Ranchi/New Delhi. NIA on Wednesday conducted extensive searches at three locations in Hazaribagh and Ranchi districts of Jharkhand connected with associates of the notorious Aman Sahu gang in Jharkhand, in a case relating to extortion and attack on a coal mine.

Digital devices, a Fortuner vehicle and some incriminating material were seized during the searches conducted at the premises of various suspects in the case.

NIA had earlier charge-sheeted 24 accused in the case involving an attack at Tetariyakhand coal mine in Jharkhand’s Latehar district by members of the Sujit Sinha, Aman Sahu and other gangs. The attack was carried out in December 2020, as part of a criminal conspiracy hatched by these gangs to extort money and disrupt Government work.

NIA, which took over the investigation in March 2021, had in February this year arrested one Shankar Yadav, a key aide of Aman Sahu, following seizure of Rs. 1,30,00000 (Rs.one crore and thirty Lakh) from him during searches at five locations in Bihar.
