Operation Green Hunt kills 90 Maoists in Chhattisgarh

Raipur: More than 90 Maoist militants were killed and 12 terror camps dismantled during the government’s anti-Maoist Operation Green Hunt, Chhattisgarh Home Minister Nankiram Kanwar said Thursday.

“As many as 90 Maoists were killed and 12 of their terror camps were destroyed till Feb 27 this year in state’s Bastar region under Operation Green Hunt,” the minister told legislators during question hour in the assembly.

The minister did not mention the date when the operation was launched in the state and also skipped a question from his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) colleague Devjibhai Patel about how many policemen were killed during Operation Green Hunt.

When Patel pressed for a number, the minister said: “It’s sure they (policemen) are just a few… situation in state is far better now compared to earlier situation when policemen were getting killed without inflicting much casualties to the enemies.”
