Maoists planned to sabotage Kalaikunda airstrip
Midnapore: Maoists had plans to sabotage the
Kalaikunda airstrip of Indian Air Force to take "revenge" of
the killing of their leader Kishenji, police said on Saturday.
Additional Superintendent of Police (HQs) Kalyan
Mukherjee said during intensive interrogation of six Maoist
linkmen, detained from Midnapore and nearby areas on the basis
of a statement of a detained sympathiser, the conspiracy to
sabotage the airstrip came to light.
Blueprint of the plot was prepared by top Maoist
leadership to "take revenge of the killing of Kishenji",
The Maoist sympathiser was detained from Indravati
jungle, near here, 12 days ago.
On the basis of his statement, police detained six other
Maoists who "confessed about the conspiracy to sabotage" the
airstrip, he said, adding "a map of the airstrip was seized
from them", he said.
Meanwhile, security in and around the Kalaikunda airstrip
was increased four times with deployment of more paramilitary
forces and sniffer dogs, he said.
Midnapore district administration held a high-level
meeting to review the situation.
