    Naxals have now developed a fully hi-tech weapons testing laboratory similar to the ones used by the defence forces and the DRDO.

    This has been revealed during investigations by the National Investigation Agency and other Central intelligence agencies following the arrest of Sadnala Ramakrishna, alias Techie Anna, the head of the Naxals’ technical committee.

    Intelligence agencies have information that the Naxals have two fully developed weapons testing labs operational in Chhattisgarh, where they have been putting to test their sophisticated weapons like rocket launchers, claymore mines and a range of booby traps.

    Sources said before any new weapon is inducted for mass use by the Naxal cadres, they are first put through stringent checks at these testing laboratories.

    Though security agencies have launched a massive hunt to track the exact location of these two laboratories, it is suspected that they are situated deep inside the thick jungles in the Abujhmad region.

    It is believed that these laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and the Naxals have invested crores of rupees in them.

    22 truckloads of equipment sent to Naxal labs

    National Investigation Agency (NIA) and Central intelligence agencies have information that Naxals have set up a weapons testing laboratories in the Abujhmad forests of Chhattisgarh.

    “We did get some leads during Techie Anna’s interrogation but then more intelligence was developed following which we got concrete information that Naxals were developing dangerous weapons through R&D at these laboratories. Now we trying to trace their exact location,” a senior investigating official said.

    Sources claimed that the equipment for developing rocket launchers was sent to these laboratories from various cities, including Kolkata and Mumbai, by Naxal sympathisers.

    Investigations have also revealed that at least 22 truckloads of equipment was sent from various places across the country to these weapons laboratories for developing rocket launchers under the direct supervision of Techie Anna.

    “There is also information that Naxals book various consignments under false names showing that they are transporting some goods, though in reality they send weapons and important components for developing weapons by trucks to Chhattisgarh,” the official said.

    Intelligence sources also added saying that Naxals have been working on their rocket-launcher project for a few years now and have achieved 90 per cent accuracy with this lethal weapon.

    DRDO should now outsource their work to these Labs. As it is half of DRDO crowd appears to be comies and the other half castists indulging on discussion like Brahmins vs Others, on Ram and Ravana and Dravid Vs Aryans.

    This evident from the forum.

    the reporter has not seen or confirmed the existence of the so-called labs, just speculation on his part to compare them to DRDO, goes to how reporters these days tend to be sensationalist rather than objective
