CRPF compiles details on top Maoist leaders

Raipur (Chhattisgarh), April 28, 2010

The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) has compiled vital details about the Naxalite leadership in India. The CRPF list comprises top five Naxal leaders of the country.

The paramilitary force took two years for this intelligence gathering operation to unmask these men living under veil. Engaged in anti-Naxal operations across the country, the CRPF has always felt the brunt of Maoists. On April 6, 76 CRPF personnel were killed in an ambush in Chhattisgarh's Dantewada region.

Mallojula Koteswara Rao tops the CRPF's most wanted list. He has changed his name several times, Prahlad, Murali, Ramji, Sridhar, but he is most commonly known as Kishenji.

A Politburo member of the Communist Party of India (Maoist), Kishenji is the main organising force behind the Maoist movement in West Bengal. His claim to infamy is the kidnapping of BDO Prashant Kumar Layek and the attack on Silda camp of PAC, in which 24 police personnel were killed.

The second major find is the picture of 55-year-old Ganpati. His real name is Mupalla Lakshman Rao. He carries a reward of Rs 27 lakh on his head. He has more than 50 cases of murder, dacoity, arson, and sedition against him in Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.

The CRPF has also managed to procure the pictures of 3 other Naxal masterminds for its database. They are Kisanda, Kosa and Nambala Kesav. All these men carry a reward of up to Rs 25 lakh on their head.

They all are responsible for unleashing red terror in over six states of the country. Now the hunt for them is on, and the discovery of their photographs is being considered a major success.

Terming it a major breakthrough, Chhattisgarh Police IG R.K. Vij said, "It becomes difficult for police to investigate about an unknown criminal. If we don't have their pictures, even the locals cannot unmask them. We face difficulty in knowing the nature of crime committed by them."
