RAIPUR: Chhattisgarh government has extended the ban on outlawed CPI(Maoist) and its six frontal organisations for one more year.

"The ban on the CPI(Maoist) and its six frontal organisations has been extended for another one year," a state Home department official said here today.           

 The CPI(Maoist) was first banned along with its affiliates in Chhattisgarh in April 2006 under section 3 of Chhattisgarh Special Public Security Act-2005, and since then the state government has been extending the ban every year.      

The six frontal organisations of the Maoists which have also been banned are the Dandakaranya Adivasi Kisan Mazdoor Sangh, Krantikari Adivasi Mahila Sangh, Krantikari Adivasi Balak Sangh, Krantikari Kisan Committee, Mahila Mukti Manch and Jantana Sarkar.      

The ban will be effective from April 12, 2016, for the next one year, the official said.       

Chhattisgarh's Bastar region, comprising seven districts - Dantewada, Bijapur, Bastar, Kanker, Narayanpur, Kondagaon and Sukma - is spread out in about 40,000 sq kms areas where security forces have been fighting the Maoist menace for over last three decades.
