Maoists strike again

In India, Terrorism on May 18, 2010 at 10:10 am

In yet another violent incident, a civil bus carrying 50 persons including 18 SPO’s was blown off by Maoists in Dantewada just 4 km away from CRPF camp on 17 May 2010. 44 persons including 18 SPO’s died in the incident.

One is not sure if this blast was actually meant for the civil bus or was planned for Dantewada SP and other police persons who crossed the spot 10 minutes before the ill-fated bus.

Notwithstanding the aforesaid, violence and loss of innocent human lives needs to be condemned strongly. Maoist extremists must realize that violent means will not only alienate them but will harm their cause. They must renounce violence and resort to peaceful negotiations.

I would also like to recommend certain preventive measures for security forces  to avoid such incidents:

  • Do not move single vehicle,resort to convoy move of three or more vehicles after proper  route opening.
  • Route opening must include traversing the entire route with mine detectors & explosive detection trained dogs  to detect any IED and deploying picket parties for surveillance & reaction.
  • Keep sector wise , vehicle  based quick reaction teams for response.
  • Never move in civil vehicles along with civil persons.
