An Indian based newspaper Asian Age states that Maoists are now using their women cadres to 'trap' security forces in Chhattisgarh’s Bastar region — a strategy earlier employed by the LTTE.

Citing several instances encountered by security personnel recently, a senior officer said the latest strategy adopted by the Reds was aimed at 'weakening' the forces psychologically.

The same tactics were employed by the LTTE against the Sri Lankan forces during insurgency.

The police officer, requesting anonymity, narrated how a contingent of security personnel from the CRPF and district force of Chhattisgarh police had walked into the trap of the rebels at Risgaon in Kanker district when they ventured into the nearby forest after hearing cries of women.

The troopers were soon greeted by intense firing by the Naxals, hiding in the jungle, leading to an encounter.
