Special police force to tackle Maoist: Gogoi

Dispur rolls up its sleeves to set up two separate police cells to firmly deal with Maoist elements and the menace of counterfeit currency. Disclosing this on Monday, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said that both the cells will be headed by officers not below the rank of an inspector general of police. He said that the Maoists tactics are different than other insurgents. That’s why, he said specialised skills were required.


“We would strike deal with the Centre for the specialised training of the officers,” he said. Gogoi’s announcement assumes significance a few days after P Chidambaram assured the north east of all help to deal with these elements.
