MHA to rope in Ex-Brigadiers to help fight Naxals

Appalled by the rising number of deadly attacks by Maoists, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has decided to rope in retired Brigadiers to plan and assist in anti-Naxal operations in four Left Wing Extremism (LWE)-affected States — Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Odisha and West Bengal.

The Ministry of Defence will be tasked with identifying suitable candidates who should have served as Brigadier in the Army’s fighting arm [Infantry], followed by a joint interview by top officials of the Defence and Home Ministries.
