Govt to launch massive operation against Naxals: DGP

Nagpur, Aug 5 (PTI) Maharashtra Director General of Police (DGP) S S Virk today said the government will launch a joint operation with naxal-affected states to get rid of the menace.

The government will launch a joint operation with Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa and Andhra Pradesh soon to curb the growing Naxalite menace in bordering areas, Virk told media persons after his visit to Naxal-hit region of Gadchiroli.

The DGP hinted that the joint operation would start after the monsoon, as it would be difficult for forces to cope with the jungle terrain during incessant rains.

He, however, refused to discuss the the issue in detail.

To a query about his visit to Naxal-infested region, Virk said he had gone to interact with police personnel fighting against left wing extremism.
