Top police and forest department officials from Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka on Wednesday discussed the infiltration of Maoists and the strategy to prevent their movement from one State to another.

Being the central area of both Kerala and Karnataka, Tamil Nadu is becoming the transit point for Maoists to move from one State to another and the meeting was held to adopt strategy to monitor and prevent the movement, police sources said.

Tamil Nadu STF ADGP Sandeep Rathore, Intelligence ADGP Eswaramoorthy, Superintendents of Police of Erode, Coimbatore, Nilgiris districts, DGP North Zone Kozhikode Rajesh Dewan, SPs of Kozhikode, Malappuram and Wayanad were among those participated in the over eight-hour meeting.

The meeting was attended by senior forest department officials and rangers of the three States, who can have direct contact with the villagers to get and exchange of information about the movement of extremists, they said.
Though the meeting was held at regular interval, this time it was stressed to have a better coordination between the officials, the sources said.
