Kerala Police vulnerable to face Maoists, says former IG

Kozhikode: Kerala Police is not equipped well enough to take on Maoist threats said former Thunderbolt head and retired IG Jose George. He said that we haven’t taken Maoists as serious as like other states. Many of the other states have special team to face the Maoists but we lack a special wing to fight them. “Our police still lack training to conduct operations inside the forests and when asked for, many of the officers evade such training session”, said him to Mathrubhumi News in an exclusive interview. Jose George said this on the backdrop of the fire exchange between Maoists and Kerala Police special commando wing, Thunderbolt, the other day at Chappa near Wayanad forest areas.
