Agartala: The Central Reserve Police
Force (CRPF) posted in Maoist-hit areas in the country are now sharpening tactics and searching for new operational calibre
to contain the depredation of the ultras, officials said
Monday.

"We are sharpening tactics and searching for new
operational calibre to contain the activities of Maoists in
Jharkhand, West Bengal and other Maoist-hit areas," Director
General of CRPF K Vijay Kumar told reporters.

He said special training designs were launched for 218
battalions of CRPF, the largest paramilitary force in the
country to keep them fit and added 10 battalions of Cobra
forces have gone under a lot of special anti-insurgency
training.

Stating that the situation in Jammu and Kashmir has
been under control, Kumar said, CRPF was jointly operating
with the local police there which yielded good results.

Asked if there was any plan to launch an independent
intelligence wing of CRPF, especially for militant-infested
areas, the DG said he did not rule out the possibility of
launching such an outfit.

Kumar, who arrived to inaugurate a group centre
of CRPF at Damdamiya near here, said that three battalions of
women CRPF which were raised have been working very well.

He will also visit jungle warfare school at Vairangte
in Mizoram today.
