TERRORISM - 2008 (January to December 2008) Compiled By K. SAMU Human Rights Documentation, Indian Social Institute, Lodi Road, New Delhi, India 4 militants hit CRPF camp in UP, eight killed (12) Lucknow, Jan. 1: Seven CRPF personnel and a civilian were killed and five persons were seriously injured in a militant attack on a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) recruitment camp in Uttar Pradesh’s Rampur district early on Tuesday morning, giving a bloody start to the New Year. A group of four militants armed with AK-47 rifles and grenades attacked the CRPF group centre at around 3 am on Tuesday, CRPF and police officials said. Additional director-general of police (law and order) Brij Lal said the militants first shot dead two CRPF men at the gate. One of the four militants then entered the camp tossing grenades and firing indiscriminately, he said, adding that the rest of the attackers stayed behind and escaped after some time. In the firing inside the premises, five CRPF jawans were killed in their sleep, he said. However, he said that gate number two, where a large amount of arms and ammunition had been kept, had not been attacked. Among the injured was one UP police constable and one home guard and they have been admitted to a hospital in Moradabad district. The security personnel and police patrolling the area tried to intercept the militants and this led to a fierce gun battle in which one of the terrorists was allegedly injured. The three militants escaped while the one who had entered the camp is reportedly still in hiding. Security officials were, however, unable to confirm if any of the militants had been killed. The area has been cordoned off and a combing operation is on. Top officials have also rushed to Rampur. Senior superintendent of police Sanjiv Gupta said the civilian killed in the attack appeared to be a rickshaw-puller and efforts were on to identify him. The recruitment camp, which is located on the Rampur-Delhi highway, had been on the terrorists’ hit list and the Intelligence Bureau (IB) had warned the UP government on November 28 that a "fidayeen" attack was likely on the CRPF camp in Rampur. The attack comes about 40 days after a series of blasts ripped through three court premises in the state, killing 13 people. The Union home ministry on Tuesday sought a detailed report from the UP government on the militant strike. Meanwhile, in a hurriedly convened press conference on Tuesday, UP chief minister Mayawati said the state government had passed on information about the possibility of the attack on the CRPF camp to the Central forces and it was up to the CRPF to remain "vigilant and extra cautious". She said the state police was adequately alert but the CRPF personnel should have also been extracautious……. (Asian Age 2/1/08) Terror scarred country in 2007 (12) NEW DELHI, Jan. 1: While terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir continued to show signs of decline, the threat from terrorism and communal violence in the hinterland and Naxal menace in tribal region remained a serious challenge for security agencies in 2007. If the past decade was wracked by militancy of Kashmir, there were signs of considerable improvement last year, security agencies said. The number of incidents were down by almost one third in Jammu and Kashmir and there was a 59 per cent decline in civilian casualties. However, the Naxal menace and insurgency in the north-east, mainly in Assam Manipur and Nagaland, posed a serious threat to national security. What has worried intelligence agencies is the continuous spread of the naxal network from tribal areas to urban pockets and their change in strategy of attacking government establishments in a more organised and planned manner. In the north-east, where the government initiated peace talks since 1997 and suspended operations against various insurgent groups, the ceasefire agreements so far have not yielded much result. To tackle the Naxal menace, in addition to joint operations, the Centre is also concentrating on development work in the Naxal-infested areas. The main areas of Naxal influence are Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand, which together accounted for 68.16 per cent of the total incidents and 76.42 per cent of the total casualties. There was a decline in the number of incidents and casualties in Andhra Pradesh and
