imagesGUWAHATI: Till last year, Maoist activities in the state were described to be at infancy, but not any longer. A day after police nabbed the central committee member of Maoists from the state along with another top leader, chief minister Tarun Gogoi on Saturday said the presence of Red rebels is growing.”It is a fact that Maoists activities are growing in the state and we have been updating the Centre on this. Here, there is a very thin line between Maoists and other militant outfits. Almost all of them seem to be working in cooperation,” said Gogoi.

The chief minister praised police and security forces for nabbing two senior CPI (Maoists) leaders, on the outskirts of the city, on Friday.

According to security sources, Maoists first established base in Tinsukia district and then Lohit and Dibang Valley districts in neighbouring Arunachal Pradesh sometime in 2010. Three years now, Maoists’ mobilization has been reported from as many as seven districts – Tinsukia, Dibruagrah, Sivasagar, Jorhat, Golaghat, Sonitpur and Kamrup.

The lid on the Maoists’ northeast connection was blown off in 2010 when Aditya Bora, the founder of Maoist base in the region, was arrested along with Tingrai Orang, a tea tribe leader, from Orissa. In 2011, police nabbed nine rebels from different locations in Lohit district of Arunachal Pradesh.
