    The Naxals have reportedly attacked a passenger train in Bihar.

    The Dhanbad-Patna Intercity Express has been attacked near Kundra halt just before Jamui railway station.

    According to sources, firing is still on between the rebels and Railway Protection Force jawans who were on board the train as a standard security precaution.

    The police says that the Naxals wanted to grab the weapons of jawans.

    More details are still awaited.

    it is being said that the target of the maoists is looting arms of the guards in the train. Forces has been sent to the spot. But, I am worried about whether they have set any trap to ambush the reinforcement. It would have been great to have couple of attack helicopters in this moment.

    So who gave them the Intelligence about arms on train.

    N. Modi was right, from top to bottom the whole anti Maoist effort is compromised.

    When the end comes people do stupid things, naxals are doing same thing. Soon they will be hit so bad that their movement will be gone for ever.

    Attack helicopters to fire on Naxals near and/or aboard a train full of people? Are you daft, sir?

    If they were receiving massive amounts of arms from China, why would they want to steal guns from a train full of guards?

    Simple answer.

    More the merrier.

    There is nothing called 'enough'.

    It would be against the Govt policy to use air against terrorists, who are Indians.

    Except nothing in the report indicates the Naxals stealing the guns even *had* guns to start with. You'd think that if they had arms already, and needed more, they'd at least bring some of their own guns to shoot at the guards with the guns they wanted.

    Or am I being too logical for this forum?

    And even if they did have weapons to start with, why would they attack a train full of armed guards to get more weapons when - assuming what many DFIers believe is correct - they could just ask China for more weapons?

    BSF attack helicopters will do the trick, we can paint big BSF and IAF pilots can be send on deputation. Rudra would do the trick for Naxals. They need to be spanked with iron hand.

    How do you think fired on the running train to start with?

    Slingshot with bullets that explode on contact?

    It will be the day when you are logical! :)
