KARKALA, November 14, 2009: The three day intensive combing of the Naxal infested areas in four districts bordering Western Ghats concluded today with the Police chief asserting that the police and the ANF have established domination in the Naxal prone areas.
Addressing a press conference here today Additional Director General of Police Mr. A.R. Infant told that the combing was done with three purposes, firstly to attain domination of government forces, secondly to instill confidence in the people living inside the Naxal infested areas and thirdly to keep in contact with the people. Mr. Infant said all the three objectives have been achieved during the three days of combing.
Mr. Infant said nobody will be allowed to run a parallel government when there was already a democratically elected government and the law and order in force. The Naxalites or Maoists have no place in administration and neither can they try to lead the innocent tribals away from democracy he added.
Mr. Infant said the police and the ANF has put into place a highly professional group of policemen who have participated in the combing operations, these forces are trained to show no mercy against the enemies of democracy and the country be it Maoists or Naxalites.
Inspector General of Police (Western Range) Gopal Hosur speaking on the occasion stated that the combing had been taken up jointly by the police and the ANF with inputs from local people.
He said the exercise had proved that police can reach anywhere and no law breaker was safe when it comes to maintenance of law and order. He said the police are well acclimatized with the terrain of the Naxal prone areas and they can now march into the area with least difficulty. The Police have also talked to the people and assured them of their help in the hour of need. They have appealed to them to give their support the law and order machinery in their areas.
The police chiefs like A.R. Infant, Mr. Hosur, ANF chief Mr. Amrit Pal, SPs of Dakshina Kannada Dr. A.S. Rao, M.N. Nagaraj of Chikmagalur and Raman Gupta of Uttara Kannada have jointly asserted that they will not allow anti democratic forces to take control of innocent tribals.
Mr. Hosur said some people who call themselves intellectuals have been supporting the Maoists and Naxalites indirectly which was nothing but treason against democracy, in right time we will move against those who give direct and indirect support to the Maoists and Naxalites.
According to the Chief of the ANF Mr. Amrit Pal the number of Naxalites operating in the Western Ghats had decreased and sooner or later they will be wiped out of Western Ghats.
