The NIA has filed its second supplementary charge sheet in a case related to a Naxal attack on former MLA Gurcharan Nayak in which two police personnel were killed in Jharkhand in January 2022, an official said on Monday.


The charge sheet was filed in a special NIA court in Ranchi against two armed cadres — 25-year-old Tivari Bankira alias Shaka and 20-year-old Sadan Korah alias Sajan — of the proscribed CPI (Maoist) terror group on Saturday, a spokesperson for the federal agency said.

The official said the pair, hailing from Jharkhand’s West Singhbhum district, has been charged under various sections of the Indian Panel Code and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
