A top Maoist leader Wednesday appealed to Naga troopers of the Indian Reserve Battalion to defy orders and not take part in the ongoing security operations against the ultra left rebels in West Bengal’s Junglemahal region.
In an open letter to troopers of the Nagaland Indian Reserve Battalion -- who are on duty in the mountainous terrain of Purulia district to fight the ultras, Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist) politburo member Kisanji asked them to “revolt against the orders to battle against the people, desist from pumping bullets into the bodies of your brothers and sisters and defy all orders to dispatch you from one place to another at the diktat and whims of superiors to kill people and get killed”.
“The government considers you as ambush expert Nagas who can easily kill and get killed in the battle zone of the Ayodhya Hills of Purulia district,” Kisanji observed.
Two companies of IRB troopers were deployed in the Ayodhya Hills of Purulia district recently to flush out the ultra left rebels from the area as part of the anti-Maoists operations launched June 2009 in Junglemahal (forested Maoist-affected areas of West Midnapore, Purulia and Bankura).
It may be mentioned that 10 NAP (IR) battalion apprehended two hardcore Maoists September 12 last during a joint operation with West Bengal police inside Jhalda forest in Purulia district, West Bengal.
