Rapid Action Force Personnel Urges West Bengal Government to Fight Maoists Judiciously

(An exoticecho.com exclusive)

Sijua is a small hamlet under Salboni Police Station in Maoist infested West Midnapore District of West Bengal. Sijua is surrounded by the dense forests of Goaltore, Tirekota and Salboni. exoticecho.com talked to a RAF personnel staying at the barracks of a Rapid Action Force Squad in Sijua, currently engaged in a joint anti-rebel operation with the Central Security Forces in the area. The village of Sijua is strategically located and Maoists or the ultra Left Wing forces are desperately trying to capture the region as the ability to secure the area would offer the Maoist guerillas a distinct advantage by giving them a border region to wield their authority and offer tougher resistance to the security forces.

Talking to exoticecho.com a senior officer of the Rapid Action Force told exoticecho.com on conditions of anonymity that the Maoists had failed to penetrate Sijua because of a sizeable population of CPI (M) supporters who have robustly defended relentless attacks by the Maoist rebels.

However this is not the scenario in the adjoining areas where the writs of the Maoists run large. The officer however urged the West Bengal government to be judicious in the tactical deployment of troops from the West Bengal police in the war zone. He asserted that deployment of troops at the barracks for a prolonged span of time enabled the Maoists to spot and target them with ease while the personnel of the Rapid Action Force are traveling elsewhere in civilian dresses.

According to the officer deployment of police officials from the lower levels for a long time without the presence and guidance of an official belonging to the rank of an IPS officer was not a wise choice. He revealed that high ranking police officials hardly stayed for a week or two and were provided with all sorts of comfort, the officials belonging to the lower ranks had to languish in the barracks for months without adequate provisions for a proper living.

The RAF official pointed out that an uncovered well, the only source of water for the cops was utilised for drinking after passing the water through a strainer. He nonetheless said that despite numerous constraints work for constructing a drinking water tap had already started and lauded the administration for the effort.

As far as the weaponry provided by the government to combat the Maoist rebels was concerned, the RAF official said though the weapons provided by the government were satisfactory in thwarting Maoist assaults, the bullet proof jackets provided to the troops of the Rapid Action Force were cumbersome as they were quite heavy and exerted a great deal of strain on the troops while patrolling large stretches. He appealed to the government to offer modern bullet proof jackets that are light in weight so that they could perform the task of patrolling Maoist affected regions more efficiently.

Referring to the spate of attacks on cops fighting against the rebels and blaming them for the casualties suffered by them for their lax attitude, the RAF personnel told exoticecho.com, “Cops are humans. They too need rest after long hours of patrols. At times they take a break from their tiring schedule by relaxing at tea stalls and roadside village eateries. Taking advantage of the circumstances, Maoists posing as customers engage them in conversation and shoot them from point blank range and snatch their weapons. He refused to further elaborate on the topic.
