The Maoists, who have vowed to overthrow India’s government, periodically launch attacks on policemen and mainstream political party supporters across the South Asian country’s central and eastern regions.
Unrelenting poverty in rural areas, especially those inhibited by the tribal people in forest regions, has helped nourish the Maoists, who live in the jungles and are heavily armed.
The Maoist movement in India began in the late 1960s. It subsided in the early 1970s only to resurface as a more violent force that now operates under the banner of the Communist Party of India (Maoist).
Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh calls the Maoists the biggest internal threat to the country.
