Maoists suspend 'Bibidh'

The Maoists have suspended Bibidh from the position of commander of thirddivision of People's Liberation Army (PLA).
In a statement issued by Maoist deputy commander Prabhakar, it has been informed that he was suspended to ease the investigation into the killing of Ramhari Shrestha.
The Maoists as well as the government have formed investigation committees to probe the incident.
The relatives of Ramhari Shrestha have been accusing Bibidh of being responsible for the killing of Shrestha, who was abducted and killed in PLA captivity in Chitwan camp.
