Posters have said that the Maoist attack which took place in Aurangabad at Bharatiya Janata Party lawmaker, Rajan Kumar Singh's house on Saturday was because of some money troubles between the Naxals and Singh.

Rajan Singh is a member of Bihar's legislative assembly. 

According to the poster left after the attack on Singh's house, the BJP lawmaker was supposed to exchange demonetized notes worth Rs 5 crore but he did not uphold his promise. The poster claimed that Singh had taken the money and an extra Rs 2 crores went to his cousin. However, the money was not given back.

The posters read, "Rajan Singh ko notebandi ke samay Maowadi dwara badalne hetu diya gaya Rs 5 crore tatha levy ka bakaya Rs 2 crore party ko wapas karo."

A 200-strong group had attacked Singh's residence in Aurangabad on Saturday night. They set his house and 10 cars on fire. They also shot his 55-year-old uncle, Narendra Singh, dead.

However, Singh denied that the Maoist attack had to do with any cash exchange. He instead put the blame on the police for lack of security.

"The Maoist attack in the village is the result of mistakes of both the administration and the state government," he was quoted as saying by NDTV.

He added, "I had given an application to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and the DGP for setting up a police station or at least a police outpost in the village, but no action has been taken. The administration and the state government are responsible for the incident."

Aurangabad's Superintendent of Police, Satya Prakash said that the Maoists set fire to a house belonging to a Dhananjay Singh and also on a dafadar with Deo police station, reports News18.
