    Maoists let off hijacked bus, staff in Orissa
    Malkangiri (Orissa), June 21: A day after hijacking a bus, Maoists on Sunday set it free along with its staff as their demand for reintroduction of bus services to a remote place was met in Orissa's Malkangiri district.

    "The private bus, hijacked by about 20 armed Maoists yesterday, was allowed to return with its driver and staff as the bus operator agreed to run regular services to Bejingwada area," Superintendent of Police, Satyabrat Bhoi said.

    The driver and staff of the bus were safe and unharmed, he said, adding that the ultras were understood to have assured its owner that no trouble would be created during the bus' plying.

    A group of 20 Maoists, demanding reintroduction of bus services to Bejingwada, stopped the bus near Gamphakunda Chowk, about 35 km from here, and drove away with the vehicle yesterday after asking the passengers to get down, police said.

    Earlier, there were two buses to Bejingwada, but the owners stopped running them in view of the Maoist menace in the area. The bus owner had been "summoned" by the Maoists at Bejingwada, police said.

    The bus was going from Motu to Nunduli in Nawarangpur district via Malkangiri when it was hijacked.

    Huge cache of explosives found in Giridih

    Giridih (Jharkhand), June 21: A huge cache of explosives was on Sunday found at a village in Giridih which the police suspect could have been brought in for use during the Maoists' 48-hour multi-state shutdown beginning Monday.

    "We have recovered 100 kg explosives hidden in a small bunker opposite a temple at Munro village, about 200 kms from state capital Ranchi," Superintendent of Police, Asim Vikrant Minz, told reporters here.

    These explosives could have been used during the shutdown, claimed Minz.

    One person have been taken into custody for questioning.

    The Maoists have called for a bandh in Jharkhand, Bihar, Bengal, Orissa and Chhattisgarh to protest against the security forces storming Lalgarh.

    Eighteen of the 24 districts in Jharkhand are hit by ultra-left extremism.

    Security has been beefed up at all important locations and a strict vigil is being kept on the border areas, particularly on Jharkhand-Bengal border, he added.

    Maoist landmine blast kills 12 cops in Bastar

    Raipur, June 21: As many as twelve troopers were killed and 11 injured on Saturday evening when the truck in which they were travelling hit a landmine planted by suspected Maoist guerrillas in Chhattisgarh's restive Bastar region, a police officer said.

    The blast occurred in a thickly forested stretch of Tongapal in Dantewada district, some 500 km south of here, when an over 40-member search squad of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) men and District Force (DF) was on its way back to its base camp.

    "Maoists blasted a truck crowded with CRPF and DF, seven policemen were killed on the spot, four declared brought dead at Maharani Hospital in Jagdalpur town (headquarters of Bastar district) and one more succumbed to injuries midnight at the hospital where 11 CRPF men were rushed in a critical condition," T. J. Longkumer, inspector general of police (Bastar Range), told a news service.

    He said the death toll may go up as the attack site is heavily forested and reinforcement would take time to reach there.

    "We have rushed extra police force to the attack site but operation against Maoist and search for several missing cops would be possible only Sunday morning," Longkumer said.

    But a police officer in Sukma, the nearest town from the attack site, told the news service over telephone: "It was a meticulously planned attack as the rebels Saturday morning set a few trucks of a private contractor on fire in Tongapal which was a well thought plan to drive the security personnel to the red zone."

    The officer claimed the CRPF men overlooked security advice and boarded a private truck on way back after visiting Tongapal village where a few trucks engaged in road construction work under the Prime Minister Rural Road Scheme, were torched.

    Troops advance from Lalgarh towards 17 Maoist-held villages

    Lalgarh, June 21, 2009
    First Published: 13:18 IST(21/6/2009)



    [​IMG]


    After reclaiming control of key Lalgarh police station area, security forces on Sunday pushed deeper to break the Maoist siege of 17 villages considered strongholds of the ultras and tribals backed by them.

    Security sources said the troops consisting of CRPF, BSF and West Bengal police started moving from Lalgarh to Ramgarh in an operation aimed at sanitising the main road and other connecting routes and wresting control of the 17 villages.

    But the 19-km journey from Lalgarh, which the troops reclaimed yesterday, is likely to be one of the toughest as the road has been mined and the area heavily forested.

    The strategy of the forces will focus on wresting control of Barapelia, Chotopelia and Dalilpurchak in West Midnapore district where top Maoist leaders were reportedly holed up, senior police officers engaged in the operation said.

    Barapelia is the home of Maoist-backed People's Committee against Police Atrocity (PCPA) convener Chatradhar Mahato and the PCPA headquarters.

    After a night halt at a school premises in Lalgarh, the joint forces began a mine-clearing exercise on the Lalgarh-Ramgarh road, the sources said.

    Security forces had yesterday moved into Lalgarh and taken control of the police station even as ambushed a convoy en route to the area injuring six policemen.

    Tribals clash with cops on Naxal trail
    22 Jun 2009, 0247 hrs IST, Sukumar Mahato, TNN


    BELPAHARI (W MIDNAPORE): More and more cases of clashes between security forces and tribals — some reportedly sympathisers of Maoists and the rest innocents — are emerging as the battle of Lalgarh enters a crucial phase. On Sunday, when security forces arrested three rebel suspects — Lubu Tudu, Lodhu Singh and Dadan Hansda — they faced a hostile crowd baying for their blood.

    Scores of men and women resisted the forces as they caught hold of the three. A woman, Rajari Tudu, led the village folk and attacked the BSF jawans with household knives, injuring a jawan.

    The security forces are facing another trouble: at many places shopkeepers simply refuse to give them eatables citing Maoist boycott. On Sunday afternoon, security personnel from three police camps — Banspahari, Neguria, Jamtalgora in this part of Jangalmahal — beat up a shopowner, Gostha Das, in the Chakadoba Market after he refused to sell food articles to the jawans. The locals said Gostha declined them food because of a "police boycott". "The jawans then barged into his shop and started beating him," said Tarani Hansda.

    This was not all. Angry jawans raided the huts. Tarachand Soren, panchayat executive of the Banspahari gram panchayat, was pulled by his collar and given a thrashing. Block Development Officer (BDO) Bhaskar Pal had to talk to the additional superintendent of police (operations) M. Murlidharan following which Soren was released.

    All these ignited the simmering tension in the neighbouring villages. A large number of women came out of the huts and dared the forces on patrol near Neguria Police Camp. The police, however, claim that while the locals challenged the forces, the Maoists from the forests fired on security personnel. "The shots from fired from the forest, where Maoist run a training camp," said Manoj Verma, superintendent of police of West Midnapore.

    Local leader of the People’s Committee Against Police Atrocities (PCPA) Jagannath Singh Sardar, however, rubbished the charge. "It’s an excuse to harass the locals," said Sardar.

    He pointed to the plight of the ordinary villagers running for their lives, leaving their elders behind. "This is a malaria-prone zone. Many people are suffering from the fever, but there is no transport to take them to the block health centre, 36 km away. Buses have stopped plying and jeeps demand Rs 400 per patient," Sardar said.

    District Congress leader Subrata Bhattacharya defends Sardar. "I don’t subscribe to the police action. Our own party activist Kalpana Kalindi of Bardanga is a victim of police torture," Bhattacharya said.

    'Scared' Lalgarh cops using youths as shields
    22 Jun 2009, 0232 hrs IST, Caesar Mandal, TNN


    PIRAKATA: The message from Writers' Buildings to show a human face while dealing with the warring populace in Lalgarh apparently hasn't reached the force. Why else would a section of the state armed police (SAP) — terrified of IED explosions - catch hold of local youths and force them to poke around for hidden mines and explosives?

    Acts like this will trigger more calls for vengeance and lead people to doubt the sincerity of the government's attempts to pacify the tribal villagers. It also exposes the lack of preparedness of the administration.

    There are just two CID bomb disposal experts stationed at Lalgarh. A second team is kept in reserve in Midnapore town to be deployed in case of 'VIP movement'. A third is cooling its heels in Kolkata. There is not a single explosives expert with police forces anywhere else in the war zone.

    Ever since Friday evening's blast at Kuldiha, in which the Domkal SDPO's vehicle was hit and three policemen were injured, police have been wary of such attacks. The moment they come across any culvert, many policemen are scared to cross, fearing that Maoists might have planted an IED.

    Four blasts and half a dozen gunbattles have been reported ever since forces started their march to Lalgarh. Though no policeman has died, the guerrillas have scored a psychological victory — they have sown the seeds of fear and anxiety. It's this fear that has led some policemen, who are themselves not trained to detect explosives, to force local youth to do the dangerous job for them.

    Eighteen-year-old Shambhu Ghosh, Madan Mahato (20) and Shakti Ghosh (23) from Dhangori village were among the unlucky locals. They have been on the run since last Thursday when security forces entered the village searching for Maoists.

    On Sunday morning, they were having breakfast at a roadside eatery, close to the Pirakata camp, when a team of policemen surrounded them. One of them asked if they were from Dhangori village.

    "When we said yes, they asked us where we had been hiding for the last three days? We didn't give any answer. One of the policeman grabbed us by our collars and threatened to arrest us of we didn't work for them," Shambhu said.

    The two were taken to Pirakata camp and given three-foot-long S-shaped rods (possibly taken from a construction site). They're then told to scan for any suspicious object — say, an abandoned bag or a box — lying on the roadside and use the rod to poke around and see if it triggers an explosion.

    Police kill 7 supporters of Maoists

    Staff Reporter

    KHAMMAM: Maoists unleashed a fresh wave of violence in Dantewada district of Chhattisgarh, while seven tribal youths — suspected to be their supporters — were gunned down by the police in the aftermath of the Thongpal landmine blast that killed 11 CRPF personnel on Saturday.

    Joint operation


    The forces stepped up their joint operation against the Maoists all along the inter-State border of Chhattisgarh and Andhra Pradesh. Four CRPF personnel, who survived the landmine blast, were shifted to Raipur, as their condition became serious. Some of the injured were hospitalised at Jagdalpur.

    The CRPF jawans literally drove into the booby trap laid by the Maoists.

    Assisted by the district police, the jawans were on a combing operation in the jungles of Thongpal after the Maoists set afire five vehicles and equipment engaged in road construction work. They were on their way back when the Maoists triggered the blast, targeting the last truck in the convoy.

    Four jawans killed


    Four CRPF jawans were killed on the spot while seven others died on way to hospital.

    Seven tribal youths were killed by the police in the heavy exchange of fire that lasted till late in the night.

    The landmine blast was attributed to the Darba divisional committee of the CPI (Maoist).

    Two Maoists killed in Orissa gun battle

    Bhubaneswar (IANS): Two Maoist guerrillas were killed in a gun battle with the police in Orissa's Malkangiri district, authorities said on Monday.

    The rebels were spotted carrying a hand grenade in a bag during a security check on Sunday evening on the outskirts of Malkangiri, 620 km from State capital Bhubaneswar.

    Deputy Inspector General of Police Sanjeeb Kumar Panda told IANS the two guerrillas escaped into a nearby forest where they were shot dead.

    He said two 9 mm pistols were also seized.

    Police suspect the rebels planned to attack policemen in the wake of a two day bandh call they have given in five states, including Orissa from Monday.

    Maoists trigger landmine blast in Jharkhand on first day of bandh, no casualties
    22 Jun 2009, 1115 hrs IST, PTI



    JAMSHEDPUR: The CPI (Maoist) triggered a landmine blast at Baramara in Ghatsila sub-division of Jharkhand on Monday, the first day of the 48-hour bandh by the outfit in five states but there was no casualty or damage.

    East Singhbhum superintendent of police Navin Kumar Singh, who rushed to the spot, said the Maoists had targeted an anti-landmine vehicle and were unable to cause any major damage to it.

    A combing operation has been launched in the area, adjacent to West Midnapore district, in which Lalgarh is located, to flush out the extremists from there, Singh said.

    Stringent security measures have been taken up by the East Singhbhum district and the police there were alerted, particularly in Ghatsila, due to its proximity to Lalgarh.

    The Maoist outfit has called the bandh to protest against the combined security forces operation at Lalgarh.

    Centre declares Maoists a terrorist organization

    Centre declares Maoists a terrorist organization

    22 Jun 2009, 1620 hrs IST, PTI


    NEW DELHI: The Centre on Monday banned the CPI (Maoist) under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, calling it a terrorist organization.

    Home ministry sources said the decision was taken at a high-level meeting.

    "The decision has been taken to ban CPI (Maoist) under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act as a terrorist organisation," they said.

    CPI (Maoist), which is the main Naxal group in the country, has been bracketed with 34 other organizations including LeT and SIMI who are in the list of banned outfits.

    West Bengal's ruling Left Front on Monday said it was against banning the CPI (Maoist) and will counter such outfits politically, days after chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee stated that his government will give a serious thought to proscribing the Naxals.

    "We have decided that such outfits, which follow misguided politics, cannot be countered by banning them. It is important to counter the activities of these outfits politically," Left Front chairman Biman Bose said.

    It took them THIS long to declare them a terrorist group? Were these people waiting for a change of heart or some heavenly intervention of some third kind while these people were busy killing cops left and right while looting and pillaging AND having links with terrorists organisations all this time?

    No shit pakistan manages to infect us with terrorist, no one here even knows the definition in the first place.

    India is one of the foremost countries which has done land redistribution from the feudal landlords to the poor and needy people. These maoist communists are hopeless scum who are supported by communists from across the border to create internal security problems for India. Recently, links between LeT and Maoists has been unearthed. So, its no more about fighting about the land rights of people, it is all about the terrorism backed by foreign powers. Now they are officially declared as a terrorist organization.

    Maoism has roots in retardation, you can see Maoists for answer to upcoming "WHY" from you.

    Also, how about this for a solution? India declares them as a terrorist organisation (oops, done that) and start killing these f**ers left and right (oh wait, doing that at the moment). That seems to be solving the problem just fine. How about that? Do you like that solution? No? Do we care?*

    Maoists are indeed working as proxies at the hand of foreign powers and they have increased thier activities after Nepali Maoists came in power but the only problem in finishing them that they would use civilians as human shield which they are indeed doing .

    They are not fighting because of Land distribution , Maoists have lost thier real cause thats why 2 weeks back Senior Maoist leader surrendered in Andhra Pradesh .

    Maoists blast mobile phone tower, community centre in Bihar
    23 Jun 2009, 1150 hrs IST, PTI


    GAYA/AURANGABAD: Maoists blasted a tower of a private telephone service provider and a community centre in Bihar during their 48-hour bandh in five states to protest the police action at Lalgarh.

    Scores of CPI(Maoist) ultras swooped on Jhikatia village in Aurangabad district just past midnight and set off dynamites to blow up the community centre building, police said on Tuesday.

    However, no one was injured as nobody was present at the building when the Maoists triggered the blast.

    Maoists blew up the tower of a private telephone company at Kharasi village in extremist-affected Gaya district, also around midnight. The tower was badly damaged, police said.

    The place is situated close to Jharkhand border. Life in Bihar remained largely unaffected by the Maoist bandh barring Barachatti sub-division of Gaya district, where shops and business establishments were closed and traffic including on the 100 km stretch of Grand Trunk road (NH-2) is very thin.

    Illegal opium trade could be funding Maoists
    22 Jun 2009, 2311 hrs IST, Pradeep Thakur, TNN


    NEW DELHI: The government seems to be drawing a parallel between rising acreage of illegal opium cultivation and the mounting terror of Red ultras — both now spread across a dozen-odd states. Sporadic reports, coinciding with anti-narcotics operations, suggest that part of the proceeds from the illicit trade goes into funding of Maoist insurgency.

    Weeks before the Red ultras called for a bandh in five states to protest against the ongoing crackdown by paramilitary forces, the Director General Central Economic Intelligence Bureau (DGCEIB) had written to all chief secretaries and heads of anti-narcotics agencies and departments concerned urging them to initiate steps to eradicate cultivation of illicit opium that has now spread over 10 states.

    The Centre had provided satellite images and shared other inputs pinpointing areas where opium crop was grown on large tracts running into thousands of hectares.

    The government had asked the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), under the home ministry, to provide coordinates such states — West Bengal, Jharkhand, Bihar, Orissa and Karnataka.

    The areas in the first four states where illicit opium cultivation has been reported are wracked by Maoist insurgency. Security agencies don't rule out the fact that Maoists are not only benefiting from the illicit trade but in many parts the crop is being cultivated under their supervision.

    The Central Bureau of Narcotics (CBN), under the department of revenue in the finance ministry which oversees legitimate cultivation of opium in the country, has been asked to provide coordinates for five hill states of Himachal Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh, J&K, Uttarakhand and Manipur.

    Last week, CBN, excise officials and state police were involved in an operation to destroy illicit cultivation of opium poppy on 1,100 hectares in Pulwama district in J&K. Just before the J&K action, officials had destroyed illicit crop on 600 hectares in similar clean-up operations in Himachal Pradesh.

    Both the J&K and Himachal crops were enough to produce several tonnes of Afghan-variety heroin worth millions of dollars in the European market. The wide cultivation is believed to have now spread across six districts in the state reflecting badly on the government's anti-narcotics checks.

    Agencies had earlier carried out operations in West Bengal, Bihar, Arunachal Pradesh among other states and destroyed crops over thousands of hectares. In West Bengal's Midnapore and Nadia districts, CBN had destroyed crops over 6,500 hectares in 2007.

    Maoists attack court premises, free 'commander'
    23 Jun 2009, 1556 hrs IST, PTI



    LAKHISARAI (BIHAR): A senior government official and two security personnel were injured when armed Maoists attacked the civil court premises and freed heir 'commander' Babulal Besra here during their two-day bandh called to protest police action in Lalgarh.

    Over 50 ultras, armed with sophisticated weapons, raided the court premises, broke open the lock-up and freed Besra, who hails from Giridih in Jharkhand, district magistrate P K Jha said.

    They later attacked a police posse that tried to block their way and looted a carbine and two rifles from the policemen, who were outnumbered by the Maoist guerrillas, before escaping, he said.

    Deputy development commissioner (Lakhisarai) Rajiv Ranjan sustained minor injuries when chunks of wood flying from the smashed window of his room hit him, the DM said.

    Two constables, who suffered splinter injuries, were rushed to the government hospital here for treatment, Jha said.

    Meanwhile, the Maoists also blasted a tower of a private telephone service provider in Gaya and a community centre in Aurangabad.
