Will welcome surrendered Naxals, but no option if you have weapons: Amit Shah

While addressing Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel in Bijapur, days after Naxal attack which left 22 security personnel dead and over 30 injured, Home Minister Amit Shah motivated the jawans and also said the government will welcome those who wish to surrender, but will have no option left for Naxalites who continue fight with weapons.

"When a friend leaves us and goes we do feel sad.

But the poor of this area is devoid of development due to Naxal issue.

We welcome those who want to surrender and come to us but we'll have no option if you have weapons in hands," said HM Shah.

He added, "Government of India understands all your problems and is firmly standing with you in this fight.

We will address all the loopholes as early as possible."

Watch: Purported video of Sitalkuchi firing goes viral, TMC calls it 'genocide'

A purported video from Sitalkuchi in Bengal's Cooch Behar is doing rounds on social media. Four villagers had died in the area in an altercation with CRPF jawans during the fourth phase of polling. Ruling TMC said video vindicates its position that there was no provocation for CRPF to fire. TMC MP and spokesperson Derek O'Brien went on to dub it as cold-blooded genocide. The video shows many locals gathered in a field, while some are seen wielding sticks. In the viral video, some central force jawans can also be seen. Soon firing can be heard, though it is not clear who fired the shot. Video shows a ruckus erupt in the area after the shots are fired. Earlier, Cooch Behar SP had said there was rumour that police opened fire. Debasish Dhar had added that the rumour led locals to come out in large numbers. The SP had said that this led the Central forces to open fire in self defence.
