DGP DK Pandey on Thursday said that police, taking lessons from Wednesday’s attack, will carry out anti-Naxal operations in future.
Pandey, while talking to media persons in Palamu, also announced that a police picket will be established at Kalapahari. The DGP later visited the spot where the blast took place on Wednesday.
“Taking lessons from yesterday’s blast, the police will carry on further operations against the rebels in the state. Operations will be conducted in the area after sealing the borders of Jharkhand and Bihar,” said the DGP. According to the DGP, the motive behind conducting anti-Naxal operations is to keep the state secured and also to provide strength to the developmental work being carried out in the State.
It could be possible only if the rebels are dragged away from the state, added Pandey.
The DGP, along with the other top police officials, visited Palamu on Thursday to pay tribute to the seven policemen who died in the bomb blast triggered by the Maoists at Chattarpur in Palamu.
According to police, out of seven policemen who died in the blast, three constables were natives of Palamu district, 2 were from Garhwa, 1 from Hazaribagh and the Chaukidaar was a local of Hussainabad.
