If they pass the interview, the selected candidates will be placed in different categories and draw salaries varying from Rs. 1,000 Rs 3,000 a month.

The recruitment drive has been launched by five maoist outfits active in Jharkhand, police sources said.

The police have recovered over 100 neatly filled application forms from Maoist hideouts. Fifty of them were seized in Tamar block of Ranchi and in Jamshedpur and Khuti districts.

The application forms seek information sought for any job. These include the candidates name, father name, educational qualification and why she or he wants to enlist.

According to Naresh Prasad, deputy inspector general of police (Ranchi range), most candidates mentioned in the seized application forms that they had tired to join the Jharkhand Police but were rejected.

"The candides have tried to impress the Maoists by spewing venom against the Police and the government," said another Police official.

In the last seven years, over 1,200 people have been killed in Maoist-linked violence.
