After addressing the officials and jawans, Kaushik spoke to the media and said that recently CRPF has formed a special team of 40,000 highly trained soldiers specifically for carrying out operations in Naxal hit areas in the country. He added that they have incorporated nearly 250 men who belonged or are native of Naxal areas like Gadchiroli, Dantewada etc so that they can converse in the local dialect and language when they go for operations. He said till date, whenever an operation of search and destroy is carried out, the Naxals immediately leave the place and slip into the neighbouring states, where they have their allies or friends from different Dallams. Henceforth, the CRPF will design and carryout operations in such a way, that the Naxals do not have any chance to escape. They are planning to carry out operations in such a way, that the Naxals are surrounded from all the four directions leaving no place to escape.
