Surat: The Gujarat police, on Friday, filed a comprehensive FIR against CPI (Maoist) in the state to investigate their activities and identify persons involved in the spread of the banned organisation in the state.

Though Gujarat has a very large tribal belt, it has so far remained unaffected by the problems of naxalism.

The complaint filed by the police, however, indicates that the banned CPI (Maoist) is trying to spread its network in the state especially in tribal regions of South Gujarat.

"We have been compiling various interrogation reports of CPI (Maoists) activists arrested in other states and also examining various documents being distributed by them in the tribal belt of South Gujarat and intelligence reports suggesting their activities," Surat range Inspector General A K Singh said.

"We have analysed the source materials and we believe that their activities in South Gujarat are in continuation with their activities in other naxal-affected states of the country," Singh told agency.

"This is the first comprehensive FIR registered against them that will give legal power to police. Earlier, only minor complaints were filed against them," he added.

"This FIR will give us power to investigate and find out spread of CPI (Maoist) in South Gujarat. It is a banned organisation and we need to track their every movement," he further said.

The FIR filed by the police says, "based on the variety of source material, certain dimension of organisational activities of the CPI (Maoist) has been coming to notice in the region of South Gujarat."

"An offence has been registered under the various provisions of IPC and Unlawful Activities Prevention Act to enable full investigation into the matter in terms of their plans, activities and persons involved," the FIR further said.
