Goa police asked to check if naxals using state as a shelter
Panaji: In the wake of recent arrests of
some naxal leaders here, the Goa government has asked the
police to check whether naxals are using the state as a
shelter to bide their time.
Chief Secretary Sanjay Srivastava told agency that Home
Ministry has asked the police to submit a report verifying
whether some of the ultras were using the state as a shelter.
The government`s action came in the wake of recent
arrest of Sambu Beck, a Maoiwadi Trushul Manch leader from
Orissa, who was taking shelter in the state.
One of his accomplice was also arrested by Goa police
from Mapusa town and handed over to Orissa police.
Srivastava said that home ministry "wants to know
whether there are other similar groups working here and
what action the police are taking to identify them."
Superintendent of Police Veenu Bansal, who headed the
operation to nab Beck this week, said yesterday that the naxal
leader was in the state as `he wanted to lie low`.
Bansal said that Beck was also working in one of the
industrial units in Goa and was hiding here for last one and
half month before state police zeroed in on him.
State Chief Minister Digamber Kamat told agency today
that steps are being taken by police to verify antecedents of
all those people who migrate here from other states.
"I don`t think that naxalites are trying to spread
their roots in Goa. Their agitations are on various issues,"
