The police are planning to use helicopters to locate the hide-outs of the extremists in inaccessible places amidst the dense Wynaad forests. This is intended to save the time and labour involved in tracking the lawless elements over widely dispersed areas. Official sources here [Trivandrum] said that the Navy was being approached for sparing their helicopters. They said that special police teams have been deputed to Malabar to investigate the cases of attack on police stations and houses in that area. The Kattikulam and Korom police outposts in North Wynaad were reopened to-day [November 29] as their temporary closure added to the panic created by terrorist activity in those remote areas. Police reinforcements have been rushed to the two outposts, which were earlier closed for lack of hands and for fear that they might become easy targets for the marauders.
