Faced with increasing violence by Naxalites, who often move from one state to other through deep jungles after launching attacks, security agencies are mulling aerial monitoring of their movements in order to tackle the menace.
"They commit the crime in one state and flee to the other through deep jungles. But we have to know the ways and means to deal with the situation. Aerial monitoring is one of the options that we are thinking over," Director General of Central Reserve Police Force J K Sinha told PTI on the sidelines of a function.
He said another option the security agencies were considering was to replicate the kind of operations conducted by the special force of the Andhra Pradesh police to deal with the naxals.
"They go for operations for 10-12 days non-stop. They take all support system like food, clothes, cooking utensils along with them while chasing the militants. Such operations produce better results," Sinha said.
Asked about reports of lack of coordination between central security agencies and state police forces, he said they were working on better coordination while going on operations against the naxals and sharing of intelligence inputs among themselves.
"It is true that we require better coordination. We have people in all naxal affected states. What we need to do is to oil the system for effective results. We are working on it and you will witness the results soon," he said.
