Tamil Tigers training Nepal's Maoists: Report

Sri Lanka's Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) guerrilla group is providing military training to Nepal's Maoist insurgents in India's Bihar state near the Nepalese border, a media report has said.

In its Friday edition, the South Asia Tribune, an ezine - magazine published on the Internet - from Washington said the Lankan rebels were teaching Nepalese outlaws to form human bomb squads for suicidal missions.

The Tigers are said to be running a training camp in Narkatiaganj and Ghorasahan in Bihar near Nepal's border.

"Women and teenage boys and girls were being recruited for these squads. They also carry cyanide capsules with them," the report said. The report is said to be based on an interview taken in New Delhi with a Maoist leader.

Though the report did not name the leader, who was described as having come to the Indian capital from Purnea in Bihar, other media reports speculated whether it was Baburam Bhattarai, once the second-in-command of the Maoists, who visited New Delhi in May and met Indian politicians as well as Nepalese political leaders.

The LTTE, also known as Tamil Tigers, and prominent Indian separatist group United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) were present as special invitees.

The secret meeting reportedly decided the Tigers would provide full support to the Indian and Nepalese Maoists and Indian Maoists would provide shelter and training camps to Nepal's Maoists.

"Tamil Tigers have formed four Human Bomb Dalams (squads) of women," the report said.

"Each dalam has 20 women. Similarly, 12 dalams of the suicidal squads have been formed. Each dalam has 40 young boys and girls. Indian and Nepalese Maoists are being jointly trained in this camp."

The report also says French trainers are providing training to Nepalese rebels in the Indian state of Uttaranchal, in districts like Tanakpur, Pithoragarh and Bageshwar.

The report also said the Maoist leader admitted that Nepal's rebels had joined hands with the Indian outlaws to attack a police station and two state-owned banks in Bihar last month, in which at least 21 people were killed.

However, the Maoists' top leadership had issued a statement soon after such reports, denying any involvement in the raid.

LTTE cloud on Maoist murders

July 15. 2005 — Maoist activists from the state are visiting their counterparts in Andhra Pradesh frequently to receive training from a central military commander in-charge of CPI-Maoist operations in West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand and Orissa. Police suspect that this commander is probably the mastermind behind the recent killings of three CPI-M activists in two separate operations in Bankura and Purulia.

Known among his comrades and Intelligence officers as Kishanji, he had been trained by LTTE commanders in all aspects of guerrilla operations, which he has been inculcating among the Maoist divisional commanders in these four states.

Senior police officers said he is now looking to unleash a new wave of terror in the area after police managed to arrest two senior Maoist military leaders in April and May this year.

The West Midnapore special operations group also managed to arrest Ajay alias Nilu, the technical head of the Maoists in the state, from Barrackpore in North 24-Parganas.

“Ajay was a major catch as he was an expert in mine preparation. A science graduate from a rich family, he married Jyotsna Mahato, another Maoist, and used to supply his know-how to extremists. Ajay received training from ‘Kishanji’. He came back from Andhra Pradesh, prepared munitions and supplied them to the Maoists,” a former member of the now-dissolved SOG told The Statesman. According to SOG, Gora, a Maoist area commander arrested from Malda recently, told police during interrogation that he used to provide arms training to selected cadre and helped in strengthening their organisation by roping in more youths.
Intelligence sources said Kishanji originally belonged to People’s War and became the CPI-Maoist central military commander when it merged with the MCC later. Another top leader, Kishanda, is suspected to have given his approval to the recent attacks.

“After the arrest of Gora and Ajay, we suspect that Kishanji along with other members, felt that there was a need to once again strike terror. Hence the recent attacks,” he said.
