Kolkata: Apart from underground guerilla warfare techniques, Maoists operating in West Bengal, Orissa and Jharkhand have excelled in effectively organising their accounts.

That’s what West Bengal Police CID recently discovered after it decoded a laptop seized during an operation in Lalgarh.

“It seems a qualified chartered accountant has prepared the accounts. The distribution of remuneration [to whole-time and part-time activists] has been done by someone highly qualified in human resource management,” a CID official said.

“Details of every single penny earned and every paisa spent for various purposes have been mentioned in the accounts. Records of purchase, allotment of uniforms, food items and even innerwear handed to each guerrilla, is mentioned,” the official added.
The records reveal that they have collected nearly Rs120 crore as ransom from Bankura, Purulia and West Midnapore districts. “You can imagine how much they have collected from the entire region,” the CID official said.

While decoding the seized laptop, it is learnt that the CID sleuths also recovered a planned remuneration package allocation budget for the region for 2010.

“The budget for remuneration for both full-time and part-time activists for theyear stands at Rs15 crore. We are trying to decode more information to find out how much they have spent on arms and ammunition,” the CID official said.
