Korba: There is no evidence to suggest
presence of foreign Naxalites in Chhattisgarh, Chief Minister
Raman Singh has said.
"There has been no meeting of Naxalites from other
countries in Chhattisgarh, nor is there any evidence to prove
their presence here," he told reporters here yesterday.
The Naxals operating in the state are from local
areas. There were reports of the presence of foreign Naxals
in Chhattisgarh, but there is no proof of it yet, he added.
Singh`s statement comes amidst concerns expressed in
certain quarters over Nepal`s former Maoist guerrillas
providing arms and training to Indian Naxalites.
