Bangalore: Union Home Ministry is closely
monitoring if there is any external or internal institution
extending support to Maoists, External Affairs Minister S M
Krishna said on Friday.
Krishna`s remarks came in response to a query whether
there was any suspicion about external support to recent
attacks involving Maoists including today`s alleged sabotage
of Mumbai-bound express train in which over 70 passengers were
killed and 200 injured in West Bengal`s West Midnapore
district.

"In all such incidents, which could also be accidents,
the Home ministry is continuously monitoring if there is any
role of any institution internally or any institution which
are externally encouraging, abetting and creating confusion
and restlessness in India," he said.
"The Home Ministry and other agencies of the government
will keep a close watch on these developments," Krishna said.

On the train accident, he said it would not be fair on
his part to be judgmental till the preliminary inquiry report
is received.
