Exclamation Chhattisgarh: 55 killed in Naxal bloodbath

Chhattisgarh: 55 killed in Naxal bloodbath

In the biggest ever strike by Maoists on security forces in Chhattisgarh, at least 55 police personnel were killed and 11 injured today when more than 300 heavily armed rebels stormed a police station in the Bastar region.

The naxalites, led by the military wing of the banned Communist Party of India-Maoist attacked Rani Bodli police outpost, 525 km from Raipur, in the wee hours of Thursday, police sources told PTI on phone from Bijapur district.

"There was fierce fighting by both sides, but when the security forces ran out of ammunition, the rebels lobbed grenades and petrol bombs on the barracks. The policemen were forced to come out from the shelter after it caught fire, and were subsequently killed in firing by the Naxalites," a source said.

Sixteen Chhattisgarh Armed Force jawans and 39 special police officers were killed, while four CAF jawans and seven officers were injured in the incident. Nine other policemen who were at the outpost escaped without any injuries.

The Naxalites looted 48 weapons from the security forces, including rifles and a two-inch mortar, the sources said.

This was the biggest attack by the rebels in Chhattisgarh since the state was formed on November 1, 2000. The killing of 55 security personnel has put the state government in an embarrassing position.



After the incident, state police officers sought tougher steps by the government to deal with the Naxalite menace. Talking to PTI, several senior police officers suggested a total overhaul of the state government's policy for dealing with Naxalites and said the Maoists were no longer 'a local force.'

"The Naxalites are not a local militia. They are working more on the line of a military wing of any well trained organisation. Keeping this in mind, police and the state government need to change their strategy," one officer said.

The officers felt the state government should stop experiments on the Naxal issue and said people, who had a fair idea about the style of functioning of the rebels, should be included in anti-Maoist operations and field duty in insurgency-hit areas.

In the past 22 months, the state had witnessed as many as 1,187 incidents of violence related to Naxalites, in which at least 676 people were killed, official reports said.

During 2005-06, a total of 243 civilians, 43 Naxalites and 65 security personnel were killed while at least 226 civilians, 76 Naxalites and 23 security personnel were killed this fiscal up to February 4, the reports said.

Similarly, in 2005-06, a total of 639 violent incidents occurred whereas 548 such incidents were recorded up to February 4 in 2006-07.

Penchow...India don't need any outsiders as enemy when we have home grown terrorists. Last year they ambushed jail and got their men out. And now killed these many cops. In the news they said, some cops were burnt, some were killed cruely by axes.

Who says only Terrorists (Muslims...pun intended) are cruel?
These basterds must be eliminated from India.

Re: Chhattisgarh: 55 killed in Naxal bloodbath

Indian media does a piss poor job of covering such incidents. I tried to read articles on this as well as the Nandigram incident..

None of the newspapers give a balanced picture. It is totally lopsided reporting...as though govt is always good and the rioters are bad.

On the Nandigram incident, I cant understand why the farmers were so against the Zoning regulations...was the terms not acceptable?

In all of this, the MEDIA is really the real culprit.

Re: Chhattisgarh: 55 killed in Naxal bloodbath

Well there is a problem... If you give ammunition to police in Naxal area they will raid the police station and take hold of that... If you dont provide them then they will kill the police...What should police do? Bloody naxals... they are not allowing police to enjoy their bribes and all...and yeah be ready for imposing president rule in Chattisgarh from left parties... It seems this is an opportunity for them to divert attention from genocide they are doing in Nandigram. Just look at the interviews these commie bastards are giving...sick........

Re: Chhattisgarh: 55 killed in Naxal bloodbath

This one's a daring raid by the Naxals. Gives a chilling spectre of their potential ferocity. Worse than the news often heard from Nepal.

Re: Chhattisgarh: 55 killed in Naxal bloodbath

Naxals cannot thrive without local support.

First of all government needs to seriously address issues which locals face and thus support Naxals. What do the Naxals want? Short of seccession from the Republic of India, the government should try to address all their concerns and grievances.

If the Naxals dont agree to and continue their terror and dont come to negotiations, then offcourse, send in the Indian Army and kill every woman and man in the Naxal outfit ruthlessly. Dont even spare a child. It sounds extremely harsh and cold hearted, but its time the locals are shown the brutally shot bodies of Naxals. The other Naxals in other regions need to see this too.

Bingo! Give the man a cigar.

The Naxals survive on the patronage of the powers that be. This is the biggest problem. The supposed Naxals themselves are a bunch of illiterate anghoota chap. Like in the US, any political party that espouses violence should not only be barred, but it's leaders should be put in jail for sedition and terrorism.

For example, CPI (M). Here is a party that supports the violent overthrow of government and is yet allowed to be in power. I doubt anything serious will be done about this. The the kangaroo party is in power with the support of the left parties.

I say bitch a little and move on bhai log. There is more where this came from, and our little shit hole, our Bharat matta, has yet more bleeding to do.

Re: Chhattisgarh: 55 killed in Naxal bloodbath

I got a strong feeling that all the 'raids' in which arms and ammunition used to get 'stolen' were put ons, and local policemen must have been getting paid for them---much like armymen selling arms etc.. to terrorists and then 'covering' the deeds by setting fire to their 'depots'!
Its good to know the police got what they deserved!
Now they'll think twice before selling arms and ammo. to these guys.

Angry Re: Chhattisgarh: 55 killed in Naxal bloodbath

Where are all those 'human rights activists', pinko-liberal, so-called "intellectuals" crapolas like Shabana Azmi, Javed Akhtar, A-hole-dhati Roy, teesta setalvad?? Not a word from them! Neither on this issue nor on the Nandigram issue? When the left indulges in voilence, its justified. But something like this happens in a BJP-ruled state, all hell breaks loose! F*cking lefties. They are nothing but a bunch of Hypocrites!

Its bloody high time the central govt. forms a central paramilitary force to tackle naxal problem. Or better still make CRPF or BSF to form extra battalions just to tackle this problem. The states affected by naxalism can bear the expenses with some auxillary funding from centre. Ask the Indian Army to train these forces in counter insurgency, use expertise gained by various state police special units like AP Police's Greyhounds unit. Finally, give this new force a free hand to operate across state borders. Then, you will see these f*cking naxals run for their pathetic coward lives!

Quote:
Wither India's Naxalites?
by Col. Rahul K. Bhonsle
Just a year or two ago, the danger of a red corridor from Kathmandu to Kanyakumari spanning central India was considered a distinct possibility. The Maoists in Nepal have joined parliamentary democracy with full fanfare. There is now no going back for them. Though the Terai region of Nepal continues to be in turmoil, the possibility of the Red Corridor is now increasingly remote. The Naxalists in India continue to carry a punch.
Thus Chattisgarh saw continued militant IED activity with a powerful explosion in Jharaghati, Narayanpur, and Bastar which killed 7 police personnel of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and Special Armed Force (SAF) on 16 January. In another encounter in Chattisgarh in the dense forests of Timarpur in Bastar district the CRPF tracked down and killed three Maoists while two more were killed in another encounter later in the same area. The Timarpur forest area located 520 kms south of Raipur is considered to be infested with Maoists.
The wheel of Naxalism in Chattisgarh seems to have turned a full circle. While surrender is one strategy which is generally used to bring militants who are willing to give up the path of violence back into the main stream, frequently the same is used as a ploy by security forces to add numbers to the overall campaign. There were many instances in Kashmir, when even the Army considered as the most credible counter militant force in India was alleged to have manipulated surrenders and later had to retract. In the instant case, judicial custody was granted to only 43 of the 79 surrendered indicating a clear inflation of 36 by the police.

On the other hand in an encounter, in Andhra Pradesh (AP), the AP police stumbled on a Naxal hide out in Kotapalli forest in Khammam district on the AP Chattisgarh border. Two Naxalite were killed on the spot. Khamman district has also seen a large number of surrenders of Naxalite with over 23 militants capitulating over the past few weeks. Andhra Pradesh has seen a number of counter terrorist successes over the years as the state police have gained an upper hand through effective employment of surveillance and patrolling as well as creation of a special force, the Greyhound. The Greyhound has specialized in tracking and apprehending terrorists particularly in the forested areas of the state. However the AP Chattisgarh-Maharashtra and Orissa border areas continue to be a major hide out for the Naxalite over the years.

The emergence of an institutionalized support network of the Maoists was evident with an arms supplier, apprehended from Khammam district in AP during the month. Arms reportedly from Nepal were being smuggled in a vehicle when it was apprehended in Nagpur in December. Subsequent interrogation led to the arrest of the individual from Khammam. The reach of Naxalite in Madhya Pradesh was also evident with apprehension of five suspected militants from the Satnami Nagar area of Bhopal, the state capital during the month. A number of weapons parts and literature was secured from the area. These personnel were reported from Andhra and had been working in Bhopal for some time. The apprehension also led to recovery of large quantum of arms and subversive material. Madhya Pradesh has very low level of Naxal militancy with only Balaghat, Mandla and Dindori districts identified as Naxal affected. Sidhi district bordering Uttar Pradesh and Chattisgarh is also proposed to be denoted as Naxal affected. The number of incidents in Madhya Pradesh is also reported to be of minor nature since 1990 at approximately 390.

Large scale felling of trees to the tune of 75,000 was reported in Chattisgarh on the road from Sukma to Dornapal and Konta to Bijapur, allegedly to avoid the advantage of cover to Naxalite who attempt to ambush vehicle convoys moving on the roads. Indiscriminate felling of trees has come up for wide spread condemnation by environmentalists and appears to be the first such reported instance. No report of indiscriminate large scale felling has been received from other insurgency infested areas including Kashmir and the North East.

The Citi group advisory perhaps sums up the threat of Naxalism in India most appropriately. The global financial services company indicated that the Maoist challenge would be one of the key factors which will determine India’s growth paradigm in the coming years. The adverse economic impact of Maoist activities spread in 165 districts, 14 states and 40 percent of the geographic area with 35 percent of the population in India will be greatly felt in some of the key states where industrialization is taking place such as Orissa and Chattisgarh. Orissa is of particular concern as the state has over 33 percent of India’s mineral reserves and large number of projects including multi nationals as Vedanta and Posco who are in the line up for development in the state. Chattisgarh is also a mineral rich area with Rs 13000 Crore ($ 2.95 billon) planned investment in the State. From a security threat to a few years back to investment decelerator today, Naxalism in India appears to have crossed the hump.

Re: Chhattisgarh: 55 killed in Naxal bloodbath

I don't really understand the Naxal issue very much...can someone please shed some light? I am serious..not joking.

- What exactly do these Naxals want? Or is it just a fancy name for goondagiri?
- Do they have any specific ideology?
- Are there any specific names / leaders of these Naxals?
- Are all Naxals organized as one group or is it just separate band of thugs grouped together as Naxalites?

From WIKI:

Quote:

Naxalite or Naxalism is an informal name given to radical, often violent, revolutionary communist groups that were born out of the Sino-Soviet split in the Indian communist movement. Ideologically they belong to various trends of Maoism. Initially the movement had its epicentre in West Bengal. In recent years, they have spread into backward areas of rural central and eastern India, such as Chattisgarh and Andhra Pradesh through the activities of underground groups like the Communist Party of India (Maoist).[1] The CPI(Maoist) and some other Naxal factions are considered terrorists by the Government of India and various state governments in India.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naxalite
Here are some comprehensive links about Naxals from STAP.org :

Left-wing Extremist groups
  1. People's Guerrilla Army
  2. People's War Group
  3. Maoist Communist Centre
  4. Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist)
  5. Communist Party of India (Marxist Leninist) Janashakti
