Even as 5 Maoist terrorists, including 3
women, were killed by the Andhra
Pradesh (AP) police, there is
increased concern that the AP
Government and the Federal Home
Ministry are not taking the fight
On a tip-off from the Chhattisgarh
police, 30 Greyhound commandos
intercepted a terrorist party on its
way to join a massive meeting.
However, such successes born out of
inter-state intelligence sharing,
intelligence network development, and
sustained work with people are
apparently not part of the agenda.
reports to newspapers say that a police request to the
State Government to strengthen the Special
Intelligence Bureau (SIB) six months ago has been
vastly ignored. Unnamed sources say that the Communist
Party of India (Maoist) cadre has murdered 1300
political leaders, policemen, and civilians suspected
of being Government informants. The terrorists have
also perpetrated 6,626 other offences destroying
property worth several million dollars.
