Five forces join hands for ‘Operation Hill Vijay’


Giridih, April 12: Security personnel from at least five major forces have launched ‘Operation Hill Vijay’ to root out Left Wing Extremists from the Parasnath hills in Jharkhand’s Giridih district.

“Personnel from the CRPF, Jharkhand Jaguar, CoBRA, Jharkhand Armed Police and district police from Dhanbad and Giridih are involved in the ‘Operation Hill Vijay’ to drive Maoists out of the hills,” Deputy Inspector General of Police (Hazaribagh) Upendra Kumar said.

Commando Battalions for Resolute Action (CoBRA) are a specialised force which has been raised by the CRPF for jungle combat, while the Jharkhand Jaguar are a Special Task Force for eradication of extremist activities in the state.

Launched a few days ago, Kumar said, the anti-Maoist operation would continue till the rebels were rooted out of the hills, as had been done in Saranda forests in West Singhbhum district.
