Rajya Sabha

Keeping in view the CPN(Maoists) activities in Nepal and their likely impact on our security, Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB), the Border Guarding Force, has intensified vigil along the Indo-Nepal Border. As per available inputs, there are fraternal and logistic links between Nepalese Maoists and naxalite groups in India. The States bordering Nepal have also been advised to intensify vigil in, and patrolling of, the areas bordering Nepal to prevent ingress of the Maoist elements.

Akhil Bharat Nepal Ekta Samaj (ABNES), a CPN organisation under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967, as amended in 2004. Both Nepal and India have resolved not to permit their respective territories for activities inimical to either country. SSB and State Police have so far arrested 36 CPN(Maoists)/their supporters in the current year mainly from Bihar.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Home Affairs, Shri Sriprakash Jaiswal in a written reply in Rajya Sabha today.
