    WARANGAL: Superintendent of Police Soumya Mishra denied the role of police in the death of four Maoists who were killed in Bhupalpalli explosion on Thursday.

    In a statement here, she said it was the fault of Ramakanth and his friends that led to their death.

    Referring to statements of NTSZC member Ganesh, the SP said, he was trying to disown the responsibility for the death of his comrades.
