WB contemplates inter-state joint operations
Kolkata: The West Bengal government is contemplating joint operations with neighbouring states against Maoists in junglemahal.
"Yes, we have a plan for joint operations in junglemahal," DGP Naparajit Mukherjee told reporters here when asked if joint operations were being planned with Odisha and Jharkhand against Maoists.
He, however, refused to give details.
"I won`t say anything more," the DGP said.
During a recent visit to Belpahari in West Midnapore district, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had expressed concern that Maoists from Jharkhand and Odisha were hiding in a few pockets at Belpahari, Binpur and bordering areas of Jhargram and had urged the rebels to surrender.
