JEYPORE: The role of police has come under scanner after yesterday’s Naxal attacks at Boipariguda, Ramgiri and Machkund.


Though the ‘Operation Red’ continued for four hours, no police personnel or any Special Operation Group jawan countered them.

Eyewitnesses claimed that after the attacks, the Naxals were found roaming on the streets and celebrated their success by firing in the air before retrieving to their hideouts through Ramgiri and Machkund.

Meanwhile, police have sounded alert in all the police stations in the region and senior police officials have conducted a review meeting to assess the situation
