Pune: Maharashtra Director-General of Police Ajit Parasnis on Tuesday said that the police had succeeded in confining the naxalite threat to the two districts of Gadchiroli and Gondia.
Mr. Parasnis told presspersons here that the State police force had performed better than that of other States in tackling naxalism. The tribal people from east Vidarbha region of the State were lured by the naxalites, taking disadvantage of their backwardness.
“The Maharashtra police's new policy henceforth will be to include the local adivasis in the combat team and it will be named C-60 Force,” he said.
According to the DGP, the State would have an institute on the 108-acre plot in Nagpur to train its staff in fighting naxalites. The police personnel would be provided special training in forest warfare as well as ambush operations. There had been a spurt in ambush operations from Maoists in Chatttisgarh, killing more than 150 jawans.
