State police, CRPF launch anti-Maoist operation

BOKARO: District police in a joint operation with Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) have launched a massive anti-Maoist operation christened ‘More’ in jungles of Jhumra Hills under Gomia block. Senior officials have abstracted the name of the operation ‘More’ with ‘Dil Mange More’ believing they would nab more naxals this time.

Three companies of CRPF and hundreds of policemen carrying hi-tech weapons have launched raids in the hilly terrain, which is continuing for the past 48 hours. Sources claimed that security forces have made a major recovery during the operation.

Bokaro police in past one year have shot three naxal leaders and arrested many cadres beside recovering landmines, arms and explosives conducting raids in Red-hit Jhumra region.

“This time the raid was again conducted on intelligence inputs on movement of Maoists in the forest of Jhumra,” said a police official.
