Issues with M.C.C. (Maoist Communist Center)

Chatra is going through a very serious phase of extremists’ violence by M.C.C. (Maoist Communist Center) which is a banned naxal outfit. In recent past Chatra Police has been quite successful in controlling the naxal activities. During the operation Chatra polices arrested numbers of naxalite personnel as well as seized a number of arms, ammunition, lethal weapons and destructive explosive devices including the materials. The success of Chatra police against the naxal outfits has to a large extent led to the limiting of naxal violence.
