Observing that Naxals are on the “backfoot”, newly-appointed Inspector General of Police (in-charge) Bastar Range, Sundarraj P, who replaced controversial IPS officer S R P Kalluri, on Friday asserted that the “aggressive” operations against the ultras will continue. Indicating that there will be no let up on the Naxal front in Chhattisgarh even after the transfer of his predecessor, Sundarraj said, “Security forces are in a dominating position. The aggressiveness (in the operation) will be continued.”

“The Naxals are on the backfoot... the way the operation (against rebels) was underway, it will continue (with the same intensity),” he said. The “war” against the menace will be fought with “multiple approaches”, including by continuing development in the region, he added. The 2003-batch IPS officer has been brought into the Naxal-hit region following the exit of IG Kalluri, who was at the centre of controversies for his alleged high-handed style with activists claiming human rights violations in Bastar.
