Reports of child soldier recruitment drives increasing in India

The Times of India recently reported that the People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army (PLGA) has stepped up efforts to boost recruitment by targeting children, mainly between the ages of 10-18.

Worried over the depleting cadre strength, the party’s Malkangiri division has decided to fill up the vacant slots in the platoons and area committees. [They] have threaten villagers and ask them to send a minimum of 10 children from each panchayat to join them.

Nearly 100 children fled to neighbouring villages of Sileru, Koraput, Jaipore and Viskhapatnam. “Some parents have sent their wards to remote places to safeguard them against the Maoist move,” the sources said.
