    India: 'Maoist' landmine attacks kill three policemen

    At least three policemen have been killed and six others injured in two separate attacks by suspected Maoist rebels in India's Chhattisgarh state.

    The men were killed when their vehicles were hit by landmines in the adjoining Dantewada and Bijapur districts.

    Maoists, who are active in the region, say they are fighting for the rights of tribals and landless poor.

    One of the attacks targeted a police unit guarding a road construction site, officials said.

    The road in Dantewada is being built with central government funds but because of the frequent attacks by the Maoists, the construction crews have "abandoned many of these development projects", district collector Om Prakash Choudhury said.

    The areas where the Maoists are most active are some of the least developed in the country and in desperate need of infrastructure.

    In rebel-dominated Bijapur district, rights activist said last month that police shot and killed 17 "innocent villagers" claiming they were Maoists.

    India's prime minister has described the Maoist insurgency as the country's biggest internal security challenge.

    Rising Maoists Insurgency in India p2/6



    India is divided in many ways: by caste, religion, language, and region. But recently it has become to look as though the most visible divide in the days ahead will be marked by the Maoists movement, which according to media reports, has spread to nearly 40% of the country’s geographical area and is a major political force in poor tribal states such as Chhattisgarh, Jharkand and Orissa. Naxalites control 92000 square kilometers of the country, and the “red corridor” runs along some of India’s poorest parts and through areas inhabited mainly by tribal peoples, according to the media sources. Considering this, analysts have suggested that the army should take over security in some of the Maoists affected regions before it spills over other regions.

    Didnt realize India was infested with so much insurgency issues. On top of everything else they have to cope with this? Maybe for the sake of peace they should divide India up so all can live peacefully. Im sure our Sikh friends would love their own state too.... Let us have a prayer for peace in our neighbors backyard.

    Ulfa men abduct, murder village guard

    Jorhat, Aug 9: Three armed Ulfa (anti-talks faction) militants abducted a village defence party naik ' Michael Purti ' from no. 5 Bakupukhuri village in Sivasagar district last night and shot him dead suspecting him to be a police informer.

    Police said Purti's bullet-riddled body was found inside a tea garden about 500 metres from his house this morning. His hands were bound. Four bullets were fired at him from an AK-series rifle; the police have recovered the empty shells from the vicinity.

    The murder comes after suspected Ulfa militants detonated an IED targeting a CRPF team in Goalpara district on July 31 while newly appointed Ulfa chairman ' Abhijeet Asom ' in his first address pledged to "protect" Assam and its interests.

    The area where Purti's body was found is close to Lalmati of Nagaland where an encounter between security forces and Ulfa cadres had taken place in May this year. An injured militant was arrested and a landmine was recovered in that incident.

    Sivasagar additional SP (headquarters) L. Doungel, told The Telegraph that the Ulfa men who carried out the killing had probably come from the neighbouring Mon district of Nagaland.
    The ASP said the militants had laid a trap for the joint team, comprising the police, CRPF and army personnel, who went to the site where the body of the VDP naik lay but, the team had a providential escape from an IED blast triggered by the militants near the site of the body.
    Officer-in-charge of Mathurapur police station, N.K. Saikia, was part of the team. He said the team of about 50 men approached the site on foot while exercising extreme caution, suspecting an ambush by the militants.

    About 30 metres away from the body, an IED exploded near an electric pole with a deafening sound, he said.

    There would have been heavy casualties if the team members had been another few metres closer, Saikia said.

    Combing operations were launched in the entire area but no bombs were recovered and the militants had slipped away. The anti-talks faction has stepped up its acts of sabotage in the run-up to Independence Day.

    On July 31, Ulfa militants had triggered a blast at Bamunghopa in Goalpara district in lower Assam leading to the death of one army jawan and injuring six others.
    The new Ulfa chairman, in his address, said Indian security forces had "murdered" 13,000 Assamese youths in the name of suppressing Ulfa's freedom movement.
    "The armed wing of my organisation has the responsibility of defending the interests of Assam and the Assamese," Asom said.

    He said the armed cadres would use any means in self-defence according to international norms. The chairman cautioned people against indulging in "anti-Assam activities".
    He also repeated the outfit's demand for conducting plebiscite over the issue of Assam's sovereignty and appealed to everyone to use the surname Asom or Okhom in order to discard links to the Indian caste system.

    A day after the Paresh Barua faction of Ulfa removed Arabinda Rajkhowa from the post of "chairman" of the outfit, the pro-talks faction of the outfit held an emergency central meeting at Barama in Baksa district with several central leaders.

    , including Arbinda Rajkhowa, Raju Baruah, Sashadhar Choudhury, Mithinga Daimary and Pranatee Deka were present. The meeting was held far away from the glaring eyes of media persons.

    MHA admits to Maoist influence in 6 districts in Delhi

    While there has been no incident of violence by the Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist) in Delhi, the Union Home Ministry has admitted that this year they have assessed influence of front organisations of Maoists in its six districts. "The influence of Maoists in areas is assessed on the basis of both overground activities by front organisations and violent activities by underground cadres," Minister of State for Home Jitendra Singh told the Rajya Sabha (Upper House of the Parliament) in a written reply on August 8. The Home Ministry has also said the CPI-Maoist operates in Delhi through the city committee of the outfit and that Left-wing extremist groups, such as CPI (ML) New Democracy and CPI (ML) Liberation, are active in the Capital. "Besides, front organisations of the CPI (Maoist) like Revolutionary Democratic Front, Committee for the Release of Political Prisoners, People's Democratic Front of India, and Democratic Students Union are active in Delhi," the ministry has said.

    MHA details reveal that the number of Districts reporting any sort of Maoist violence or having Maoist influence has reduced to 173 this year, as on June 30. Last year 203 districts in the country had reported Maoist violence, while 208 districts were affected by rebel violence in 2009. "It is clarified that around 26 districts of India account for nearly 80 per cent of the total Maoist violence. The total number of 'violence affected' districts has to be viewed in this overall context," the minister told the upper house. MHA figures shows the Maoists have killed 82 Security Force personnel till June 30 this year, compared to 142 in 2009. Also, there have been 864 incidents of Maoist violence in the first six months of this year, compared to a total of 1764 incidents last year. A total of 244 people, including Security Forces, have lost their lives at the hands of Maoists this year, while 49 Maoists have been shot dead by Security Forces in 2012. Bihar has emerged as the biggest problem for the security establishment on the Maoist front. 30 out of the 38 districts in Bihar have reported Maoist violence this year, making it the state with the maximum Districts affected by Left-wing Extremism.

    i agree it is a worrying issue --- our neighbour has a volatile situation next to our nation. They are unable to control this and have a policy called "bury your head in the sand" They have an obsessive attitude when commenting about our nation but ignore this terrible issue

    Flaws in India’s Strategy to Counter the Maoist Insurgency



    In 2009, Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh declared, "Left-wing extremism poses the gravest internal security threat to India." He was right. India's long-running Maoist insurgency has developed into one of the country's most serious security challenge of the past 50 years. Starting as a local political group in the 1960s, the Maoists are now a formidable wider movement with vastly improved military capability, an effective chain of command, and brutal and repressive personnel known to commit abuses and atrocities. Data from the Indian Home Ministry shows that this once near moribund struggle has resurrected itself and has now spread to 182 out of a total of 593 districts in India. Since 2008, over 3000 people have been killed due to this conflict. After decades of Maoist insurgency and unrest, the police and paramilitary forces, entrenched in counter-insurgency operations, have come to realize the critical importance of training, astute leadership and need for advanced skills. There is also a need to adopt a more humane approach by projecting soft power, rather than a sledge hammer approach, which has traditionally underpinned India’s approach to combating insurgencies. While there is growing recognition at the national level that this problem requires deft political handling, which is where the real solution lies, little has happened.

    The Indian government would benefit from implementing the recommendations outlined in a report entitled “Development Challenges in Extremist Affected Areas”, published by an expert committee set up to identify the underlying causes of the militant resurgence of this once low-key socialist movement. This committee was instituted by the Planning Commission of India at the request of the Union Government in May 2006. It was tasked to identify the causes contributing to widespread unrest and discontent in India’s tribal regions. A particularly poignant point the report makes is the fact that this resurgence, or the Maoist uprising, is a result of deprivation, inequality, failure of the state to ensure all segments of society are able to enjoy their basic entitlements and needs, safeguarded by the Constitution and other legislation. The final report was submitted in March 2008 and contained a comprehensive study and analysis of the problem. The Commission’s recommendations are based on three basic principles:

    To launch programmes on a scale equal to the dimensions of the problem;
    To ensure these programmes have a strong impact in the immediate future and serve to close the gap between promise and performance;
    To undertake new initiatives and experiments that can change the system of failure and frustration that dominates and weakens our society.

    This report is an outstanding piece of work done by some of India’s finest minds and greatest citizens. With the analysis already present, the need of the hour is practical and urgent action on the ground. So far little has happened in the implementation of the recommendations.

    From my own experience in India's military, which included many years of active service in counter-insurgency operations, it is clear that the use of random and reckless violence will invariably back-fire, as it tends to sustain the insurgency, just as it has in other parts of India where the government continues to combat insurgencies over decades. In most cases such conflicts are unwinnable, each side inflicting increasing levels of violence, creating a vitiated environment of hate and a vicious cycle of vendetta and revenge, with civilians bearing the brunt. Often these parts of India have seen protracted socio-economic deprivation, intergenerational poverty and a deep sense of injustice. This is particularly true given the fact that the problem of left-wing extremism and the question of social justice are essentially entwined in India. Unfortunately, this form of militancy has all along been sustained by India’s wide and deep rooted inequality with conflict over land ownership, struggles for the rights over mineral and forest wealth, poverty, and denial of justice and human dignity, which plays a pivotal role in alienating a large segment of the working class poor. Maoist stronghold districts often reflect the harsh reality of the wider local region, which is typically affected by either exploitation of peasantry, struggles over mineral wealth, or denial of rights over forest land to the local tribal population. As so aptly described in his book Poverty Amid Plenty in the New India, Dr. Atul Kohli, my professor at Princeton University, depicts encroachment of tribal land held as common property to be a primary stimulant for resistance movements.

    Historically, the Maoists have taken advantage of this popular discontent to expand their strongholds and to secure influence over a large geographical area, known locally as the “Red Corridor”. This stretch of land, spanning 92,000 square kilometres, is home to concentrated tribal pockets and some of the poorest, underdeveloped and oppressed regions of India. The Red Corridor in reality epitomizes socio-economic deprivation and exploitation at its worst. While the region is rich in mineral resources like coal and iron ore deposits, natural gas and forest wealth, the State has failed to ensure for the local population access to basic services, such as education, health, water and sanitation, employment and human development in general. This failure has resulted in the ready embrace of Maoist ideology by the local populace. Displacement of the local population due to large scale projects, and the failure of the law and order machinery to prevent regular exploitation of the poor by local landowners, traders, a section of police and corrupt government officials have ensured complete estrangement and lack of trust in the government. Unfortunately what is increasingly visible in the Maoist affected areas is the convergence of crime, business and politics.

    The resurgence of ultra-left militancy, after it had lost momentum and relevance decades ago, can also be linked to the advent of neo-liberal policies in India. Since 1980 India’s political economy took a new direction, but it failed to include India’s numerous excluded groups in the polity and the economy. Inequality was further aggravated by the sale of tribal land, mineral and resource rich, to corporations that were then seen to exploit local populations. When the system of governance was unable or unwilling to deliver needed services, the local populace turned towards illegal tactics which held the appeal of providing results in a more direct, immediate and localized manner. The popularity of Maoism was thus a natural consequence, continues to be an ever growing threat that could have grave socio-economic consequences for India, and could seriously undermine India’s economic progress.

    The government cannot afford to wait for stability before development can happen. Its modus-operandi needs to combine development with law and order, along with active engagement of all stake holders from the affected communities themselves, such as tribal elders, youth groups and women’s groups. A vital amount of support for the Maoist movement in India is derived from disadvantaged adivasis (tribals) and dalits (lower classes). These two groups form the core of the most disenfranchised and subjugated peoples in India, and are routinely kept out of any development dividend. Sadly, in India’s social ladder these groups are still heavily discriminated against in several parts of the country. Human development indicators for these groups showcase the truly terrible and pathetic situation they find themselves in. There is wide-spread hunger and malnutrition in the tribal areas. In fact, there are more malnourished children in India than all of Sub-Saharan Africa, which Prime Minister Singh has called a national shame .

    The state police in most of the Maoist strongholds remain weakened by a skills crisis, weak leadership and shortage of manpower to counter guerrilla tactics. The civil servants deployed in these areas are not motivated and should be far more capable and better trained in order to deliver the important services these communities need. The security forces should be better trained at winning “hearts and minds,” and this requires enlightened and smarter leadership within their rank and file, as well as a highly sensitised and competent civil service to back it. In addition, simultaneous efforts at improving physical and social infrastructure throughout the country, combined with poverty alleviation programs, need to be put in place. There is also a need to offer an olive branch of reconciliation to the outlawed ultra-left groups and to establish mechanisms for dialogue and conflict resolution. In addition, the security forces conducting counter-insurgency must be better educated on human rights, with a special emphasis on scrupulous, legal methods of counter-insurgency warfare. A culture of respect and human rights must engender the ethos of all law enforcement agencies throughout the country with "zero tolerance" for impunity. It is also evident that large numbers of young boys and girls have been drawn into the conflict, as child soldiers. This is a very troubling development. Besides moral reasons, there are strong strategic arguments for not using child soldiers. Once such conflicts end, these children who may have turned into young adults over time will need to be demobilized and reintegrated into their communities. And experts say the prospects for a lasting peace are hurt by large populations of psychologically scarred children and young adults going back to civilian life. These parts of India risk long-term instability as generations of youth are sucked into other insurgencies or turn to crime. Left unchecked, it augurs like a bad omen (which could lead to civil strife), increasingly uses up blood and treasure, and keeps the situation in parts of the country highly volatile, all to the detriment of India’s future growth and prosperity.

    The government could start by establishing a panel to oversee the recommendations of the Expert Committee. This panel must be all inclusive, staffed by members of parliament hailing from the affected districts, policy makers, opinion leaders, the private sector, intelligence and security officials, as well as academics. Land rights for the dalit and adivasi people through suitable parliamentary decree must be high on the agenda. It is very important to focus on women and child health and development initiatives, as well as education. It is tragic to see the large numbers of educational and health facilities targeted in this conflict, often by the Maoists themselves. These must be seen as sacred and inviolable. Improving education and child health actually provides the government with some manoeuvring space to demonstrate its commitment to people living in the Red Corridor, as well as some quick wins. For this to happen, healthcare access, access to nutritious food and education facilities will have to improve dramatically. This will be dependent on a large financial commitment from the government with robust oversight mechanisms in place. Assistance from national institutions like the Indian Red Cross, with its vast network of volunteers and as an auxiliary to the Government of India, guided by its fundamental principles of independence, neutrality and humanity, could even be a broker of confidence building between the various parties.

    The proposed solution of development is a basic mandate of the Government. Like other developing countries, the Government of India is still in the process of uniformly delivering (or failing to deliver) on this mandate. The Maoist spectre should therefore act as a catalyst for a paradigm shift in the focus of the government from a sole concentration on growth to a realization that equitable regional distribution is a prerequisite for the attainment of India’s global potential. As the expert committee report states, the alternative is not blind repression or capitulation to lawlessness; it is the realization and acceptance of common opportunities for all within a single society. Violence cannot build a better society. The longer this crisis persists, the more likely it will become intractable. The ball is in the government’s court.

    Forces refuse to help Naxal victim

    A remote village in Chhattisgarh witnessed a heartening incident of a Naxal victim’s brother being forced to turn his motorcycle into a bier to carry the body to the local police station from the nearby jungle, where the kin was killed, after the forces allegedly refused to accompany him fearing attack by Maoists, official reports reaching here on Thursday said.
    Rup Singh Dhrub tied the body of his brother Rahman (42), killed by Naxals on August 14 by slitting his throat, in the wooden planks and fixed them in the back of his bike to carry the mortal remains from Jholaraw jungles to Sobha police station, in Gariabandh district to help police conduct post-mortem on it.

    The body was handed over to Rup Singh by the police after the post-mortem for performing last rites.

    “The post-mortem was conducted in Sobha police station. Rup Singh carried the body to his village of Cholaram to perform the last rites on August 14,” a senior district police officer said, privately confiding that the police was not willing to recover the body from Jholaraw jungle fearing that the ultras might have laid a trap for them there.

    The incident, however, triggered a public outrage with people here demanding action against the police officers concerned for having failed to come to the rescue of the deceased’s family members.

    However, Nitin Upadhyaya, inspector-in-charge of Sobha police station claimed that by the time the police learnt about the killing, the body was already retrieved by the victim’s brother.

    Rahman Singh Dhrub, who was serving as a teacher in the nearby Gorgaon primary school, was abducted by a group of armed guerrillas from his home on August 7 for allowing forces to spend a night in his school last month.

    Naxal violence claimed maximum lives this year: Govt


    NEW DELHI: Naxal violence claimed maximum lives this year as compared to terrorist and insurgency incidents in Jammu and Kashmir and the North East, the government on Tuesday told Parliament.

    Till July this year, Left Wing Extremism (LWE) claimed the lives of 183 civilians and 84 security forces personnel while the corresponding figures for Jammu and Kashmir stood at 7 and 6 respectively and in the North East it was reported as 49 and 7 lives for the same period.

    Minister of State for Home Affairs Jitendra Singh gave this information in a written reply in Lok Sabha today. The maximum violent incidents were reported in naxal-affected areas (911) while in Jammu and Kashmir 133 incidents were reported and in the NE a total of 666 incidents were recorded during the same period.

    Naxal violence, according to the reply, had claimed a total of 606 lives (464 civilians and 142 security personnel) during 2011.

    The casualty figures for last year were again much higher in the Naxal violence affected areas as compared to terror and insurgency related deaths in Jammu and Kashmir and the North East.

    While 64 people were killed (31 civilians and 33 security personnel) during last year in J and K, 102 people (70 civilians and 32 security personnel) where killed in North East during the same period

    these insecurities our entire neighbourhood is infested with are preventing the development. In fact that is one thing that Chinese are lucky that they have relative security.

    I have often thought about investing in Pakistan for example and I am sure some Indians have as well about investing India but who wants to risk setting up in the current environment where your investment can go down the tubes so easily

    Seven killed in Assam on way home from relief camp
    TNN | Aug 26, 2012, 12.56AM

    The chilling message from each case of bloodshed in Assam after the ethnic violence between Muslims and Bodo tribals is ‘Don’t try to go back to your homes’.

    GUWAHATI: Despite deployment of additional soldiers and policemen, promises by the government and top political and administrative brass parachuting in, violence in Assam is refusing to ebb. On Saturday, seven people were killed, taking the number of fatalities in the ethnic conflict, which began on July 20, to 86.

    Officials said around 6pm, miscreants ambushed and killed five Bengali-speaking Muslims who were returning home from a relief camp in Chirang district under the Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC). The victims, who spent weeks at the Amguri relief shelter close to the Bhutan border, were going to their village at Choudhurypara in Bijni, 27 km from their camp, in two vehicles.

    Earlier, the state government had offered security cover to riot victims who wanted to return home. But the Amguri victims apparently did not have any escort. At the moment, more than 2lakh people uprooted in the Bodo-Muslim violence are living in relief camps.

    State home secretary GD Tripathi said, "The bodies of the victims bore cut marks and were found at Mongoloia Bazar in Chirang. We do not rule out the involvement of militants in the killings." On July 24, miscreants had killed three people at the same place. As with the previous attacks, the assailants will probably never be identified or caught.

    The chilling message from each case of bloodshed in Assam after the ethnic violence between Muslims and Bodo tribals is 'Don't try to go back to your homes'.

    At Jonai in Dhemaji district of upper Assam, so far unaffected by violence, the bodies of two Bengali-speaking Muslims were found.

    The two had been kidnapped by unidentified persons on Friday.

    'Barbaric act'

    BTC chief executive member Hagrama Mohilary strongly condemned the killings in Chirang.

    "This is a barbaric act. We have just started rehabilitation and people have every right to return home." The new bout of violence is seen as a failure on the part of the state police to rein in troublemakers. A top security source said police could restore order only if it took strong action against law-breakers.

    On Friday, police had arrested Bodoland People's Front MLA Pradeep Brahma for his alleged involvement in rioting. The legislator is currently in 14 days' judicial custody.

    ABMSU threatens blockade

    The All Bodoland Minority Students' Union on Saturday threatened to stage protest by blocking highways and trains if the administration fails to arrest the culprits involved in the killing of Bengali-speaking Muslims in the state within next 24 hours.

    1 killed, 12 injured in Assam grenade attack:

    A Bomb Blast occured in the Paltan Bazar (Market) area adjoining the Paltan Bazar (Market) Police Station in Guwahati. The terror attack targeting CRPF claimed 1 life and left 12 injured.

    A Bomb Blast occured at 7:45 PM IST today in the Paltan Bazar(Market) area adjoining the Paltan Bazar(Market) Police Station in Guwahati. The terror attack targetting CRPF claimed 1 life and left 12 injured.

    While none of the terror outfits have claimed responsibility and culprits at large, it has upset the harmony in Guwahati which is already a zone of ethinic violence and was celebrating the birth anniversary of the legendary Assamese Musician Bhupen Hazarika on the day of the blast.

    Bhawani Singh, a CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) trooper is among the dead apart from 3 more troopers who are seriously injured. 9 civilians have also been reported to be injured as a result of the terror attack which used an IED device.

    Police are suspecting the terrorist outfit ULFA behind the attack as there was a warning issued by them against the state for harbouring the illegal Bangladeshi Muslim immigrants and another attack recently in the Tinsukhia District.
