The West Bengal government on Thursday convened high-level ranking police officials to chalk out plans for further action in the Maoist-infested Lalgarh, said a top official after the conclusion of the meeting in West Midnapore district of the state.
“We held talks with senior police and district officials on how to conduct the Lalgarh operation in the coming days. We discussed the modus operandi of the joint forces and how to resolve the security problem in this Maoist-affected region,” state Home Secretary Ardhendu Sen was quoted as saying.
Without divulging further details, Sen said specific decisions were taken at the meeting.
He said the state government would appeal for the retention of central paramilitary forces in Lalgarh beyond September 4.
