Police monitoring Maoist activities in Kerala


Thiruvananthapuram, Nov 18 Kerala Police are closely monitoring recent attacks allegedly linked to Maoists and investigating the incidents, said Kerala Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala Tuesday.

Police have identified the "modus operandi" behind the attacks and, for security reasons, were refraining from giving publicity to the investigations, Chennithala told IANS.

"The modus operandi behind these recent attacks is a ploy by a few organisations that have links with Maoists to get the sympathy of the local people," said Chennithala.

He said there were quite a few organisations in Kerala that act as fronts for Maoists.

Talking about two recent attacks, Chennithala said the attack on the corporate office of Nitta Gelatin at Kochi Nov 10 was to get the sympathy of the locals who allege the Nitta factory was polluting the Chalakudy river.

"The attack last night at a resort in Wayanad is being probed, but we do not wish to make it public," said Chennithala.

He also pointed out that these Maoists friendly groups target places and establishments where disputes are ongoing.

"Through this, they are able to win the confidence of the locals. Their key target areas are quarries, resorts and establishments," said Chennithala.

"Another feature in our state is that such groups are looking for visibility and for that they want publicity to create panic. So the police are watching every development," added Chennithala.
