    Maoists 'sighted' in Kozhikode rural

    Team of Thunderbolt commando force begins combing operations

    A team of the Thunderbolt commando force of the State police began combing operations for suspected Maoists at the Vayad tribal colony in Naripetta grama panchayat in the district on Saturday.

    The operations were being conducted with the assistance of the local police and forest officials following reports about the presence of Maoists at the Naripetta and Vilangad regions in the district bordering Wayanad and Kannur districts.

    Official sources said a nine-member armed group, including women, reportedly visited the Adivasi colony and distributed pamphlets to the residents on Friday night. Two of them were suspected to be the absconding Keralites involved with the banned Communist Party of India (Maoist).

    The Maoists were attired in black military style uniform and a few of them also carried guns. They interacted in Hindi and Malayalam.

    They spent about 45 minutes at the colony, collected vegetables and other provisions from the households and retreated back into the forests.

    The tribals and local people informed the police about these uniformed strangers. They said the armed group warned them about their exploitation by the government. The group said they were willing to protect them.

    Police personnel attached to the Kuttiyadi and Valayam stations made a quick search in the region. Subsequently, assistance of the specialised force was requested, a senior official said.

    He told The Hindu that a suspected group belonging to the Left radical outfit had moved into the forests of Nilambur, Wayanad and Kozhikode from Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.

    The Home Department had planned to conduct an operation with the help of Central Reserve Police Force personnel as the Thunderbolt commandos were not trained to search Maoists.

    A week earlier, an excavator was set ablaze allegedly by Maoists at Chooranimala in Kavilumpara panchayat in the limits of the Thottipalam police station in the district.

    The excavator of a quarry- cum- crusher unit was destroyed by them demanding protection of the Western Ghats.

    The police had recovered posters and literature of CPI (Maoists) and copies of its new bulletin 'Kattuthee' (forest fire) from the spot. The pamphlets showed similarity to the ones distributed by members of the Western Ghats Special Zonal Committee of CPI (Maoist).

    Activities of the banned CPI(Maoist) at the tri-junction of the Kerala, Karnataka, and Tamil Nadu borders were reported as early as 2011.

    The security apparatus of the governments of Kerala and Karnataka had been caught unawares after the CPI(Maoist) formed a new guerrilla zone in the Western Ghats.

    Two naxals killed in encounter with security forces

    [​IMG]

    Two naxals were killed while another was arrested after a fierce gunbattle with security personnel in Maoist-hit Sukma district of south Chhattisagrh today, police said. "The face off between the ultras and the joint group of CoBRA (Commando Battalion for Resolute Action) battalion and district force took place in the forests of Jagargunda police station limits this evening," Sukma Additional Superintendent of Police Neeraj Chandrakar told PTI over phone.

    According to the officer, CoBRA 201 battalion, a specialised unit of Central Police Reserve Force (CRPF) and a team of local police had been conducting anti-naxal operations in the interior parts of the Jagargunda forest located over 450 kms away from state capital Raipur. On sensing the police team in the restive region, rebels opened indiscriminate fire on the team following which they retaliated, leaving two naxals dead. Following the heavy encounter, ultras fled into the jungle.

    However, one of them was arrested while trying to flee from the spot, he said. Later, security forces recovered the bodies of two rebels and an Insas rifle, two 12 bore guns from the encounter spot, he said. Further details are awaited as security forces have not reached to their camp, he said.

    Soon after the encounter additional forces were rushed to the spot, he added.

    Maoists promise promotions for election attacks, worried MHA sounds alert

    Concerned that the Maoists are going to try deal a bloody blow to Chhattisgarh assembly election process, the home ministry has told Chhattisgarh to stay alert to the challenge till the end of the process and “aggressively” step-up operations against the guerrillas.

    The home ministry advisory – the third over the last fortnight – comes in the backdrop of intelligence reports of “assiduous preparations” by the Maoists to mobilise cadres, plant explosives on the way to polling booths and asking tribals in Bastar region to either leave their villages or stop using main roads.

    The Maoists – desperate to make an impact during the poll process – has promised rewards and promotions for its armed guerrillas for successful attacks.

    Nearly 50,000 central police personnel have been deployed in Chhattisgarh for the two-phase elections on November 11 and 19. This is in addition to about 30,000 personnel deployed on anti-Maoist duties on a long-term basis.

    “It is imperative that the government of Chhattisgarh may work in close coordination with Odisha and Maharashtra to keep an effect check on the cross border movement of naxals,” the home ministry advisory said, asking the security forces to remain in “mission mode” during the entire electoral process.

    Intelligence agencies have also reported movement of large groups of armed Maoists in Narayanpur, Bijapur and Kanker districts. Inputs also indicated the presence of the CPI (Maoist) general secretary Ganapathy at a large meeting of the cadres in the state where small teams were assigned the task of identifying ambush points, planting bombs, detain polling parties and looting the voting machines.

    MHA alert: Ganapathy in Abujhmad

    Security forces claimed to have spotted top Maoist leader Mupalla Laxman Rao alias Ganapathy in the dense forest of Abujhmad trying to organise a meeting of cadres to carry out attacks ahead of Chhattisgarh elections.

    While it is being considered a headway in the hunt for Rao, it has put security forces on their toes.

    In an alert to Naxal-affected states, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) said CPI(Maoists) continue "assiduous preparations" for largescale mobilisation of cadre, assembling and planting of IEDs on polling routes and booths, and forming small teams to locate ambush points to target polling parties and security forces.

    Large groups of armed Maoists, along with senior leaders, have been noticed since October 1 in Narayanpur, Bijapur and Kanker districts. "With regard to elections, several small teams were assigned specific tasks to locate suitable ambush points, plant IEDs, detain polling parties and loot EVMs during meetings where suitable awards with promotions were announced for cadres on successful completion of assigned tasks," the alert said.

    The MHA has asked security forces to step up anti-Naxal operations in Maoist strongholds in Chhattisgarh and adjoining districts in Maharashtra and Orissa. "The security forces must remain in mission mode during the entire electoral process and ensure peaceful elections," an MHA advisory said.

    The Maoists have directed government teachers not to participate in election duty. "In Dantewada district, the outfit has asked some villagers to leave their village on November 10 and ensure none except children and the old remain in the village on polling day. In Sukma district, some villagers were asked to keep themselves away from polling booths, polling parties as well as four-wheelers from November 10," it said.

    The MHA said there have been inputs indicating procurement of incendiary materials and purchase of a vehicle by the outfit for executing its plan to disrupt polls. "The CPI (Maoist) is collecting names and mobile numbers of SHOs, sarpanchs and details regarding buildings where security forces would be accommodated," it said.

    Directing strict security drill, the Ministry said security of polling parties and EVMs needs to be strengthened in view of fresh inputs. Road-opening parties have been instructed to be alert. Identifying likely ambush spots, dismantling IEDs and other precautions were suggested.

    The Centre also advised the Chhattisgarh government to work in coordination with Orissa and Maharashtra to check cross-border movement of Naxals.

    In a startling revelation, the Bihar Police have found a CRPF officer colluding with Maoists and leaking movements of troops to the ultras before anti-Naxalite operations. He was detained late Thursday night.

    The officer, Sanjay Kumar Yadav, is an assistant commandant of the CRPF's 159 battalion and is currently posted as the in charge of the CRPF's Barachatti camp in Gaya. An FIR has been registered in this connection with the Imamganj police station on the basis of complaints made by STF ASI Rajiv Kumar. Pradip Kumar, alleged to be a conduit between the CRPF officer and the Maoists has been arrested.

    Probe by the Bihar police revealed that Yadav was in touch with the Maoists regularly and spoke to them often, said a source. Yadav was on the radar of the state police for quite sometime following adverse inputs about his activities. It was alleged that Yadav was leaking movements of the CRPF ahead of anti-Maoist operations leading to their failure and risking lives of the troops. This allegedly helped the Maoists to flee before a raiding party could reach their hideout, said a source.

    CRPF is the nodal agency leading the anti-Maoist operations across the country. After the complaint, the CRPF has also initiated a probe into allegations against Yadav by senior officers of the force.

    Speaking to TOI, CRPF IG (operations) Zulfiquar Hasan said, "The Bihar Police informed us about one of our officers and we have assured full cooperation in their investigation. We are happy that the Bihar police have detected this case."

    Hasan added, "We are the premier agency fighting the Naxalites in the country and have lost maximum people in anti-Naxalite operations. If any of our officers is found colluding with them, he will not be spared."

    Senior CRPF officers in Patna have already been directed to start a probe into allegations against Yadav.

    The STF has submitted two CDs containing evidence of the CRPF officer's involvement. As per the FIR, Yadav used his mobile phone (8235508929) to pass on crucial information to Pradip on his mobile number 8521425680. Though this mobile number is registered in the name of Abhijit Kumar of Biharsharif, the same was being clandestinely used by Pradip of Imamganj.

    CRPF DIG Chiranjiv Kumar confirmed it saying, "No leniency will be shown to the culprit."

    Sources said Yadav was put under surveillance by the STF and while monitoring the calls, STF personnel came across the involvement of the senior CRPF officer.

    Maoist 'fronts' more dangerous than cadres: Govt to SC

    Acknowledging that "there is no quick fix solution to the Maoist insurgency", the government, in an affidavit filed before the Supreme Court, has said that the 'frontal' organisations of CPI (Maoist), operating under the garb of human rights NGOs, have kept the Maoist movement alive and are more dangerous that armed cadres.

    The Ministry of Home Affairs was responding to a notice issued by the apex court to it along with nine Naxal-affected states on a PIL seeking direction to governments to formulate a central policy to handle the menace.

    The affidavit, filed by Daljit Singh Chawdhary, a director posted with the ministry, stated, "These 'mass organisations' ('frontal') are generally manned by ideologues, who include academicians and activists, fully committed to the party line. Such organisations ostensibly pursue human rights related issues and are also adept at using the legal processes of the Indian state to undermine and emasculate enforcement action by the security forces. They also attempt to malign the state institutions through propaganda and disinformation to further the cause of their 'revolution'."

    The MHA stated that action needs to be taken to counter these 'frontal' groups. The ministry said, "The state governments are required to initiate legal action against the Maoist front organisations in towns and cities, which are the main source of recruitment of underground cadres and also disseminate the unconstitutional and violent Maoist ideology to vulnerable sections of the population. However, initiating legal proceedings against them has often resulted in negative publicity for the enforcement agencies due to the effective propaganda machinery of the CPI (Maoist)."

    Despite the hurdles, the MHA said the government is "committed to combating this problem with all resources at its disposal". Rolling out the figures related to Naxal violence, the ministry stated, "Since 2001, Maoists have killed 5,969 civilians, often branding them as police informers, class enemies, etc. Their activities have cause serious impediments to the nation building process. Since 2006, Maoists have destroyed 1,936 development and infrastructure facilities. They have also kidnapped proactive and sincere district collectors to prevent development from reaching marginalised sections of the society."

    The response further stated, "The Maoists have managed to entrench themselves in certain parts of the country because there was a security and development vacuum in such areas... The Maoist have also created a political vacuum by killing mainstream political workers in such areas."

    2 jawans killed in gun-battle with Maoists

    Nuapada: Two Jawans including a Special Police Officer (SPO) and one District Voluntary Force (DVF) were killed in a fierce gun-battle between Maoists and security forces in Sunabeda sanctuary of Nuapada district on Friday night.

    The two martyrs have been identified as Debendra Dharua and Prakash Rout. The exchange of fire occurred at Dekunpani area of the sanctuary while jawans were reportedly returning to the CRPF camp after patrolling. At least 14 armed naxals opened fire indiscriminately while the security personnel were on their way to the camp.

    The jawans too retaliated in which no extremist was reportedly killed. The Maoists have allegedly looted two guns including an AK 47 and an INSAS rifle from the security forces. Top police officers including Nuapada SP and CRPF commandant have reached the spot to take stock of the situation. The bodies of the jawans have been brought to Sunabeda CRPF camp.

    However, combing operation has not been intensified in the area till the latest report.

    Suspected Maoists, armed with weapons, kill mediaperson in Chhattisgarh market

    Bijapur: Armed Maoists brutally killed mediaperson Sai Reddy on Friday at a weekly market in a forested patch of Chhattisgarh's violence-hit Bijapur district, police officials said.

    "A small group of suspected Maoists carried out repeated attacks (on Reddy) in a flash with sharp-edged weapons at Basaguda village weekly market," said Bijapur's Superintendent of Police Prashant Agrawal.

    He added that a severely-injured Reddy tried to run away but insurgents took hold of him and kept attacking him.

    The assailants managed to escape after leaving Reddy in a pool of blood.

    The attack was carried out in full public view and some eye witnesses called in Sanjivani Express, a free ambulance service, but Reddy died on the way to district headquarters Bijapur.

    Top police officials have blamed Maoists for the gut-wrenching killing of 51-year-old Reddy, who was trusted by the media fraternity of Chhattisgarh for years for his factual reporting from Bijapur where thousands of tribal families have been caught in crossfire between Maoists and police since late 1980s.

    Reddy's murder has reminded the chilling, brutal killing of a journalist, Nemichand Jain, in February this year by Maoists in Bastar region where the ultras run a parallel government in vast forested interiors.

    Maoists kill two kidnapped villagers in Odisha

    Bhubaneswar: Maoists Saturday killed two of the six men they had abducted two days ago in Odisha's Malkangiri district, police said.

    The bodies of Jaga Madakami and Tulsi Behera were found near Bhejangwada area, Superintendent of Police Akhileswar Singh said.

    About 30-40 rebels had kidnapped six people, including a village ward member, Thursday from Chintalwada and Ramaguda village, about 700 km from state capital Bhubaneswar. They set free three of them Friday while one person is still being held captive, the police official said.

    Maoists are active in more than half of Odisha's 30 districts. Malkangiri is considered to be one of their strongholds. The killings come a day after the rebels shot dead a 65-year-old man at a village in the same district.

    Singh said the Maoists have lost their grip on people due to the setting up of a Border Security Force (BSF) camp in the area. Besides, massive combing operations in the region have bolstered the confidence of the people.

    The rebels are also frustrated because people are not cooperating and have, therefore, resorted to terror tactics like abduction and killing, he said.
