West Bengal Police recover landmine and explosives

Madhabpur, Tue, 27 Mar 2012 ANI

Madhabpur (West Bengal), Mar.27 (ANI): West Bengal Police and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel have reportedly recovered a landmine and a large quantities of explosives in Madhabpur, a Maoist hotbed in the Jhargram region of the state's Paschimi Medinipur District.

A flashgun and a charger have also been retrieved, police sources said.

The landmine had five kilograms of explosives that could have been used to trigger off a high intensity blast.

Despite strong measures initiated by the government to crush the Maoist insurgency, it has gripped nearly a third of the country in its violent tentacles, spreading into the interiors of 20 of India's 28 states.

The guerrilla war, waged mostly from the forests of central and eastern India by the Communist Party of India-Maoist, now poses the country's biggest internal security threat, say analysts.

The prime victims of the atrocities and the fear mongering spread by the Maoists as part of a violent, ideology-driven struggle for rights and development of the marginalized families are the innocent rural villagers and tribals. (ANI)
