[RxPG] Raipur, March 9 - The Chhattisgarh government is setting up a new police training school for constables in the Maoist stronghold of Surguja.

Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan laid the foundation stone of the school, the third of its kind in the state, at Manipat Thursday.

'Within five or six months, we will create infrastructure and start training constables with a focus on imparting skills for clamping down hard on leftist insurgents and to set a benchmark of human policing,' Home Minister Ramvichar Netam said.

'The government has an initial budget of Rs.100 million for the school. The funding will be raised once constables start getting enrolled,' Netam told IANS.

According to the minister, the police force had helped to stamp out insurgency from vast swathes of the state in the north -- Koriya, Surguja and Jashpur districts.

'Maoist violence has been confined to the hilly Bastar region - Dantewada, Kanker and Bastar districts. Though violence has surged in the last two years, it is a sign of the growing frustration in their ranks,' the minister said.

He added that guerrillas would soon be ousted from Bastar too.

Chhattisgarh has a police training school in Mana, near this state capital, and in Rajnandgaon, 110 km from here. There is also a Counter Terrorism Jungle Warfare College in Bastar's Kanker district.
