‘More naxal attacks likely’

Posted by Indian Vanguard on September 24, 2007

KOLKATA: The Maoists’ decision to dissociate themselves from Nepal’s interim government has got the Intelligence Branch (IB) of West Bengal police worried.

With the Maoists abandoning democracy in Nepal, their counterparts in West Bengal are gearing up for a series of insurgency operations in the coming months, according to sources.

Intelligence findings also revealed that communication channels between Maoists in Nepal and those in Bengal have opened again. Top IB sources told DNA that silence on the part of West Bengal Maoists for the last few months was a strategic decision following lack of patronage from Nepal.

“This renewed communication with the parent group (Maoists in Nepal) has also been picked up by Maoists in Jharkhand and Bihar,” a highly placed IB official told DNA.

Maoists in the state have also outlined a three-prong strategy to highlight the return of Maoists in Nepal to insurgency.

The first and foremost component of the strategy is to free comrades who are currently locked up in different prisons of the country. Recently IB had submitted report to the state government cautioning it about the Maoists’ plans to attack the Krishnagar prison and free their 16 comrades.

The second component is to attack and destroy some of the established and ongoing major industrial projects in the state.

The third and final component of the strategy is to assassinate select police officials and CPI (M) leaders, particularly those who are active in anti-Maoist operations.
