Sukma collector released by Maoists

Sukma District Collector Alex Paul Menon, who was kidnapped by Maoists in Chhattisgrah almost two weeks ago, has been released by his abductors. "Alex Paul Menon has been released by the Maoists," the regional head of anti-Maoist operations in the state of Chhattisgarh, Ramniwas said. The Naxals kidnapped Menon last week, shooting his bodyguards dead as he toured a village in Sukma district.
The Chhattisgarh government, however, has said that an official confirmation will be given only after Menon reaches Sukma. Earlier on the day, BD Sharma and Professor G Hargopal, who represented the Maoists in the talks with the Chhattisgarh government for the 32-year-old IAS officer's release, left for Tadmetla to receive Menon, who was kidnapped on April 21. The state government has made all arrangements to bring out Menon safely from the jungles following which the officer will undergo a medical examination as he is an asthmatic, he said.
