    Five Naxals arrested in Chhattisgarh

    Five Naxalites have been arrested with cache of arms and ammunition from Maoist-hit Kanker district of Chhattisgarh, police said on Tuesday.

    “Acting upon specific information, a joint team of Border Security Force and local police nabbed the cadres from forests of Maspur village last evening,” Kanker Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) MZ Baig said.

    A muzzle loading gun was also recovered from their possession, Baig said, adding, later two bombs, weighing 7 kg and 2 kg, battery and 10 metre-wire hidden beneath the soil on Maspur—Raoghat road were also recovered based on their statement.

    After getting a tip-off about Naxals holding a public meeting in the jungles of Tadoki, which lies at around 200 km from the state capital Raipur, the patrol was mobilised on Monday morning.

    On seeing the security forces near Maspur village, the ultras tried to escape from the spot. Later security personnel chased and arrested them.

    Four of them — Massu Potai (22), Fandiram Dugga (27), Singrai Potai (40) and Bilas (30)— are wanted in several incidents of crime including murder, landmine explosion, arms and ammunitions loot etc, the DSP said.

    Another arrested Sindhu Maravi (21), was a member of outlawed Communist Party of India (Maoist), the DSP said.

    All the arrested are being interrogated, he added.

    [​IMG]

    Four Border Security Force personnel were killed and two injured when Naxals blew up their vehicle using an IED in Odisha's Koraput district.

    According to security sources, a convoy of three BSF vehicles carrying 18 personnel was ambushed when it was crossing the Patangi and Sunki axis in the district.

    The troops were moving from Malkangiri in the state to Vishakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh when the incident occurred at around 0930 hours during an official movement.

    The Improvised Explosive Device (IED), embedded in the road, exploded as the first vehicle crossed the route, leaving a subordinate officer and three jawans dead.

    A large group of Maoists then began firing on the personnel who retaliated.

    "The troops retaliated and the firing was on for an hour. All the weapons of the ambushed party are intact," a senior BSF officer said.

    The two injured personnel have been rushed to the nearby hospital in Sunki while the gunfight has stopped, the officer said.

    Additional reinforcements from state police and paramilitary have reached the spot and combing operations have begun.

    Naxals recruit 4,000 children as cadres: reports

    New Delhi: Naxals have recruited nearly 4,000 children, including girls, as part of a recruitment drive to strengthen depleted cadre base, said official sources.

    The children were recruited for gathering intelligence about movement of security forces, collect rations and work as couriers, said sources.

    The recruitment drive has been going on in all Naxal-affected states but Chhattisgarh, Odisha and Jharkhand have witnessed the most, they said.

    While the age of boys is as low as 10 years, the average age of girls is 14-15 years, the sources said.

    The girls were also being used for cooking and other manual works for the cadres, particularly the senior ones, they said.

    The Home Ministry has asked the affected states to take necessary steps to stop such activities of the Maoists and try to rescue the children from their clutches.

    There were 285 incidents of Naxal violence from May to July this year in which 117 people lost their lives including 47 in Chhattisgarh, 37 in Jharkhand and 15 in Bihar.

    Maoist surrenders in Koraput

    Koraput: An armed Maoist surrendered before the police in Koraput district following alleged discrimination and torture by Telegu ultras towards Odia tribal cadres, police said on Thursday.

    With a desire to lead a normal life, Jhadu Huika of Gorkhajhola village under Narayanpatna police limits laid down arms in the present of DIG (south-west range) S Dev Dutta Singh yesterday.

    "Odia cadres are being discriminated in camps by Maoist leaders belonging to Andhra Pradesh. We are not being provided with proper uniforms and shoes and are asked to work for longer hours. Many times I complained about it to our leaders but to no avail. Also, life in forest was miserable. Hence, I decided to surrender," said Huka after surrendering.

    Police said Huika had joined the Maoist backed Chasi Muliya Adivasi Sangh of Narayanpatna in 2008 and was providing logistic support to the Maoists group of Srikakulam-Koraput Joint Divisional Committee.

    "Huika was coordinating the movement and meetings of Maoists prior being inducted in the armed squad of the Maoists in 2011-12. He was trained in using arms and was carrying a 303 gun," said Koraput Superintendent of Police Awinash Kumar.

    "The Naxal has confessed to his involvement in around ten incidents. He will be rehabilitated as per the government's surrender policy," he said.

    Ten Maoists surrender

    Malkangiri: Apprehending police encounter, at least 10 Maoists, including a woman cadre, today surrendered before the police in Malkangiri district, police said.

    The Maoists against whom charges including murder, loot and arson were pending, deserted their camps apparently after realising that they could be killed in police encounter if they did not dissociate with the ultras, Malkangiri Superintendent of Police Akhileswar Singh said quoting them.

    Besides, they were also fed-up with the ill treatment meted out by cadre from Andhra Pradesh and Chhatisgarh in the camps and waiting for an opportunity to escape, he said.

    While nine of the surrendered Maoists were militia members, the only woman member was a member of the cultural troup 'Jana Natya Dalam' of Maoists, Singh said, adding they belonged to Raligada and Tekguda villages in the inaccessible cut-off area of Balimela reservoir.

    Those who surrendered were identified as Puyu Jgara, Pullu Pangi, Rangana Butari, Mathlingam Butari, Prasad Rao Kusangi, Hota Itte, Chinabadi Ettangi, Ramna Thamarbi, Sahadeb Thamarbi, Ramarao Duri and Kokli Golari, he said.

    Anti-Naxal UAVs to fly from C’garh

    After operating from a single base in Hyderabad, the UAVs deployed to aid security forces fighting the Naxal menace in Left-wing extremism affected states will soon fly from Chhattisgarh as well to give a boost to intelligence gathering in the Maoist heartland. The move has been afoot for sometime now with anti-Naxal forces demanding that UAVs be flown in the Naxal-infested Chhattisgarh to be able to cover a larger area assisting the forces in intelligence gathering and tracking Maoist activities.
    The country’s specialised technical unit , National Technical Research Organisation (NTRO), is expected to operationalise its base in Chhattisgarh by early 2014.
    The Centre is likely to come up at the Bhilai Steel Plant (BSP) facility in Durg and will host technicians and authorities of the NTRO, sources said.
    The project has already been activated with the initial establishment of five satellite-linked terminal stations at a designated location in the state.
    The sources said the CRPF has also linked the operations of its 10 UAVs with the new facility which will function round-the-clock. The station will act as a gateway for acquiring satellite data and pass them on to ground patrol parties.

    ‘Zero’ Naxal kill in 3 months upsets Home Secretary

    [​IMG]

    NEW DELHI: Chairing a meeting on Friday to assess the security scenario ahead of the two-phase elections in Chhattisgarh in November, Union Home Secretary Anil Goswami expressed his concern over the CRPF and BSF being unable to neutralize even a single Naxalite in the state in the last three months.

    At the meeting, attended by the CRPF director general, top BSF officials and the Director General of Police of Chhattisgarh, it was pointed out by the home ministry that CRPF and BSF had hit a lull in operations in the state while it had been decided that operations will in fact be stepped up after the Darbha Valley massacre by Naxals in May.

    Important state congress leaders lost their lives in the massacre. "No Naxal has been neutralized by the CRPF and the BSF during the last three months. This does not auger well for election build-up since the Naxals have been allowed space to operate with impunity. This needs to be looked into and reversed immediately.

    A purely defensive strategy will not succeed...operations are needed," a home ministry official said, detailing proceedings of the meeting.

    It was also pointed out by the Home Ministry that effective intelligencebased operations need to be conducted and COBRA teams of CRPF need to be deployed extensively and given result-oriented tasks. "The Chhattisgarh DGP and heads of CRPF and BSF were told that the superintendents of police should be provided teams of special forces which are to be used as a striking force during the elections. Maoists have deployed small 'action teams' to hit at security forces. Counter action teams should be deployed by the police to neutralise them," a ministry official said. He said that the home secretary also stressed upon the objective of ensuring "zero casualty" of security forces and civilians during the elections.

    The Home Ministry had last week also sent a detailed advisory to Chhattisgarh government saying the Naxals planned to attack helicopters in the state and had already laid improvised explosive devices (IEDs) on roads that security forces and polling parties are supposed to take during the election process.

    In the meeting on Friday, it was emphasised the state government and paramilitary forces stationed in the state should do extensive checking for IEDs on the roads and buildings during the run-up to the elections and a comprehensive security plan should be drawn up for every single hyper-sensitive and sensitive polling booths.

    "All concerned, like polling parties, have been told to exercise extreme care and caution while returning after the conclusion of the elections," a ministry official said. The Home Ministry will have another detailed meeting with the Election Commission on October 30 to work out a detailed security plan for Chhattisgarh, the state worstaffected by Naxalism.
