BREEDING TERROR: Naxals train children at a training camp in Bihar.
The Naxals in Bihar are doing what the LTTE, numerous Islamic terror outfits like the Al-Qaeda, Lashkar-e-Toiba, the Hezbollah and several African rebel militias have done to horrific effect — recruit children to fight their wars.

Bihar police had gone on record to claim that Naxal groups had come out with a new recruitment scheme that revolves around hounding hapless villagers to give up a child either male or female to join the red army.

In the absence of villagers filling missing children complaints, the Naxals responded by dismissing the claim saying that this was part of an elaborate disinformation campaign aimed at discrediting the red army.

Police claim that villagers refused to file missing persons’ complaint because they fear reprisals from Naxal groups.

Naxal isue diktat for UP polls

Posted by Indian Vanguard on April 20, 2007

Lucknow, April 18: Close on the heels of diktats issued by some dacoits to vote for their candidates during the Uttar Pradesh assembly polls, a Maoist group has asked people in naxal-infested areas to elected nominees backed by it.

Distributing pamphlets, Communist Party of India-Maoist has asked people in Sonebhadra, Chandauli and Mirzapur areas to vote for its candidates, who will be in the fray for the sixth phase of elections scheduled for May 3.


Though the Election Commission has so far succeeded in curbing activities of anti-social elements during the first two legs of polls, the naxal diktat has alarmed the state machinery.


Wanted dacoits Dadua and Ambika Patel alias Thokia had earlier asked people to vote for their nominees in Bundelkhand region that goes to polls on April 28.


The CPI-Maoist termed the present government as imperialist and working for welfare of industrialists only.

The group said attempts are on to malign the image of “those fighting for the cause of poor and farmers” and labelling naxalites as terrorists and even killing them in fake encounters.


Terming police and military as puppets of the government “to carry on unabated atrocities on farmers and downtrodden”, the CPI-Maoist also cautioned people against the media which it said was “spreading rumours against naxals so that they were cut off from the public at large”.


It also appealed to the people to deposit licensed as well as illegal fire arms with the party and contest elections by joining it in large numbers and grab power in the state.


A police team had last week raided Pokhariya village in Sonebhadra where Maoists had asked locals to mobilise their votes in its favour, but the naxals escaped. Pamphlets in the name of Nari Mukti Sangathan Tez Karo (expedite women’s freedom group) were also circulated in the area, police said.


In the fifth phase the authorities are also facing a challenge to counter dacoit Dadua’s diktats in favour of his brothers Bal Kumar Patel and R K Patel, who are contesting elections from Patti (Pratapgarh) and Karvi (Chitrakoot) respectively, where elections are due on April 28.


BSP candidate and sitting MLA from Manikpur (Chitrakoot) had already registered a complaint with the EC about Dadua’s attempt to influence elections in the region.


Dadua’s son Bir Singh is chairman of district panchayat of Chitrakoot and is considered very influential in the region.


Thokia, whose mother Pyari Devi Patel is contesting from Naraini (Banda) is also trying to influence the elections.


Meanwhile, state Chief Secretary, Shambhu Nath, and senior home department officials had recently met officials of the troubled areas and gave them strict directions to take necessary measures to deal with an iron hand “any attempts made to affect the elections”.


Home department officials said central paramilitary forces along with state police and PAC personnel would be deployed in these areas to ensure security of voters as well as the candidates. (Agencies)

State Chief Secretaries meet over internal security

Posted by Indian Vanguard on April 20, 2007


State Chief Secretaries meet over internal security

New Delhi, April 20: Internal security, with special focus on Naxal violence, will be top on the agenda of a meeting of state Chief Secretaries convened here on Friday by Cabinet Secretary B K Chaturvedi.

With Naxalism posing the biggest threat to internal security, the high-level meeting is likely to discuss ways to deal with emerging situation in the backdrop of some recent incidents.

Intelligence inputs have hinted at the vulnerability of the stock market, sea routes and the uninhabited islands which could be used as a safe haven by terrorists.

Sources in the MHA said the meeting would be attended by Home Secretary Madhukar Gupta, Special Secretary (Internal Security) M L Kumawat and other senior officials dealing with internal security and Naxal management.

Though billed as an administrative reform event, the meeting is expected to be much more than those held annually to take stock of the internal security situation.

This is because of new threats from sea routes, terror funding, terrorists` interest in stock markets, pumping of fake currency by terrorist outfits and fresh attacks by ultras.

The MHA has also convened a meeting of the coordination centre on Naxalism here on April 26 after completing its exercise of reviewing operational strategies to tackle Naxalite activities in nine states and deliberating on development aspects.

The coordination centre, comprising Chief Secretaries and Police Chiefs of nine states hit by Maoist violence, is expected to discuss changes in operating procedures of paramilitary forces and state police.

J’khand: Naxals united in violence

Posted by Indian Vanguard on April 20, 2007

Ranchi (Jharkhand): This admission from Jharkhand’s top cop, after a recent landmine blast in Bokaro killed 15 STF personnel, shows that Jharkhand is losing its battle against the Naxals.

“Such incidents in the future cannot be ruled out as the Naxals have planted so many landmines in Jharkhand that even if I use my entire force it will take at least three years to clear the state of landmines,” says DGP, Jharkhand Police, J Mohapatra.


Says Chief Minister, Jharkhand, Madhu Koda, “A national policy is needed for states to fight Naxals.”


However, the police warn that state inaction is only allowing the Naxals to get stronger.


“The Naxals take a cut from all projects and so get stronger,” says General Secretary, Jharkhand Police Association, Chandragupta Singh.


In the recent Palamau Lok Sabha by-poll, jailed Naxal leader, Kameshwar Baitha, came second winning nearly 1.5 lakh votes, showing the clout of the Naxals here.


“We give ‘jolts’ to the state to say the Naxals are ready,” CPI-ML MLA, Binod Singh.


There is a lack of political will in fighting Naxalism in Jharkhand apart from the fact that the Naxals seem better organised, better motivated and better led than the police.
