New Delhi: Maoists are trying to expand their information network by sending their cadres as labourers, maids, and hotel staff to Delhi and NCR. Intelligence agencies are worried over the large number of people migrating from Left Wing Extremism (LWE)-infected states, suspecting that some of them would act as informers to the Maoists.
The Intelligence Bureau (IB), in a report, has said that these informers are working as labourers and maids in houses and office complexes.
The IB has also prepared a list of localities which have become a playground for these informers.
The IB has also noticed that the cadres of banned organisations like the Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) and Popular Front of India (PFI) activists are frequently visiting these places, raising an alarm that the Maoists are trying to flex their wings.
"A large number of migrant labourers from LWE-infested states are present in the NCR, who may have links with them or are susceptible to being subverted. A vigil is called for on this account," a report exclusively accessed by MyNation says.
A list prepared by the IB also lists Delhi’s poshest areas like Greater Kailash, Hauz Khas, Satya Niketan, South Extension, where it has been found that ex-SIMI and PFI activists are frequently meeting the informers.
"These labourers are working in bungalows, flats, and hotels as maids, security guards, construction workers, and ex-SIMI and PFI activists are meeting them frequently. It has been found that they are providing information to top leadership of the Maoists from the national capital and NCR," sources claimed.
Even though the Maoists are trying to expand their network in the national capital, the Union government has stopped the red terror network from expanding.
According to government data, in 2013, there were a total of 76 Maoist violence-affected districts, which has been reduced to 58.
Not only this, incidents of violence have seen a sharp decline and now just 30 of these districts account for 90% of the LWE violence in the nation.
The LWE network is shrinking but some districts have also emerged as new playgrounds for the Maoists, with eight new districts being added to the list.
