Deployment of Helicopters in Naxal Affected States

14:7 IST

Government has proposed deployment of Indian Air Force (IAF) helicopters in Naxalalite affected States for providing logistic support to Para Military Forces. No offensive military action is envisaged.

No specific approval is required for action in self defence. However, the IAF has proposed a draft ‘Rules of Engagement’ to regulate such action, in order to avoid any ambiguity and damage / injury to the helicopters and occupants.

This information was given by Defence Minister Shri AK Antony in a written reply to Shri Ravindra Kumar Pandey and Shri Rakesh Singh in Lok Sabha today.
