BSF former DG to probe Naxal attack

Rammohan has been asked to submit a report within 15 days to establish the circumstances preceding and the sequence of events leading to the incident on Tuesday.
The announcement came after Union Home Minister P Chidambaram disclosed that an inquiry would be launched what had happened in Dantewada where he said “something went wrong.”

“We have taken a decision to institute an inquiry into what went wrong,” Chidambaram told reporters here.

The Home Ministry order said 69-year-old Rammohan, a 1965-batch IPS officer, will reconstruct as far as possible the actual events that took place on that day from 5am to 12noon and until the first rescue party reached the spot.

He will also examine the call detail records of the mobile telephones used by the deceased and injured personnel of the CRPF during the encounter and gather evidence from family members and others that could throw light on the actual events that took place during the ambush.

He will analyse and establish the decision or command structure or hierarchy and the specific levels which took relevant decisions concerning the operation. The inquiry officer will also examine the quality of the training imparted to the relevant companies of CRPF and the details of standard operating procedures.

He will look into the response of the state police and the CRPF both during the ambush and the post-ambush relief and rescue operations.
