Will avoid cars, deploy ROP in anti-Maoist operations: Police


The Dantewada police have decided to avoid use of four-wheelers besides deploying Road Opening Party (ROP) during anti-Maoist operations, it is learnt.

The decision has been taken on the heels of April 26 IED blast in which 10 personnel of the District Reserve Guard (DRG) and a private driver were killed.

The Maoists had planted around 50 kg explosives after digging a foxhole tunnel beneath the road in the April 26 attack.

Police sources in Aranpur said, “The ROP was not conducted as it was a covert operation and we did not want the Maoists to get a clue. But it was our mistake not to conduct a ROP while returning as we considered the path to be safe. Henceforth, we will use bikes after ROP or walk.”
