The police are worried over NGOs and social action groups funnelling funds to Naxalite coffers.

Speaking to DNA on Friday, director general of police PS Pasricha said the police were trying to track down the funding sources. “It’s an unfortunate development; something with extremely serious ramifications. We are going all out to plug the trend.”

The DNA reported on May 1 that 57 NGOs and social groups across the city were blacklisted by the state intelligence department for aiding Naxalite and Maoist insurgents. The top cop’s concern stems from the fact that several among the blacklisted groups have been found to be cash-rich.

Senior officers feel there could be a bigger problem if the Left-wing extremists managed to develop a “support structure” in the city.
