New CRPF chief Prakash Mishra has said that the paramilitary force will adopt new strategies to combat the growing menace of Maoism in the country.
Mishra, who took charge as Director General of the Central Reserve Police Force earlier in the week, said: “We will adopt new counter strategies to combat Maoism and the force will be trained accordingly.”
According to the new DG, special focus would be on curbing the growing Maoist threat along the borders of Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and Bihar.
He focused on the need to reduce casualties among security personnel during anti-Maoist operations.
Mishra, a former chief of Odisha Police, said his experience would be useful in other states while dealing with the Maoists.
