Kolkata: The security agencies in West Bengal are up for a nightmare as the top Maoist leader Maluljula Koteshwar Rao alias Kishenji has reportedly entered Junglemahal-the area ruled by the naxals.

According to the intelligence sources, Kishenji is accompanied by 30-35 hard core supporters who are majorly Hindi speaking. Three to four days back, he along with his supporters conducted meeting at Bheempur village of Salbani, West Midnapore. Later he moved towards the dense forest.

Reports of other hardcore Maoists like Kamal Maiti, Sanatan Soren alias Sona, Kanai Hansada and Rajaram alias Sagen meeting Kishenji are doing rounds. All of them are the accused of attacking Frontiers Rifle Camp in Siyaldah. 

Also, Andhra Pradesh Maoist Commander Vijay, V Reddy, R Rao, Akash alias Timir Urf, Aseem Mandal and member of the Mahila Gorilla Army, Jagri Baske will be there to accompany the rebel.

As per the reports, due to the fear of joint anti-Maoist operation, the People Liberation Guerilla Army (PLGA) has been lying inactive in Junglemahal.

Owing to the reports of Maoist activities, the Village Defence Committee (VDC) is being strengthened in Salbani, Lalgarh, Beenpur and Belpahari.

Intelligence sources suggest that Maoist leaders like Vikram Mahanto and Sabyasachee Panda, secretary of Orissa state committee of Maoists have been assigned the task of generating enthusiasm in the cadre.
