Director General of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) Kuldeep Singh said on Wednesday that the state of Bihar is now free from Maoists. Addressing the media, a CRPF officer said some Maoists had a presence in some places in the form of extortion gangs. But he said that there is no region where his group can dominate in Bihar at present.
Through three special operations, ‘Operation Octopus’, ‘Operation Thunderstorm’ and ‘Operation Bulbul’, launched from April this year, security forces have liberated Burha Pahad on the Jharkhand-Chhattisgarh border from insurgent control, Kuldeep Singh said.
Under this Thunderstorm, 7 Naxals have been killed in Chhattisgarh, 4 in Jharkhand and three in Madhya Pradesh since April 2022. 578 Maoists surrendered and arrested. Also Read: Union Cabinet to Plan Complementary System for Semiconductor Development and Display Manufacturing in Country

Incidents of left-wing extremism are at an all-time low. In 2009, 2258 cases were reported. That means 77 percent of left wing or Naxal extremism incidents took place. Now this number has come down to 509. Kuldeep Singh informed that the number of deaths due to Naxal attacks has now reduced by 85 percent.
