member Kobad Ghandy (September 21, 2009) and the killing of another
politburo member Cherukuri Rajkumar alias Azad (July 2, 2010).
Senior Police officers said Maoist leaders have made a hit list
of 51 Very Important Persons (VIPs) ranging from senior bureaucrats
to top political leaders who could be targeted in the days to

well as the Uttar Pradesh (UP) Anti-Terror Squad are now in the

has been a lot of Naxal movement after Azad's encounter. We have
information that they have made a hit list and plan to disrupt
the Commonwealth Games," said an unnamed senior UP Police officer.
