The Jharkhand Police have started a poster campaign in Maoist-hit areas of the state asking people not to deposit or exchange the demonetised currency notes belonging to Maoist guerrillas or their organisations.
“The villagers should not deposit the illegal money (of Maoists) in Jan Dhan accounts, otherwise they will be held responsible for such transactions,” Inspector General of Police (operation) M.S. Bhatia, who is also the Jharkhand police spokesperson, told IANS.
“We are putting up pamphlets in remote rural areas where hardcore Maoists have dumped their cash. We (police) want to inform the villagers in advance that they should not be duped,” he said.
