Home Ministry sits on proposal for special anti-naxal force

The Home Ministry continues to sit on the proposal on much awaited Special Anti-naxal Force (SAF), on similar pattern of 'Greyhounds' of Andhra Pradesh Police, to counter Left-extremism which is being seen as a "virus" engulfing nearly 13 states of the country.

The CRPF, which is designated as the central force for countering anti-insurgency, had immediately started work for creation of such a force after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had asked for the same in December and also submitted a proposal few months ago to the Union Home Ministry.

However, despite getting an in-principle clearance of setting up of ten battalions (nearly 10,000 personnel) to be led by an Inspector General, the Union Home Ministry has not sent the proposal to the Union Cabinet for approval, sources in the Ministry said.

The blueprint for the new force is already in place and the concerned authorities are just awaiting for the final clearance from the Union Cabinet to put the much needed force in action.

In its proposal, the CRPF has submitted that 10 fresh battalions should be sanctioned and, in the meantime, it would deploy an equal number of personnel to begin operations from the day it was sanctioned.

A senior officer K Durga Prasad, 1981 batch IPS officer from Andhra Pradesh, was posted by the CRPF to take charge of the new SAF force for his knowledge and expertise in handling the anti-left wing operations.

What I am noticing is that Maoists have been increasingly taking to firing on the security forces from the security of the hilltops while the police is on a lower ground.

Some way has to be ensured that the forces remain aware of movements on the hilltops surrounding their area of operations in the jungles.

Either they should be given light observation helicopters with spotters or the UAVs that should work in tandem with the forces. Otherwise it will become very difficult for the police and they will be sitting ducks.

What a terrible loss.

And the Maoist marksmen knew exactly when and where to be to make it happen.

Same way, the Maoists had advance knowledge of the UAV flight schedule operated by IAF over Chattisgarh jungles. They used to hide during those times. Therefore the flights had to be discontinued. Another shocker was when the minutes of an internal security meeting conducted by the PM himself at his residence discussing anti-naxal operations were found with the Maoists during a raid.

There were several reports that, after initial success, the UAV schedules were being leaked to the terrorists. The leak of PMO minutes was given wider coverage.

Blast in India's northeast kills 6
A blast at a crowded roadside market Sunday in India's restive northeast killed six people and injured 40, a local official said.

The explosives were strapped to a bicycle at a busy weekly market that sells pigs, goats, vegetables and clothes in Kumarikata in western Assam, near the Bhutan border, local police official G.P. Singh said.

About 20 of the victims were injured critically, he said.

India police survive rebel attack
Twenty-six members of an elite Indian anti-insurgency force have swum to safety after their boat sank following an attack by Maoist rebels.

More than 30 others are missing presumed dead after the clash in eastern Orissa state on Sunday.
"Why did they all have to cram into one boat - and that too without any helicopter cover - when its capacity is no more than 40-45 persons," said one retired police official.

"They were like sitting ducks."

Cant believe a "elite force" cannot commit such basic blunders....esp, being in a land which invented the RoP(road opening patrol) and such fine anti-insurgency concepts!!!!!
Can only imagine what the local police are if the greyhounds are called "sitting ducks"... :oops:

The problems seems to be that the grey hounds became callous after their recent success against the maoists. They almost wiped the leadership of the maoists in the AP. They thought that naxalites wouldn't be capable of staging a attack on them. They paid very hugely for ignoring the SOP due to their overconfidence. This is their biggest loss since their inception in 1989. The other problem seems to be lack of knowledge about the orissa terrain. They are being unfairly asked to do the operations in chattisgarh and orissa when they don't have that good command of those states terrain.

The SOP seems to be sending a sweep party, then another party and then another so on, so that even if one party is attcked, others can retaliate. The grey hounds operate on gurellia tactics. They never comes through the same route they entered, never staying at the same place for long time, have rations with them etc.,.But what happened was these folks crossed the river and searched the forest for two days. They were tired and being over confident from the recent success, they took the route they went into the forest, as the other route meant following a land route which is another two days of walk and walked into death trap.

It seems that some of the police feared drowned were taken hostage and executed by the maoists. One dead body found of the squad has his hands tied in the back.

It easy to make fun of them saying "only in india" and other things, when you have to sit inside in the comforts of your home. They have to go into the forest for days on walk and foresake a lot of things. Atleast have respect for the dead. R.I.P my heroes.

Back with a bang

The Pioneer Edit Desk

Maoists hit back in Malkangiri

It is not surprising that the Maoists have got away with a vicious strike in Orissa's Malkangiri district on Sunday. They launched a devastating blow through a vicious rocket attack on a 64 member joint Andhra Pradesh-Orissa police party close to the inter-State border. The joint forces were on the Sileru reservoir, returning from combing operations when the attack happened.

When their boat capsized, some of the policemen drowned while others were ambushed resulting in at least 39 deaths. Many of the survivors are in a critical condition having sustained gunshot wounds. In part, this is a failure of the Government. The easy manner in which the policemen have fallen victims suggests inadequacy in training methods as well as lack of proper equipment.

It is difficult to understand why the policemen did not know how to swim or did not have life jackets that would have enabled them to survive being plunged into water or face their enemy despite their inferior fighting position. This suggests some uncalled for complacency on part of the Government. However, it is not surprising that the Maoists have struck in such a fashion.

Of late, there have been a number of police successes against them in central western India. This was through better coordination of police operations between various State and Central security forces. This gave rise to the mistaken notion that the Maoists were on the run and the insurgency was being suppressed. The facts appear to be to the contrary. The Maoists have retaliated and in full measure. They were supposedly chased away from Nallamala, Palnadu and north Telengana regions of Andhra Pradesh. They have instead found their way into Orissa.

The Maoists have used inaccessible jungle roads, poorly connected villages and tribal areas that are inaccessible to our security forces, to regroup and strike back. What is of interest about this attack is that it is the result of cold, calculated planning. The policemen were deliberately enticed into hostile territory. They rushed to the site where a Maoist conclave was supposed to be held only to find no Maoists there. They were then ambushed on their way back.

These are the typical guerrilla warfare tactics that have characterised Maoist insurgency. What is somewhat new though is the use of rocket launchers by these insurgent forces. Though the police have long been aware that the rebels possessed such advanced weapons, this is the first time that these have been put to use. This attack and these weapons show the deadly intent and capacity of the Maoist forces.

More than 500 people have fallen to their guns each year. In contrast, the police forces are ill equipped, poorly trained and have low morale. It is therefore for the Government forces to be aware of this terror and to take adequate measures in order to prevent the Maoists from continuing to spread their tentacles.


http://www.dailypioneer.com/indexn12.as ... nter_img=2

It is amazing that there is no specialised school in the whole country to train the anti-Naxal cops in jungle warfare. Shockingly, huge swathes of Central Indian jungles have never been mapped! The cops keep getting equipped with mere rifles, while the nature of the threat demands mortars and machine guns as well as air support through helicopters.

There is some reluctance in the government to equip the anti-Naxal forces with heavier weapons to keep alive the illusion that Maoist problem is not that bad and cops with rifles are sufficient for them. Just like there is a huge resistance to bombing the Maoists from air in inaccessible jungles. How many more cops will be sacrificed to keep the illusion alive that mere rifles are enough to tackle the Maoists?

Basically, to meet the Maoist threat, the same strategy is required as the British used in 19th century to subdue a hostile countryside. The British strategy was based around army and police bases that were fortified with high and thick walls and which could shield the personnel from attacks from all sides till reinforcements arrived. These fortified outposts are missing in the jungles and the cops seem to go on tour from the cities to the jungles and then return.

The outposts have to be in the jungle itself on high ground, well connected with wireless and equipped with a week's rations as well as long range mortars and machine guns. They should also be able to recieve a helicopter for immediate reinforcement and evacuation of the wounded. All anti-Maoist operations should be conducted from these fortified outposts. Since the Maoist strategy is to overwhelm a unit of 20 to 30 cops with about 300 cadres, there is no other way. The cops have to live in the jungles like the Maoists. Going for brief expeditions into the jungles and then returning a week later is not the solution because the cops remain vulnerable all through the march. The shorter the distance they have to walk, the better. For this, outposts in the jungles are essential. The strategy of fortified outposts ("burghs") was also effectively used by the English kings to subdue the Vikings.

Revolutionary writer Varavara Rao says mobile guerilla warfare is the new Maoist strategy.

''Recent Congress has decided that it is a mobile struggle. In mobile war, there is only a shifting of headquarters, not shifting of strategy or war,'' said Maoist sympathiser Varavara Rao.


http://www.ndtv.com/convergence/ndtv/st ... 31:00%20PM

It is amazing to see these "revolutionary" writers and "Maoist sympathisers" openly giving interviews on prime-time TV, and not be behind bars for sympathising with the enemies of the state who are waging a well-armed war against India and killing hundreds of policemen every year. This can happen only in India.

These type of writers, poets, bards, journalists and university professors are a curse on our race. They openly work to subvert the country while nobody dares to touch them because the "liberal" reputation of Indians will be tarnished. Who cares about reputations and certificates from international community? Does China care?

Sanjay, what liberal reputation? Who's liberal reputation? You mean the reputation of a society that destroys priceless manuscripts in a museum, the society that stands up for rapists and criminals, a society thats turns its gaze away when it sees injustice? This is a sham. Please, I hope your comment was a sarcasm.

I am really waiting for the next elections. I have seen the UPA donkeys ruin this country enough. I hope somebody in the new government stops giving a rats ass about liberalism and actually hunts these criminals down.

Tactical errors led to ambush

A couple of years ago, the Greyhounds personnel had abruptly changed their code language while conversing over wireless sets, for they had discovered that the Maoists were able to intercept their conversation and know their movements by tapping the frequency of the wireless sets.

But now, the commandos had been given the latest wireless sets with digital inscriptions (scramblers). Though the officials claim that conversation from these sets cannot be intercepted, they are forced to do a re-thinking in the aftermath of Sunday's incident at AOB (scramblers ensure that the conversations get scrambled and the enemy cannot listen to them, unless the latter has highly sophisticated software).

Did the Maoists intercept the conversation of the personnel that could have led to the shocking incident on the Andhra-Orissa-Border (AOB)?

"On many occasions, the Maoists were able to know the conversation of the personnel who were in combing operations and the teams stood exposed. The old sets were replaced with new ones with digital inscriptions. An enquiry is on to ascertain whether the conversation between the teams was intercepted," top police sources told this website's newspaper.

Never accept casualty:

This is one line the commandos are often told, especially before they start off for forest areas for combing operations. Perhaps, this is the reason why the Greyhounds, right from their inception way back in 1989, had around 25 casualties on their side in the last 20 years, until yesterday when the outlawed CPI (Maoists), who had been baying for the blood of the Greyhounds personnel, struck.

"The Greyhounds personnel killed nearly 700 extremists since their inception in 1989. The feeling of ‘we are the best’ is infused in them as part of their training," officials said.

"We always tell them (the commandos) that once you go in (for combing), the element of surprise is with you. But once you are coming out, it is with the enemy who keeps track of your movements. Element of surprise is the name of the game and a slight error can play havoc," the officials added.

Though officials pointed out several grave mistakes committed by the force yesterday, including the decision of travelling on one single vessel, what surprised them was the time the latter chose to travel.

"They should have started off at 4 am or an hour later in darkness and that too in two vessels instead of one. Further, the vessel had only one entry and exit route and the moment they were ambushed, many could not jump out and the boat capsized," the sources said.


Wasn't a large multinational company making wireless sets under the scanner early this year when hundreds of these sets were discovered with the Maoists? Were the decryption tools handed over to the Maoists by the maker of the wireless sets used by the Greyhounds?

http://www.business-standard.com/common ... =0&chkFlg=

Did the same company supply sets to Greyhounds too? If the supplier of Greyhounds' wireless sets was a Western company and if the Maoists are being supported by a Western intelligence agency, it will be easy for the latter to source decryption tools and pass these on to the Indian Maoists. It will be a very good idea for the Greyhounds in future to use wireless digital sets made by DRDO to pre-empt this possibility.

Police claim Naxals raise funds in Mumbai

Where are Naxalites raising funds? If the narco analysis test confessions of an alleged Naxal sympathiser are to be believed, the Naxalites allegedly extort money from businessmen in Mumbai and even take protection money from the city's dabbawallahs, the army of individuals who ferry lunch boxes to Mumbai's working population.
These disclosures were reportedly made by Arun Pereira, who the police accuse of being a Naxal ideologue; he was arrested in Nagpur last year.

Congress promises another gift for the nation. And there are some very uplifting thoughts about Binayak Sen.

Chhattisgarh anti-terror law to go if Congress returns: Ajit Jogi

Chhattisgarh's controversial anti-terror law will be repealed if the Congress is voted to power in the November assembly elections, former chief minister Ajit Jogi says.

"Repeal of the Chhattisgarh Special Public Security Act (CSPSA) will be the top priority of the Congress government (if it is formed after the polls)," Jogi told IANS in an interview in Raipur.

Mineral-rich Chhattisgarh's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government enacted the CSPSA, which has been likened to the defunct Prevention of Terrorist Activities Act (POTA) that was repealed by the government of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh soon after it assumed office in 2004.

"There is no need for CSPSA as existing laws are more than enough to deal with any given situation," said the Congress leader, who has been confined to a wheelchair since a horrific car crash in April 2004.

This is the first time any Congress heavyweight in Chhattisgarh has commented on the fate of the CSPSA, which human right groups describe as a "black law".

Over 40 people have been arrested under the act since it came into force in 2005 and have been charged with Maoist links. The most prominent among those held is physician Binayak Sen, vice president of the People's Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL).

Sen was held May 14, 2007, in Bilaspur town and is now facing treason and other charges in a court here after the Chhattisgarh High Court and the Supreme Court rejected his bail plea.

Sen has been lodged at the Raipur Central Jail here since his arrest.

"Sen is a renowned physician, he has devoted his life to serving downtrodden communities in the (state's) interiors," Jogi, a bureaucrat-turned-politician, maintained.

"Sen is very poplar in the state. His arrest is a glaring example of the misuse of the CSPSA. It is surprising that he has been described as anti-national," Jogi added.

"Not only will a Congress government scrap but will also plead in favour of Sen in court," he said.

Police “probe” reveals Greyhounds’ foibles
A senior police official who studied the incident in detail disclosed that information about the possibility of the Greyhounds personnel using the launch was leaked to someone at the originating point three days in advance. He told The Hindu that this person could have tipped off the Maoists.
It was human instinct that the men who walked through rain in hostile terrain for three-and-a-half days should choose the short cut methods to return to the base.

Terrorism aims at creating anarchy in society, says Acharya
http://www.hindu.com/2008/07/06/stories ... 040200.htm

Staff Correspondent

‘Schools, colleges and hospitals are soft targets for terrorists’



Discussion: (From left) IGP (Western Range) A.M. Prasad, patron of SRSM National Government First Grade College B. Sudhakar Shetty, District and Sessions Judge K.N. Phaneendra and Home Minister V.S. Acharya at a seminar in Udupi on Saturday.

Barkur (Udupi district): Home Minister V.S. Acharya has said that modern terrorist activities are directed at creating confusion in society, destroying lives and property and portraying the “irrelevance” of the State’s authority.

He was speaking after inaugurating a UGC-sponsored seminar on “Modern terrorism, efficiency of criminal justice system and role of civil society”, organised by the District Legal Services Authority, Department of Collegiate Education and SRSM National Government First Grade College, here on Saturday.

Dr. Acharya said that terrorism aimed at creating anarchy in society. The police, the judiciary and civil society had to play an objective role in curbing terrorism.

He said that trial by media was the latest trend. Human rights organisations were acting as pressure groups, and only the judiciary could give a judgment on an issue.


Dr. Acharya said that schools, colleges and hospitals were soft targets for terrorists. Therefore, disaster management had been included in the curriculum of medical students.

Inspector-General of Police (Western Range) A.M. Prasad said that the first target of terrorists was the elected representatives, followed by civil administration officials. This was done to damage the morale of the police. The next target was the press so that terrorist activities could not be reported. They then attacked the judiciary. “Their aim is to make their (terrorists) writ run large in rural areas,” he said.


Mr. Prasad said that terrorism in India was of two kinds: religion-based as seen in Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir, and ethnic or land-based as seen in north-east India. Terrorists usually recruited adolescents between the ages of 15 and 18 and brainwashed them. These adolescents with little knowledge of the truth became willing pawns and were even ready to give up their lives. Sensitisation of people was essential to deal with terrorist activities, Mr. Prasad added.

District and Sessions Judge K.N. Phaneendra said new laws should be framed to deal with terrorism, and people should be taught to respect human values. Moral education should be made compulsory in schools, colleges and even professional courses, he added.

That is certainly true. So far I have not heard of any human right activist or journalist supporting terrorism get injured or die. Somehow they usually show up only after terrorism attack and not before. How about stationing human right activists all over soft targets in J&K and maoist controlled area? Oh, I forgot they are about human rights and not humans. I guess no human hugging over here to save terrorism's victims compared to tree hugging.

Most of the police forces seems to have Motorola wireless sets. But I have noticed some of them uses Kenwood sets too. Also had seen an Army JCO in Jammu, Sri Nagar highway equipped with a Kenwood walkie talkie. Was just wondering why cant we go for sets produced in India itself.

Added later: The sets in question seems to be Kenwood. The news report link mentions that the company also produces car stereos and home audio equipment etc. Kenwood fits that description.

Leftist / liberal / NGO mafia strike again at Salwa Judum.

Tribal houses burnt by salwa judum members

An independent fact-finding team of people’s groups which visited Lendra village of Dantewada district in Chhattisgarh on June 26 at the invitation of the Campaign for Peace and Justice found that 11 houses belonging to the adivasis had been completely burnt down and razed to the ground by salwa judum members.


The fact-finding team consisted of members from Madhya Pradesh, including the Narmada Bachao Andolan, Bhopal Gas Peedit Mahila Udyog Sangathan and the Madhya Pradesh Mahila Manch.


These adivasis were detained in Konta for several hours by salwa judum leaders on their return the next day and made to sign statements saying they had been lured by NGOs, Ms Panikkar said. The affidavits they had brought with them from other victims were taken away and copied.
So this is the real story. NGOs are trying to cover their tracks...

The shrillness, the urgency, the desperation of the psec-pinko lefties against salwa judum indicates strongly that it seems to be working. {Where's the beer, honn??}. These same 'independent fact finding teams' (who funds these, btw?) are nowhere to be seen near Nandigram or Kashmir valley.

Time the victims of maoist violence and the nationalists develop thick skins, show these dorks the figurative finger, and move on.

Whats more, mass media esp TV channels seem to well understand how far they can push such dorkish leftism. They steadfastly bury news of violent backlashes against foreign prosleytizers and Maoists simply because the sympathies of the majority of Indians would not be leaning left-liberal on these matters, IMO.

Tribals pay price for Maoist ‘links’


Hyderabad, July 7: The Gutti Koya tribals who migrated to Andhra Pradesh from Chhattisgarh are now paying the price for their alleged pro-Maoist attitude. Angered by the Chitrakonda incident in which Maoists ambushed and killed a party of Greyhounds, police has strongly opposed the government extending support to these tribal groups through welfare schemes.

For instance, police has urged the rural development department not to implement the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme for Gutti Koyas who have crossed over the state from Chhattisgarh. While the rural development officials wanted to rope in tribals for the scheme so that they could get work and wages, the police and intelligence officials are strongly opposing this on the plea that the tribals are known supporters of Maoists and are helping the extremists.

The issue came into fore recently when some non-governmental organisations and human rights activists requested the government to help the tribals earn a livelihood, pointing out that they were victims of Salwa Judum, a violent anti-Naxal movement functioning with the covert support of the government in Chhattisgarh.

Nearly 1.5 lakh tribals from Bastar and Bijapur districts of Chhattisgarh have crossed over to the border district of Khammam in the recent past after being caught between the Salwa Judum and Maoists. The state government had initially started various schemes for these tribals to prevent them from being exploited by the Maoists. "We have brought the tribals who crossed the border early on to the mainstream by giving them ration cards and other benefits," said a panchayat official.

According to the police, the Gutti Koyas don’t deserve such benefits since they are an ‘advance party’ of the Maoists and should be treated with suspicion. "The local police has told us that these tribals don’t have any job cards and they are coming and going as they please," said Mr K. Raju, Principal Secretary of Rural Development.

"So we dropped the plan to extend NREGS to these various tribal groups," he further added. The tribal welfare department also decided that Gutti Koyas, who have sought shelter in the state’s forests, would not be eligible for land and forest rights in Andhra Pradesh. Revenue officials are also not in favour of giving Gutti Koya tribals shelter in the state panchayats.

The tribals are in dire straits since as per revenue laws they don’t have rights in their old habitations either as they are no longer residents of panchayats in Chhattisgarh. They had come in hordes to the state from 644 villages in Chhattisgarh, after the Salwa Judum started harassing them. Environmental groups working in Chhattisgarh say that more than 3.5 lakhtribals including Gutti Koyas have been displaced and more than 2.63 lakh tribals have gone missing in the last one year. Thousands of them had come to Andhra Pradesh.

Last year, revenue authorities stopped action against the tribals after some NGOs approached the High Court against forcible eviction of Gutti Koyas from the Bhadrachalam area. However, the tribals are now really feeling the heat with the police opposing any move or step by government departments to help them.

@deccan reporter. Yaar atleast dont contradict yourself in the same report. When you are telling a lie atleast stick to one figure.
BTW why doesn't deccan publish the name of the person who writes the report. Is this some new kind of journalism?

Bangladeshi intelligence making rapid inroads into West Bengal

Around 100 specially-trained DGFI spies are operating in the state

KOLKATA: Bangladesh's Director General of Forces Intelligence (DGFI) has slowly started making its presence felt in West Bengal, with around 100 specially-trained DGFI spies operating in the state, trying to build a network.

The intelligence branch (IB) of West Bengal Police has alerted the state home department in this regard. As per IB, these DGFI agents are operating in groups in districts on the Indo-Bangla.

IB secured this information from the two DGFI agents it arrested from a hotel in Kolkata recently. Bangladeshi nationals Shamim Akhtar and Sheikh Abdul Malik told IB they had been appointed by DGFI to set up bases in West Bengal.

"Each group has seven to ten dedicated agents and each team is headed by a member of DGFI's highly-sophisticated Bureau-X," a senior IB officer told DNA. He said Bureau-X was the latest of the 12 DGFI bureaus and comprised only the best and highly- specialised spies. IB suspects around 15 Bureau-X members are active in West Bengal.

"Bureau X members are agents of both DGFI and Pakistan's ISI," the IB officer said, adding that besides regular espionage training from DGFI, they received specialised training from Pakistan Rangers in handling deadly weapons and sophisticated gadgets.

Bureau-X members fluently speak a number of languages, which provides them additional flexibility in espionage. The IB officer said the DGFI agents operating in West Bengal spoke all the various dialects in the Indo-Bangladesh border districts.

ULFA cadres vouch for peace, but leaders indulge in violence
Wed, Jul 16 10:05 AM
Guwahati

The disconnect between the ULFA leadership and its cadres has been an open secret in Assam for quite a few years. This came out into the open last week when two major divisions of the outfit's mainstay 28th battalion, revolted against the leadership accusing them of working against the interests of the people of Assam.

The people of Assam have welcomed this development. Meanwhile, in desperation ULFA resorted to violence and killing of innocent people.


"We battalion level leaders are not competent to sit in such negotiations. This is why we are convinced that direct talks between our central leadership and the Indian government, in conjunction with the Assam government is the need of the hour," said Mrinal Hazarika, a former cadre and "commander", 28th battalion, ULFA.

Noni Gopal Mahanta, Professor, Conflict Resolution, Guwahati University, said, "I believe that other battalion might realize that this is quite serious. How far a leadership, which is outside the state, can realize this burning issue? So in that way, this is the fundamental difference between the previous kinds of surrendering as compared to this time."

It is not only the analysts who are appreciating the positive development, the people of Assam too are happy.

Assam Public Works, a non-government organization working for peace in the state, organized a peace march to welcome the change.

"First of all, we welcome the 28th battalion, which as declared ceasefire. We request all the battalions to come forward and sit for the talks to solve the problem of Assam," said Abhijit Sharma, Director, Assam Public Works.

Thousands of the people have come out on the streets. It is this pressure for peace and disenchantment with violence that compelled the cadres of the ULFA to join the mainstream and debunk their leadership that is operating from a foreign country.

"I firmly want to appeal that we need a good political strategy. We need good policy to tackle the insurgency and that is why I strongly believe that it should be the effort of the government of India, to bring the leader to the negotiating table and peace will become lasting and sustainable," said Noni Gopal Mahanta.

But the question is does ULFA leadership want peace? How can the government hold talks with an outfit that is indulging in mindless killing in desperation?

"Whose interest Paresh Barua is serving? Of India or of Assam or of inimical forces?" asked Tarun Gogoi, Assam Chief Minister.

In recent months, security forces have managed to curb the activities of the ULFA.

In addition, lack of people's support and sympathy for the outfit and its cause has been a major reason for the marginalization of the organization in the state. By Peter Alex Todd and Vaschipem Kamondan (ANI)

21 Orissa policemen feared killed by Maoists

In the second major strike by Maoists in Orissa in less than three weeks, 21 policemen were feared killed in a landmine explosion and firing by the ultras in Malkangiri district on Wednesday.

The van carrying the members of the Special Operations Group was on its way from MPV 126, 50 km from Malkangiri, to MPV-41, when the landmine went off.

''We suspect that all the 21 personnel in the van were killed in the incident,'' Director General of Police Gopal Chandra Nanda told PTI. The SOG personnel were ambushed by the Maoists, who felled trees to block the Kalimela-Motu road, to stop the vehicle.

When some of the policemen alighted to clear the road, they were fired on by the Maoists and their vehicle was damaged by the landmine explosion triggered at about the same time, police said.

Though the vehicle was not completely damaged in the blast, as it was an anti-landmine one, it overturned. When the policemen trapped inside it tried to come out, they were gunned down by the ultras.
