RAIPUR: Several people are under the police scanner for operating a well-established network for the outlawed Communist Party of India-Maoist in the Chhattigarh capital, after the seizure of dozens of boxes loaded with material used mainly for making rockets launchers and mortars.
A joint team of three states – Chhattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh and West Bengal – were stunned Sunday night when they raided a godown of Pal Goods Transport in Raipur and seized 79 boxes of raw materials for making rocket launchers and mortars.
“The raid was carried out based on the vital information we got from a few senior Maoists held outside the state recently. When we were informed by West Bengal police that Maoists had a supply route of rocket launchers and mortars materials to the restive Bastar region from Kolkata via Raipur, I didn’t believe it at first. But the information proved to be a hundred percent correct,” a senior officer here at police headquarters, told. agencies
