April 30, 2010; Rampur, UP: In a highly secret counter-terrorism operation the Special Task Force (STF) of Uttar Pradesh (UP) Police has nabbed two highly covert Naxalite agents working in the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF). The STF was looking into breaking down the Maoist rings with the military and paramilitary units of the nation. After it got a very secretive tip-off, several simultaneous raids into CRPF camps in Rampur, Moradabad and Jhansi took place and a number of suspects have been detained or questioned with a confirmed arrest of two CRPF officials namely Vinod Paswan and Dinesh Singh.

A large cache of ammunition that was to be trafficked into the hands of Maoist units, has been recovered that consists of 5000 round ammo, 16 grenades, 325 Insas rifles, SLR and Carbines and 45 KG explosives. The entire consignment was to be delivered to Maoists.

The STF officials said that it was a great setback for the Maoists as they could wreck havoc with this much ammo. The STF officials denied to reveal much about the arrests and said that they will nab all the traitors soon.

There is presence of malicious elements within forces establishments which are sympathetic towards the terrorists, separatists and extremists. The consequent Maoist success in the recent attacks and ambushes against the paramilitary forces in the red zones indicate their Humint network within the forces which are leaking secret information to them and breaking down this Humint structure is a top priority in the national security matters.
