Naxals procuring bullet-proof jackets for top leaders

New Delhi, Dec 15 (PTI) The left-wing extremists are trying to procure bullet-proof jackets for their senior leaders and are acquiring sufficient arms and ammunition as they prepare to fight the security forces.

Official sources said they have inputs suggesting that the Naxals, who were earlier known to use looted weapons, have slowly changed their strategy and are now even trying to procure bullet-proof jackets besides foreign weapons and high-end communication systems.

This information first came to light with the arrest of officials a Delhi-based construction firm in July this year.

The arrests, made in a joint operation of the Delhi Police Special Cell and the Jharkhand police, was effected after a consignment of high-end communication systems was seized at the Ranchi airport. Subsequent raids had led to discovery of bullet-proof jackets from a Jharkhand office of the particular firm.
