Not Chinese government but smugglers selling arms to Maoists: India

IANS 10 November 2009, 06:57pm IST

NEW DELHI: The union home ministry Tuesday denied that its official had said that the Chinese government was supplying arms to Indian Maoists and
clarified that he meant the weapons were being supplied by smugglers from that country.

Union home secretary GK Pillai was "not quoted correctly", a press statement from the ministry said.

Speaking to reporters here Sunday, Pillai had said "Chinese are large suppliers of small arms and I am sure the Maoists get it from them", without elaborating whether the rebels were getting arms from Chinese smugglers or official agencies.

"In this connection, it is clarified that the secretary while speaking to newsmen here last Sunday simply conveyed that small arms made in China had been illegally brought by arms smugglers to India and supplied to Maoist groups.

"This observation was based on facts. At no point did the secretary say that the Chinese government was involved in the supply of arms to Maoists," the statement said.
