Maoists seeking ties with northeast insurgents: PC

 
Home Minister P Chidambaram“In a bid to expand its influence it (Communist Party of India-Maoist) has been seeking alliance with secessionists and northeast insurgents... it is also lending support to their secessionist demands,” Chidambaram said in his opening remarks at the conference of state police chiefs here.

Besides a marked increase in the violence spurred by Maoists, the “greater sophistication” in the attacks to inflict greater damage was also of concern.  “(The) Communist Party of India-Maoist besides targeting police, police informers and inimical forces is laying greater emphasis on targeting infrastructure like roads, bridges,” Chidambaram said.

The home minister spelt out the priority areas in the next five years -- a modern police act, mega city policing, upgradation of forensic science laboratory and prison reforms.
