Andhra Pradesh Director-General of Police (DGP) Swaranjit Sen today said the nexus between naxals and terrorists has to be nipped in the bud.
Delivering the presidential address during 10th K S Vyas Memorial Lecture on ”Security Imperatives For Development Despite Armed Extremism and Terrorism” here, he said the most disturbing threat to peace would be the nexus between naxals and terrorists.
”If this happens, life would become very miserable,” he noted.
He said the state police resorted to the formula of ”Offence is the best defence” in dealing with Maoists last year and it yielded good results. ”I am sure the same strategy would have been followed by Mr Vyas if he were alive today”, he added. However, Mr Sen expressed the view that the state police was lagging behind slightly in countering the naxal strategy. On this front, the police need to improve, he added.
