    In what its director has termed “sheer jealousy of the state police”, Kanker-based Counter Terrorism and Jungle Warfare College — the country’s premier institute to train security forces for anti-Naxal operations — has in a departmental inquiry been found guilty of everything from irregularities in buying horses to neglecting security by not stocking anti-venom kits.The probe has also recommended removal of director B K Ponwar, a retired brigadier who has held the post since the formation of the counter-terrorism college, for “infusion of some young blood”. The Indian Express has a copy of the report.The college, which is under the state police and has ADG (Naxal) Ramnivas as its supervising authority, was established as the Chhattisgarh government felt the state police was not equipped to confront Naxals. With a staff of nearly 300, it gives training to 2,000-2,500 securitymen every year and sofar around 15,000 have been trained in advanced combat.

    Basant Ponwar was the Commandant of the Army's CIJW School.

    He knows his job.

    If a Police chap replaces him (as it appears that is where the genesis lies), then God Help All.

    One is aware of the Policiya attitude.

    The CRPF chaps who have been killed by Maoists having been ambushed bears witness to the attitude and knowledge of the high ups in the Police towards training and their men as also of the Police having no clue of CI.

    Who made these allegatins in the first place? Interesting that this happens when Naxalis are being quietly decimated in Odisha and Chhatisgarh by systematic operations.
