Members of the All India Nepali Unity Society (AINUS), a Maoist front organisation, were seen heading towards northern Rolpa, past Bhavang a fortnight ago. More than 200 full-time Maoist cadres from India are said to have reached the Maoist stronghold at Rolpa by crossing the porous international border at Rupaidiha, travelling through Nepalganj and into the forest areas of Dang. The news report quoted a local Maoist leader who said the underground party had sent its activists to study the strategic location of the area and undergo higher-level training at their "university". The Maoists have set up a high-level training school at an unspecified location within the district to train their cadres in military science. The Maoist cadres, carrying green bags and speaking with an Indian accent, are said to have left India after their organisation was banned for actively supporting Nepali Maoists.
