Kolkata: The DGPs of four Maoist-affected states of West Bengal, Jharkhand, Orissa and Bihar on Tuesday said that deployment of Central forces should be increased to flush out Maoists and UAVs used to spot them from the air.

"We are unanimous on enhancement in deployment of Central paramilitary forces," West Bengal police chief Bhupinder Singh told reporters at the State Secretariat where his counterparts from Bihar, Jharkhand and Orissa were present at a meeting with Union Home Minister P Chidamabaram to work out strategy against Maoists.

The DGPs also believed that along with ground operations, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) were needed to scour forests, he said.

Singh said his counterpart in Jharkhand admitted the presence of training camps of the left wing extremists in forests in Dalma and Singbhum areas.

The Maoists also seemed to have access to Nepal through a particular corridor, he said.
