Naxal groups spend huge money to buy weapons

New Delhi, Nov 18 (PTI) Contrary to popular perception that naxals depend on looted weapons, it has come to light that each group of the left-wing extremists spends lakhs of rupees for buying weapons among other things.

Recently seized records of the ultras during operations carried out by central security agencies reveal that the Left-wing extremists who earn several lakhs of rupees annually through levy, extortion and threats have their own "corporate style" accounting system, central security agency officials said.

The 'dalams' or groups (which usually consist of about 20-40 cadre) give their tabled income and expenditure details on a half-yearly basis to the zonal command which is then forwarded to the next level.
