New Delhi: For the first time ever, security forces on the border of Telangana and Chhattisgarh have been upgraded. On request of the state govt, the centre has deployed National Security Guards (NSG) to hunt down the Maoists in Bhadrachalam Agency area. The deployment stemmed from the recent murder of Irpa Ramudu, deputy sarpanch of Kurnavalli by Maoists.

As many as 100 NSG commandos have been put into operations into operation in the Bhadrachalam Agency area on an experimental basis an official source said.

Normally, NSG commandos are used for VVIP security as they are trained for that purpose. But the Union government is taking curbing the Maoist menace as a prestigious issue and using all options available to it. Till now, the government has been using Greyhounds, special party forces, and CRPF for hunting Maoists but the Centre now wants to use NSG for better results.

The current battalion deployed at the borders has 300 commandos. Sources say some of the Maoists may have crossed over from Chhattisgarh to Bhadradri-Kothagudem, Mulugu, Jayashankar-Bhupalapally and Adilabad districts. After the killing of Irpa Ramudu, police have intensified combing operations.

Security force have been launching stringent operations back-to-back to nab the Maoist. Meanwhile, CRPF, state police, Cobra and DRF have been vigorously conducting combing operations.
