On Board BSF Plane, UNI

Infiltrators were now using sea to sneak into India after fencing of the land borders with the neighbouring countries, prompting the Centre to step up coastline security, Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil has said.


Infiltrators were now using sea to sneak into India after fencing of the land borders with the neighbouring countries, prompting the Centre to step up coastline security, Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil has said.

He told reporters on board Avro, the BSF plane flying him from Latur to Ranchi yesterday, that both the Coast Guard and state police have been alerted against sea infiltration.

The Centre was spending Rs 500 crore to strengthen coastline security in the wake of reports about intrusion via sea, Mr Patil said, adding the money would help states build more police stations along sea beaches, creating more communication facilities and buying weapons.



The Home Minister was travelling to Ranchi to preside over the 19th Meeting of the Eastern Zonal Council, a regional forum that last met 14 years ago.

This current meeting of the Council focuses on a range of issues facing eastern states, such as their economic, security, energy, weather and water problems.

Asked about the present status of Naxal activities, Mr Patil confirmed the Maoist links of the radical Leftists, but said there was an overall four per cent reduction in Naxal violence.

''But certainly, this four per cent does not mean a complete end of Naxalism.'' The Home Minister, however, regretted that states were not using Central funds aimed at modernising their police force.

''We have given you (the states) Rs 3,000 crore. Please use this money to modernise your police force.'' Mr Patil also advised the states to set up their own Disaster Management Authorities to deal with natural calamities.

''Headed by its Chief Minister, each state should have a Disaster Management Authority, on the lines of the Prime Minister's National Disaster Management Authority,'' the Home Minister said, adding preparations were underway to deal with floods during monsoon.

Pakistani firm whose chemicals were used to kill US troops seeks subsidy for Indiana plant

By Jennifer Griffin, Justin Fishel
Published March 22, 2013


A Pakistani fertilizer maker whose chemicals have been used in 80 percent of the roadside bombs that have killed and maimed American troops in Afghanistan is now seeking U.S. taxpayer subsidies in order to open a factory in Indiana. 
The request appears to be on hold pending further review, but the situation has stirred outrage in Congress, where some accuse the Pakistani government of halting efforts to clamp down on the bomb-making. 
For the past seven years, the U.S. government has known that the raw material calcium ammonium nitrate, or CAN, is making its way across the border into Afghanistan where the Taliban use it to fuel their most deadly weapons, namely the improvised explosive device. IEDs have long been the number one killer of U.S. and coalition troops. 
The material largely comes from Pakistani fertilizer maker the Fatima Group. But the Pakistani government has stymied attempts by the Pentagon to stop the flow of the…
