Recently, Nagpur police arrested four Maoists - Mahesh alias Murali alias Ashok Satya Reddy, Arun Thomas Ferreira, Naresh Bansod and Dhanendra Bhurle and seized substantial incriminating material from them. After guiding the operation, Yadav informed that the vital information collected from the arrested Maoists as regards their activities in the state would be handed over to the state and central intelligence agencies.
Yadav said that the activities of the Maoist frontal organisations may have serious ramifications in future. "I spoke about the frontal organisations activities in the state and the danger they pose to the country," said Yadav. The city police chief shared vital documents about the activities of Maoists retrieved during the seizures at the state level conference.
Apart from 396 cases of house breaking, about 78 robberies have taken place in the city so far till May.
"City police is open to issuing arms licence to the local sarafa traders," said Yadav. "The sarafa traders can keep their private guards and we would also intensify our vigil," he added.
