Nine suspected naxals were arrested from Hindon Vihar in Noida late Saturday night, Uttar Pradesh Inspector General, Anti-terrorist squad, Aseem Arun confirmed on Sunday. The official also confirmed that six pistols, 50 cartridges, three cars, 125 detonators and two laptops were also recovered. “They are adept at making bombs and were planning some incident in the Delhi-NCR region.

Among those arrested are Pawan Jharkhand of Madhubani in Bihar, Ranjit Paswan of Chandoli in Uttar Pradesh, Sachin Kumar of Dankaur in Greater Noida, Krishna Kumar Ram from Sasaram in Bihar, and Suraj, a resident of Bulandshahr in Uttar Pradesh.

“One of those arrested had been on the run for nearly four years. He has links with some Naxalite attacks. After he was traced, the other were arrested from Hindon Vihar. Initial investigation reveals that they were living in the area for the last 2-3 months,” said a senior police officer. More details are awaited.

      The police need to find out logistic support from ruling party at Delhi. Such expansion of operational area can't be possible without local support.

        JNU is suspected to be the political centre of Maoist ideology. They even support separatist elements of JandK and North East. How it is linked with Arvindin Kejrudin Mia must also be investigated.

            How dare they do it? Anarchists like Kejri and the JNU brigade will be terribly upset not to speak about the Communists. You can be sure of a Chinese hand behind them. I am really curious how The Hindu newspaper will cover this.
