CNN-IBN

New Delhi: The Naxal incidents in Bihar and West Bengal have taken place even as the Chief Ministers of various states take part in a meeting called by the Prime Minister to discuss internal security on Sunday.

The Meeting has begun in New Delhi and is likely to focus on tackling cross-border terrorism, Naxalism and chalking out the new security architecture among other issues

CNN-IBN has got access to the Home Ministry's internal note, which slams states' lack of preparedness to fight Naxals and terrorism.

The report says Maharashtra, one of the worst hit by terror, is far behind in modernisation of its security apparatus.

Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan, Andhra and Karnataka though have been lauded for their forensic infrastructure.

Another issue is the misuse of funds allocated for modernisation of policing system by the states.

Bihar and Madhya Pradesh have been rated poor on the use of funds.
