Sketches of top Naxals to help security forces

Raipur, Mar 18 (PTI) To help identify top naxals, security agencies have been able to piece together sketches of these extremists who had remained faceless for decades now.

Police and security forces fighting the naxals in Chhattisgarh were recently handed over sketches of some of the Naxalites who have been active in the area.

But since the pictures of numerous top naxal leaders are not available, artists have been roped in to draw sketches based on details provided by arrested Maoists.

"The security forces, both state and central, are being provided with the sketches in order to get the top leadership of the naxals and also to sharpen intelligence based operations," a senior security officer said.

The photographs are being provided to all officers in the rank of company commanders and commanding officers of battalions deployed in naxal areas.
