Police lathicharge villagers at Lalgarh

Posted by Admin on July 20, 2009

23naxalPolice today resorted to lathicharge on the villagers of Dharampur, near Lalgarh, when they protested outside the police camp there, demanding that the camp be shifted out of the school premises. About 500 villagers of Dharampur, including school students, today rallied up to the police camp in Dharampur, amed with traditional weapons, and demonstrated outside the camp. Many of them owe allegiance to the maoist backed PCPA (peoples committee against police atrocities).

The villagers demanded that the camp there, alonwith the other camps throughout the Lalgarh region be immediately shifted out of the numerous schools, as it was affecting hundreds of local students. They allegedly tried to storm into the school premises, housing the camp, when the police had to lob tear gas, and lathicharge. Many of those injured included students in uniforms.

For the last two weeks, villagers in Lalgarh have been protesting against the police camps inside schools, and have stepped up their agitation against it.

Many view this as a tactic to levy pressure on the joint forces and administration, as the villagers still suspect the police of their intentions.

29 policemen refuse jungle warfare training, suspended

Posted by Admin on July 15, 2009


Raipur, July 15 (IANS) Twenty-nine policemen have been suspended in Chhattisgarh for refusing jungle warfare training, just days after Maoists massacred 29 of their colleagues, an official said Wednesday.

The suspended policemen – all constables – were posted in Janjgir-Champa district and had been ordered to go for training at the Counter Terrorism and Jungle Warfare College (CTJWC) in Kanker district.
“All the 29 men were reluctant to go for the 15-day orientation course at CTJWC before being deployed for four-month-long postings in areas effected by Maoist insurgency.
I had no option but to suspend them,” Jangir-Champa District Superintendent of Police S.K. Jha told IANS on telephone.On Sunday, 29 policemen were killed in three separate Maoist attacks in Rajnandgaon district. Read the rest of this entry »

Forces could stay in Lalgarh till month end

Posted by Admin on July 5, 2009

Lalgarh (PTI): The central para-military forces, conducting operation to flush out Maoists from Lalgarh along with police, will stay till this month end if the Centre wants, West Bengal government said on Sunday.

“We want the central force to be here till July end. If the central government agrees to it, they will stay,” Home Secretary Ardhendu Sen told reporters during a visit here where the operation entered the 17th day on Sunday.

“The joint operations will continue till normalcy is restored,” he said.

On whether the state would be requiring more forces, he said, “We are not seeking more forces. This is sufficient.”

“No, no NSG (National Security Guard) help was sought,” Mr. Sen said to another query.

Altogether 16 companies of forces including BSF, CRPF, specialised anti-Maoist force COBRA, state armed police, IRB and EFR are engaged in the operation here.

Asked whether Maoists are still there in Lalgarh, he said, “They fired on our forces even yesterday.”

Mr. Sen said the People’s Committee against Police Atrocities (PCPA) chief Chhatradhar Mahto would be arrested whenever he would be sighted. “Mahto is very much here in Lalgarh but he could not be tracked down as yet.”

Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee had said last week that Mahto would be arrested for helping the Maoists in Lalgarh though he was not organisationally with them.

The chief secretary said various schemes were being taken for the tribal belt of Midnapore, Purulia and Bankura districts for their socio economic development.

“We have to identify the problems and deal with them on a priority basis,” he said, adding six senior officers would be coming to the area shortly to initiate the projects.

The State government has recently revived a task force for development of the western region with secretaries of various departments concerned as members. Officials of those departments have reached Lalgarh a few days ago.

The administration would also have to fill up vacancies of different departments unless it would be difficult to implement the schemes, Mr. Sen said.

Chatradhar Mahato, convenor of the People’s Committee Against Police Atrocities, told on Friday that PCAPA was ready for talks with the state government. “However, if the government resorts to violence, we will put up an equal if not a stronger opposition.”In an interview to on Thursday, Gour Chakraborty, the CPI-Maoist’s spokesman put forth the Maoists’ demand for Lalgarh.

Lalgarh demands Maoist amnesty

– Drop all cases since 1998, says leader


April 19: The tribals of Lalgarh want the government to drop all cases against suspected Maoists since 1998 as a condition for allowing police into their area for 12 hours on election day.

That is not all, though. They also want former West Midnapore superintendent of police Rajesh Singh to go to Dalilpurchak in the heart of Lalgarh and apologise for “atrocities” in the wake of the mine blast on the chief minister’s route last November and stop “atrocities on tribal women in the name of raids”.

After a meeting yesterday, the People’s Committee Against Police Atrocities had mentioned the demand for the former district police chief’s apology but not what is potentially the killer clause: dropping cases. Read the rest of this entry »
