West Bengal: Purulia Operation stopped
Posted by Admin on July 26, 2009
Purulia: Security forces stopped Purulia Operation today because they needed more policemen and trained commandoes to take control of the Maoist strong hold areas.
The operation had to be stopped as the administration thinks that the force needs more detailed planning to raid the Maoist-strong hold areas in Ayodhya hills. Otherwise, the forces may suffer a lot. The border between Purulia and Jharkhand has been sealed.
The Purulia operation started yesterday but security forces found that this is going to be tough operation as Ayodhya hills are redfort of Maoists.
Around 1200 central forces including state police started the Purulia Operation yesterday. The joint forces were divided into three groups to proceed towards Ayodhya Hill in Purulia.
According to the police, Joint forces were using Purulia as a corridor to communicate with Lalgarh. That is why, the adminstration targetted Maoist dens in Purulia.
It is suspected that the Chatrajoda, Dhanchatani, Simulbadi, Kalijorna and Hedalgedha are the Maoists-strong hold areas in and around the hills.
Maoists will observe mourning for seven days of those who sacrifised their lives in fight against the administration. The mourning will start from July 28 and end on August 3. Maoists in each part of India will participate in this mourning programme across the country. They will hold meeting and rally during seven days.
“We are observing the mourning to remember the sacrifice of the Maoists who died fighting against the police”, Maoists leader, Bikash said.
