Shinde to review anti-Naxal operations in nine states

Home minister Sushil Kumar Shinde will take stock of anti-Naxal operations and development initiatives in Maoist-hit states with their chief secretaries and DGPs at a meeting convened here this month-end.

The top civil and police officers of Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Jharkhand, Bihar, West Bengal, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh will attend the meeting that will review the ongoing operations as well as development programmes being implemented there.

As monsoon is coming to an end, Naxals may try to intensify subversive activities and the top officials are likely to chalk out strategy how to deal with them, official sources said.

Shinde is expected to offer all possible help to the states and advise them to step up vigil in sensitive places to maintain peace.

Government recently admitted that the some of the attacks carried out by Naxals in the past were successful due to security forces’ failure to adhere to basic policing tactics.

‘An analysis of recent Naxal attacks disclose that the attacks could succeed mainly due to failure of adherence to basic policing tactics and practices by some of the state police forces,’ minister of state for home RPN Singh had said.
