NSS call for SENDRA against maoists

Posted by Indian Vanguard on March 7, 2007

Jamshedpur, March 6: Shankar Hembrom, the self-styled president of Nagrik Suraksha Samiti (NSS), would like the state government to increase his security.

After a dozen Naxalites were lynched by the NSS in August, 2003, at Lango village, Hembrom has been strutting around with four police bodyguards. But the number was recently reduced to two and Hembrom clearly does not believe it to be adequate.

He, however, confesses that the NSS is no match to the Maoists. He also admits that while the state has withdrawn its patronage, even a section of the people are opposed to the outfit. But the “childhood friend” of the slain MP, Sunil Mahto, Hembrom today put up a brave face and threatened to launch a renewed drive against Naxalites.

A sendra, he said ominously, is long overdue. ” We have to do something quickly or else living here will become difficult,” he confessed.

Sendra literally means a hunt. And Hembrom is credited with organising several such “hunts” against Naxalites. He was helped by the then East Singhbhum SP, Arun Oraon, who has since been repatriated to his parent cadre of Gujarat.

Oraon provided the NSS with both funds and arms, it is believed, and Hembrom admits that the SP had also helped absorb some NSS members in the police force.

But, ironically, the NSS, confessed Hembrom, is a small and loose organisation and far from strong. More importantly, it does not have a single member, claimed Hembrom, around the village where the Jamshedpur MP was killed on Sunday. “If we had a single member there,” he boasted, “this tragedy would not have taken place.”

The NSS had tried to make inroads into the area, reveals Hembrom. But it received a setback when one of the NSS supporters, Santosh Mahto, was kidnapped and beheaded barely three months ago near Kesharpur, close to where the MP was slain.

Hembrom claimed on the one hand that the MP would invariably inform him as and when he ventured into the area under Ghatshila; and on the other hand he claimed that the MP called him at 4 pm on Sunday to inform that he was entering Galudih — and to invite Hembrom to witness the football match. The second call was made by the MP, he claimed, at 5.15 pm, enquiring why he was taking time to reach the venue. But by the time Hembrom reached near the football field, he could hear gunshots reverberating. He turned back to inform the police.

He believes the killing was to avenge the massacre of Naxalites at Lango. But he does not have an answer to why he allowed the MP to go to an area where even the NSS members were not safe.

click on the image for better view

The differences between the SPO’s(Special Police Officers) and Armed Forces came into light
when both the parties fired at each other after a woman SPO was alledgedly molested by jawans
of Chhattisgarh Armed Police(CAF)….
The SPO are realising now that they have been made gunnie-pig by the State Government of
Chhattisgarh and the Armed Forces in their fight against the Maoist.Not only are the SPO used as Shield
by the brave Armed Forces during combing operations but also the women SPO fall victim to the lust of
the jawans…..
Looks like God is teaching them a lesson for betraying their own Adivasi Brother and Sister…

links between the Maoists of Nepal and Indian Naxalites

Posted by Indian Vanguard on March 7, 2007

Government is aware of ideological/fraternal links between the Maoists of Nepal and Indian Naxalites. There is no evidence of any material relationship. The weapons surrendered by the Nepalese Maoists are not likely to come to the naxalite- affected States of the country. The weapons are being monitored round the clock and are being placed in sealed containers in secure places under UN supervision. Indo-Nepal border is being manned by the Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) and constant vigil is being maintained by them, apart from State police forces of the concerned States. This information was given by the Minister of State for Home, Shri Sriprakash Jaiswal in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha today.

Police feel posters a red herring

Jamshedpur, March 6: Jharkhand police today reacted cautiously to posters in which Maoists are said to have owned their responsibility for killing the Jamshedpur member of Parliament, Sunil Mahto.

Posters, which surfaced in some of the remote villages, are expected to reach Jamshedpur tomorrow, asserted the East Singhbhum superintendent of police, Pankaj Kumar Darad.

The contents had been read out to the superintendent and a description given to him, admitted Darad while voicing his scepticism.

There were reasons to suspect that the posters are a red herring, designed to mislead the police, said police officers.

The poster addresses the deceased MP respectfully as “MP saheb“, which, officers point out, is quite unlike the rhetoric that Maoist posters have used so far.

Both the language and the style, they say, have given rise to the suspicion that some people are desperate to pin the killing on the Maoists.

Above all, unlike Maoists, who are known to do their homework well, the posters contain a glaring factual mistake.

While the posters accuse the slain member of Parliament for having instigated the lynching of 11 Maoists in the Lango village, there is no evidence to link Mahto to the massacre.

Sunil Mahto in fact was not even an MP at the time and, in any case, the Nagarik Suraksha Samiti, which mobilised the operation, was a police and state-sponsored experiment to combat the Naxalites.

Janwadi Kranti Morcha, believed to be a front for the underground CPI(Maoist), had denied the involvement of Maoists on Monday — and both police and now the posters seem to question the premise. Telegraph
