a militia group that has traditionally been backed by Maoist rebel groups across the country.
Insurgent violence has been rife in the region since the 1960′s, and more than 6,000 people have died since rebellion was sparked.
The train sabotage in May is widely considered to be the worst in the history of the rebellion, with 150 people dead.
Umakanta Mahato and Asit Mahato, two members of the PCAPA believed to have been heavily involved with the attack, are still at large.
