11 arrested for assaulting Govt. officer in Jharkhand

Eleven people were arrested on charges of intruding into a government office and assaulting a senior officer at Karandih in Jharkhand, police sources said today.

They said a 70-member group had attacked Circle Officer (CO) Chandrabhushan Singh on December 27 in his office. He was beaten up badly and had to be taken to a hospital. His condition was reported to be very critical.

The group had attacked Mr Singh following his refusal to hold a re-election as demanded by a defeated contestant in the Banyagbill panchayat polls, the sources added.
