Karnataka: Maoists call on tribals to fight against govt

Posted by Admin on July 25, 2009

naxal67CHIKMAGALUR: Naxalites have urged tribals who are living in Kudremukh National Park area to take up their traditional weapons to fight the state government and to protect themselves from eviction.

In a letter sent to newspaper offices, Maoist Area Committee member Kamala has said until now the BJP was spreading just religious communalism to oppress minorities but now it has assumed a fascist face and started training guns on farmers, tribals and workers.

The letter has accused the government of taking statements from tribals by force that they will never cooperate with the Naxals in their fight against the fascist forces. Claiming that Maoists are fighting for the rights of tribals, the letter said it is working to get them right to their dwelling places.

They termed the recent visit of the rural development and panchayat raj minister Shobha Karandlaje to the area as a farce and said the distribution of land rights and other facilities is a drama to make people believe that they will be allowed to live in the place. On the other hand, it is apprehending tribals under the guise of Naxal supporters and putting them behind the bars.

The letter cautioned people that the government is hatching a conspiracy to evict them and they should not give in to the statements. It has also said increase of anti-people programmes will further strengthen the movement.

Lalgarh: Police Officer in Maoist Custody

Posted by Admin on July 25, 2009

Lalgarh eLALGARH: Maoists on Friday abducted a police officer in Lalgarh in protest against police atrocities on innocent villagers. A police team which
went to rescue the abducted officer had to beat a hasty retreat after facing strong resistance from the Maoists. Police do not have any idea yet about where the abducted officer has been taken to.

It was around 2 pm in the afternoon when a truck carrying water from Midnapore was heading for the Bhimpur police camp. Banamali Mahato was driving the vehicle with Santosh Murmu as his helper.

Deepak Pramanik, an assistant sub-inspector, boarded the truck from Pirakata police camp. He was supposed to get off at Bhimpur.

When the truck came near Pirrakhuli village, a few hundred people blocked the road and dragged all three out of the vehicle. Villagers claimed that early in the morning, a police team went to Belasole village and tortured several people.

The mob then took the truck deep inside the Sitalpur forest, where some armed rebels had been waiting. They punctured the tyres of the truck and set it ablaze. “When the Maoists asked about our identities, Deepak said he was a policeman. Then they took us into another area of the dense forest on motorcycles,” said Banamali. Read the rest of this entry »
