CPI Maoist meeting in DK

CPI Maoist meeting in DK

Bhopal: Senior IPS officer of Madhya Pradesh cadre, Vijay Raman who has been recently promoted as a Special Director of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) by the Centre to deal exclusively with Maoist menace in the country, will be posted at Raipur in Chhattisgarh.

Orders in this regard would be issued soon, official sources said here today.

Born in Kerala, the 58-year-old Raman will co-ordinate with Director Generals of Police (DGPs) of the seven naxal-affeced states including Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Jharkhand and network with the armed forces having powers to call them at any point of time, they said.

He was authorised to report directly to the Union Home Minister, P Chidambaram and the Union Home Secretary about the problems being faced by the security forces during anti-Naxallite operations and other related issues, they said. Read the rest of this entry »

Peace can come to Bastar only when the State stops treating the adivasis as its enemy

Posted by Admin on September 17, 2009

Chhattisgarh 22Source: Open Space

Peace can come to Bastar only when the State stops treating the adivasi people at large as its enemy and lets them return to their villages.

The Government of Chhattisgarh admits that since the start of Salwa Judum in the year 2005, 644 villages of district Dantewada, whose overwhelmingly adivasi population is about 3.5 lakhs, have been emptied out. Our common sense understanding that enmasse displacement on this scale could only have been made possible by extreme violence, is vindicated by the horrifying incidents of arson, loot, murder, rape, and widespread arrests by the SJ and security forces that have continuously been coming to light, and which can no longer be ignored.

In honest moments, the security experts of the Jungle Warfare School, Kanker admit, that this is the well known American counter insurgency strategy of “draining the water to kill the fish”. Though many of us, who are witness to widespread displacement all over Chhattisgarh for rich mineral resources, believe that there is also considerable evidence, that the motive for ground clearing is acquisition for mining companies. Whatever the motive, what is the situation in Dantewada today? Read the rest of this entry »

Families paid to claim Andra C M YSR shock deaths

Posted by Admin on September 17, 2009

Related post: 344 die in the wake of YSR’s demise

Andhra Pradesh Congressmen are going to extreme lengths to show how scores of people in the state had died of shock following former chief minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy’s tragic helicopter crash.

Ever since Reddy’s body was found in the Nallamala forests on September 3, there have been reports sourced to the Congress party of deaths from heart attacks and suicides from all parts of the state.

However, cross-checking some of these cases revealed an uncomfortable truth that many had suspected all along – that these people had died of natural causes and their deaths could not be linked to Reddy’s accident. The investigation also exposed how cynical local Congress leaders, and in one case allegedly a state minister, had paid the families of those who had died from natural causes since September 3 to say the deaths were due to shock following the former chief minister’s accident.

The money was evidently used to buy their silence on the actual cause of death of their kin. Read the rest of this entry »

40,000 sq km under Maoist control, govt tells house panel

Posted by Admin on September 17, 2009

Maoist Dominated area In indiaNEW DELHI: A day after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh described naxalism as the gravest internal security threat, a parliamentary panel was informed on Wednesday that the Red ultras were calling the shots in nearly 40,000 square kilometre area — mainly parts of the dense forest area in Chhattisgarh, Orissa and Jharkhand — where the government has virtually no control.

Earlier, home minister P Chidambaram, while addressing police chiefs in a conference on Monday, stated in detail the extent of the menace. He mentioned that over 2,000 police station areas in 223 districts in the affected states were partially or substantially affected by naxalism.

The bare facts about the menace also came up for discussion in the first meeting of Parliament’s Standing Committee on home affairs here on Wednesday.

Besides briefing the panel — headed by BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu — on naxalism, the home ministry officials also presented before them reports of the overall internal security situation in the country.

Earlier in the day, the home minister, while addressing the concluding session of the three-day DGs’ conference, asked the state police chiefs to quickly complete the ongoing Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and System (CCTNS) in order to increase coordination among various agencies.

The CCTNS project covers all states and Union Territories. The system will provide enhanced tools for investigation, crime prevention, law and order maintenance and other functions like traffic management and emergency response.

Midnapore, Sept. 16: A CPM leader was killed last night in what was believed to be an encounter between Maoists and anti-rebel vigilantes in a West Midnapore village.

CPM leaders, however, said the party’s local committee member, Ajoy Patra, was dragged out of his house in Sheora village, about 20km from Lalgarh town, taken to a forest a kilometre away and shot dead. Police, who gave the time of the murder between 8pm and 10pm, said they were probing how Patra was killed.

Villagers of Kuturia, near which the encounter allegedly took place, gave a version different from the CPM’s. They said the 45-year-old leader, who had played a key role in building a resistance squad against the Maoists, was killed during a two-hour “shootout”. A bullet hit Patra in the chest.
