The Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) arrested six people with suspected Naxal links and recovered weapons from their possession at Hindon Vihar in Noida’s Sector 49 on Saturday evening. Confirming the arrests, Aseem Arun, IG, ATS, said, “They are adept at making bombs and were planning some incident in the Delhi-NCR region. Interrogation is still underway.”

Those arrested have been identified as Pawan Jharkhand of Madhubani in Bihar, Ranjit Paswan of Chandoli in UP, Sachin Kumar of Dankaur in Greater Noida, Krishna Kumar Ram from Sasaram in Bihar, and Suraj, a resident of Bulandshahr in UP. Suraj was the group’s local contact for conducting operations in the Delhi-NCR area, said sources.

They are allegedly linked to a Naxal unit from Latehar in Jharkhand, said sources.

“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.

Police sources said that a white car with a Uttar Pradesh registration plate was also recovered from the area where the raid took place. Jharkhand IG (Operations) M S Bhatia said: “We have got information about the arrests. We are in touch with our counterparts in Uttar Pradesh and verifying the identity of the accused.”

    These economic refugees of crime are part and parcel of the politicians who use them to intimidate the public into voting for them. There are not a lot of places a person can hide in India, especially in a society that is busy talking about its neighbors and strange visitors. The police gets a cut from every criminal in India, while the big fish in crime is milked by the politicians. Cut corruption and it will cut down the crime. Better still make death penalty for cases where a person is convicted of corruption, watch how corruption falls down over night.

          Very little real news is given on Naxalites, Maoists etc. Most of us don't even know who they are or what they fight for. The way things are, truth is hidden and details of their crimes do not reach the common public. All we know is they are to be neutralised using special forces trained by our beloved Faujis. Ever heard of adivasis involved in scams?
