Aurangabad, Oct 1 (UNI) The proscribed CPI(Maoists) has geared itself up to challenge the Special Auxiliary Police(SAP), raised by the Bihar government to check the extremist activities in the state.
In a startling revelation during interrogation, member of Special Area Committee(SAC) of the CPI(Maoist) Sailendra Singh, recently arrested by Patna police, said the hardcore activists, specially trained in Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Nepal, had been given responsibility of challenging the SAP.
To fine tune preparation of striking capability with precision, the SAC had been bifurcated into two groups each for Bihar and Jharkhand, he said adding the Bihar committee had been further subdivided into four zones - Koyal, Central, Magadh and Sone Ganges.
The maoist comrade had also disclosed before police about the modus-operandi, chalked out by them to challenge the SAP which left the top police officers ''high and dry'' and they reportedly started mugging to finalise new strategies to meet the fresh challenges from the banned outfit.
When contacted IG (Patna Range) Rajvardhan Sharma, however, said, '' We have no information regarding the formation of such committees, '' and added even if such committees had been constituted by the Maoists, it would have no effect on the morale of the state police, and crackdown on naxal groups would continue as before.
