STORY: In a major success during an anti Maoist operation, police in India’s eastern state of Orissa arrested five persons including three Maoists rebels.
Police have also recovered arms, ammunition and explosives from them.
The three ultras, who were arrested on December 14, were presented in front of the media on Wednesday (December 15) at the Raigarh police station in the state.
“In an anti naxal (Maoist) operation launched in Kalyansinghpur village, we picked up five persons out of which three were hardcore Maoists. One was Raju, one was Sunil and the third one was Sabita. From them we recovered one 9mm pistol along with 20 rounds of ammunitions, two landmines, gelatin sticks explosives and so many other Maoist literatures,” said Soumendra Priyadarshi, Deputy Inspector General of Police.
According to the police two others who were detained are minors and have been sent to a juvenile correction centre.
One 9 mm pistol, live rounds of 9 mm pistol, a country made grenade, detonators, two landmines, gelatin sticks along with Maoist training notes and literatures were seized from ultras, police said.
The Maoists have spread into rural pockets of 20 of India’s 28 states.
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has termed the Maoists as India’s gravest internal security threat.
Initially, the Maoists contended they are fighting for the cause of poor and weaker sections of the society whereas over the past two decades they have turned extremely violent and do not hesitate to kill innocent civilians.
