Karnataka to seek Central nod for banning naxal outfits


Karnataka Government, which has recently imposed ban on 32 extremist outfits, would soon seek Centre's approval for banning more naxal groups, including the CPI (Maoist), to check the recent surge in their activities, Chief Minister N Dharam Singh said today.

The state has already banned 32 organisations, he told reporters here, adding Centre's approval was required to ban the activities of any outfit.

Singh said the police and intelligence wings have been directed to monitor the activities of naxal groups in the state and check infiltration of naxalites in the wake of the ban imposed by Andhra Pradesh.
