Medininagar: Jharkhand police
today said some persons with general crime records were trying
to contact the police identifying themselves as Maoists but
warned that they would not get any benefits under the
surrender package earmarked for identified left wing ultras.

After reviewing a top-level police meeting on anti-naxal
operations here, Director General of Police (DGP) Neyaz Ahmed
told newsmen that the police had records of wanted Maoists who
could avail the surrender policy.

Stating that the police would continue its anti-naxal
operations against those indulging in violence and destruction
of properties, the DGP said the police was making efforts for
a massive publicity campaign to lure back the misguided youth
to the democratic mainstream and avail the government’s
developmental schemes.

The DGP met the Superintendents of police of naxal -
infested districts of Chatra, Garhwa, Palamau and Latehar,
apparently to chalk out the plan to combat the naxal menace.
Jharkhand police have adopted a two-pronged strategy to
combat the Maoist problem -- continued anti-naxal operation in
their hideouts and ‘Operation Nai Disha’ under which the
police have appealed to the extremists to surrender and get
benefit from government schemes.
