Hyderabad, January 10
Though the government is giving statements that there are no naxalites in the State, the recent incidents of naxalites threatening political leaders, district officials visiting Maoist-affected areas suggest that Maoists are resurfacing.
State Director-General of Police in his annual report recently said that they have information that 90 naxalites are moving around in the border areas of four districts. According to reliable sources, grey hounds are combing for these 90 members.
Adilabad district Superintendent of Police Srinivas, along with his team, toured the remote village Dedra in Bazar Hatnur mandal. He promised to develop the village by adopting it.
According to reliable information, Maoist leader Sangitakka is staying in this village which lies in the border area of two states. The District SP’s assurance that rehabilitation will be provided to Sangitakka if she surrenders, indicates that police have received information that Maoists are trying to get a foothold in the area.
Meanwhile, it is known that naxalites have threatened a political leader of Warangal and his followers, who have been doing settlements and land business in the district. It is also known that Maoists are threatening sand contractors at several areas in Nizamabad and Karimnagar districts through wall posters and palmphlets.
