IB releases India’s most wanted list

mavoistsNew Delhi: Intelligence Bureau (IB) has released the list of India’s most wanted Maoist leaders who have challenged India’s security and has been the biggest internal security threat according to the Prime Minister. The dossier has been prepared by the IB, Union Home Ministry and the police force of Naxal-affected states. The dossier lists the top brains behind the Naxal threat.

General Secretary Ganpati alias Laxman Rao, 61, tops the list. He carries a reward of Rs 24 lakh and is the main ideological pillar behind the Naxals. The dossier lists Ganpati’s family members in Hyderabad, Dharmapuri and Karimnagar districts of Andhra Pradesh. Number two in the Politburo is Nambala Keshav Rao who comes from a family of government officials with a reward Rs 19 lakh on him. Rao’s brothers are Vigilance and CMD level officers in Andhra Pradesh.

Kishanji, the masked darling of the press, is alive and active in the Orissa-Chhattisgarh forests while his younger brother Mallojula Venugopal is also a Politburo member. Kattam Sudashan, Bureau Secretary of CPI (Maoist), is the alleged mastermind in April 2010 Dantewada massacre in which 76 security personnel were butchered. Kattam is believed to be still influential in the Dantewada region.

Pulluri Prasad Rao alias Chandranna is the secretary of the North Telangana special zonal committee. Kishan alias Mahesh is the international face of CPI (Maoist) and believed to be the link between Indian and Nepali Maoists. Kishan is the only Bengali amongst the largely Andhra-dominated outfit.

Former DGP, BSF Prakash Singh said, “In any anti-insurgency operations, it is important to know your friends from your foes. These pictures, one hopes, will help that cause.”
