There is no 'Operation Green Hunt': Chidambaram

Home Minister P. Chidambaram Wednesday insisted that there was no "Operation Green Hunt" against Maoists -- as has been widely reported.

"There is no Operation Green Hunt," Chidambaram told reporters here.

Chhattisgarh police officials say they had coined the term for one successful drive against the Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist) in the state.

But former Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) director general A.S. Gill told IANS it was wrong to call the current campaign against the Maoists by the same name.

"It is a media creation and continues till date," Gill said.

Chidambaram's clarification came a day after Maoist guerrillas massacred 76 security personnel in Chhattisgarh Tuesday in the worst attack since the Maoist movement erupted over four decades ago. (IANS)
