Maoists eye SEZs in Delhi, Mumbai

Posted by Indian Vanguard on November 5, 2007

Projects planned by big business are on their radar

NEW DELHI: Maoists are increasingly forming bases in the special economic zones (SEZs) of Mumbai and the National Capital Region comprising Delhi, Gurgaon, Faridabad, Ghaziabad and Noida.

In addition, Rajasthan is also seeing a lot of activity.

The SEZ in Mumbai is actually planned in Navi Mumbai encompassing Dronagiri, Kalamboli, Ulwe and the JNPT area.

A senior security official said a document recovered from Maoists also showed that they plan to enter areas where some big business houses are investing.

Some of the big names include the Ambanis, Tatas, Jindals, Tatas, Essar and the Mittal group.

“There are some non-government organisations that have come under the scanner of intelligence agencies and we are keeping a watch on them,” he said.

A report prepared during the recent director-general conference in Delhi says that in all, three SEZ areas have been seeing large-scale Maoist penetration.

This has become an issue of concern to security agencies, more so when Maoist sympathisers do not just offer a cover but also help them increase their contact with people living in the area.

“By penetrating in Delhi and Mumbai, Maoists do not just want to increase their influence but also send a message that they want to emerge from their jungle strongholds and operate in cities,” said a senior security official.

“What worries us more is that people and organisations are helping them form bases,” he added. There are now indications that Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Chennai are also on the radar.
