Bhubaneswar: Top security officers of CRPF, BSF and Odisha Police on Saturday attended the Unified Command meeting for chalking out anti-Maoist operation strategy in the state.
"We discussed the law and order situation concerning the security of the civilians," Chief Secretary B K Patnaik told reporters here after presiding over the meeting.
Patnaik refused to divulge more details about the talks.

Sources, however, said the unified command felt that there was a need to change the strategy as maoist violence has substantially declined in the state.

"The anti-maoist operation will now focus on pockets and specific districts instead of a large areas," a senior officer said.

The state has presently deployed eight battalions CRPF, six battalions BSF and one battalion Cobra force besides the state`s Special Operation Group (SOG) and district police personnel.
