Rescued cop still in shock

india Updated: Jun 01, 2011 00:30 IST

A day after his rescue, policeman Holaram Sahu, a victim of the May 23 Maoist ambush in Orissa, continues to be in a state of shock. Admitted in the intensive care unit of a private hospital in Raipur, he is still unable to respond to queries.

Sahu went missing after Maoists ambushed a 10-member police search squad, in which nine policemen died.

A week later, Sahu was found by a taxi-driver on a lonely stretch of road near village Dhaw-alpur in Gariyaband.

"He is delirious and has been given sedatives, he needs rest," said Ram Niwas, aADGP (anti-Maoists operation). It is unlikely that Sahu was a captive, he said.

In that case, the Maoists would not have released him without setting terms or harming him.
