DGP worried over Maoist activities


Assam director general of police Jayanta Narayan Chauidhury on Tuesday has expressed grave concern over the stepped up activities of the Maoist cadres in at least seven districts.


Talking to reporters in Guwahati on Tuesday he said that there were reports of Maoist activities from Golaghat, Sivsagar, Tinsukia, Lakhimpur and Dibrugarh.


He said that there were some areas under about 22 police stations in these districts where the red rebels are active and trying to cobble support.


His comment assumed significance two days after Union home minister P Chidambaram met Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi in Guwahati and reviewed the law and order situation.
