‘Operation Bargarh’ comes to a knot with top Naxal’s arrest

SAMBALPUR: The Maoists’ plan to strike the district armoury of Bargarh was spoiled after a top leader Misir Besra was arrested by Jharkhand police in September, police has revealed.

Besra, a member of the Central Military Commission of the outlawed group had spilled the beans which was communicated to Bargarh police on September 20.

‘Operation Bargarh,’ as the military intelligence wing named it, was planned meticulously with a threemember team conducting a reconnaissance of the armoury.

The strike would have helped the Maoists strengthen their base.

Police sources said, after scouting the area to assess vulnerability of the armoury, the team learnt that at any given point of time, 300 to 500 weapons could be found stocked in the armoury.

The intelligence wing, headed by Ashutosh, even visited Bargarh in July for a SWOT (strengths, weakness, opportunities and threats) analysis of the armoury’s security arrangement though they had begun their groundwork for the assault in May.

The team members, police revealed, had taken shelter on the outskirts of the town with their sympathisers.

While the team members camped at Bargarh, Ashutosh coordinated planning and movement from Deogarh, a stronghold of Naxalites.

However, after Besra spilled the beans, Bargarh police led by SP Sanjib Panda not only scaled down the armoury but also fortified the town with strategic lighting and cleaning operation.

Panda said they are still on alert and two units of Special Operation Group are deployed in Bargarh to provide security to the armoury.

Physical security has also been strengthened, vigil intensified and efforts underway to identify the place where they had taken shelter during their visit to the district.

Zonal Commander nabbed:

Even though Sambalpur police denies arrest of an hardcore Naxalite from Sambalpur Town on Thursday morning, reliable sources confirmed the arrest of Zonal Commander of the banned Maoist outfit, Chotu Turi alias James from a rented house in Jharuapada area of Sambalpur Town.

The police has also reportedly seized mattresses and incriminating documents revealing that the house was being used as a transit camp.

It is believed that proximity of both the states Chattisgarh and Jharkhand from Sambalpur and onward train communication could have led the Maoist to have a camp at Sambalpur town and elude police surveillance.

Cops spoil Maoists’ party

VISAKHAPATNAM: The CPI (Maoist), which is observing week-long programmes to commemorate the seventh anniversary of the People’s Liberation Guerilla Army (PLGA)’s formation in the agency area, suffered twin blows after Greyhounds personnel repulsed an attack on them and arrested a dalam member and wife of the party’s district secretary in separate incidents this morning.

In the first incident, the Maoists triggered a landmine and opened fire at a police jeep when the personnel were nearing the vehicle at a hairpin bend near Vantlamamidi village in GK Veedhi mandal. Though the vehicle was damaged, only one Greyhounds constable M Ramana was injured in the incident.

The police, however, retaliated forcing the naxalites to retreat into the nearby forests. The exchange of fire lasted for 10 minutes.

Later, Ramana was airlifted by a chopper of the Indian Navy and admitted to a private hospital here. He is said to be out of danger.

In the other incident, Korukonda dalam member and CPI (Maoist) district secretary Jagan’s wife Kamalakka was arrested in Chintapalli mandal.

She is allegedly involved in 61 cases in Visakhapatnam and East Godavari districts. Visakhapatnam (rural) Superintendent of Police Akun Sabharwal confirmed the arrest of the Maoist and said she will be produced in court tomorrow.

Meanwhile, the identity of the three Naxalites, who died in an encounter on Wednesday under the Mampa police station limits, is yet to be established. The police, however, suspect they were Gopal, Krishna and Shankar, all members of the Korukonda dalam.

Govt denies entry to Posco’s site

Posted by Indian Vanguard on December 7, 2007

BHUBANESWAR: Tension mounted in Kujang area near Paradip on Wednesday when a group of anti-Posco activists were denied permission to hold a hunger strike at Balitutha, the venue of last Thursday’s clash where 17 people were injured, official sources said.

Police said that it denied permission to the activists of Nav Nirman Samiti (NNS) in view of the prevailing situation. NNS was one of the bodies opposed to the Posco project.

This apart, the police also did not allow a delegation of the displacement leaders led by former bureaucrat B D Sharma to enter Dhinkia village, considered as the epicentre of the anti-project movement. Sharma had to return from mid-way in the face of opposition from the project supporters.

Sharma later alleged that the police did not help him when a group of people identifying themselves as project supporters prevented them from visiting the area.

Posco Pratirodh Sangram Samiti (PPSS) president who was holed up at Dhinkia village ever since the clash between the two groups, told that the government was trying to hide things happening at the proposed plant site.

He along with a number of Left parties and civil right bodies demanded for immediate withdrawal of police from Dhinkia village.

“We did not allow them to sit at Balitutha as prohibitory order under section 144 of CrPC was imposed in the area last night,” said Jagatsinghpur Collector P K Meherda.
