Naxalite leaders on fast, want status of political prisoners

Posted by Admin on August 16, 2009

23naxalRajahmundry,(AP): Jailed Maoist leaders and Janasakthi Naxalites have gone on fast-unto death in the central prison in Rajahmundry, in East Godavari District of Andhra Pradesh demanding special treatment like political prisoners.

Human Rights Council president and advocate Muppala Subbarao told today the Janasakthi state secretary Vemula Veeresam, Maoist Guntur area commander Zaheer, his deputy Mariadas and some other Naxalities have been on a hunger strike for the last four days demanding status of political prisoners.

The jailed leaders have asked for proper accommodation in the jail , release on parole and medical facilities.

Subbarao alleged that the central prison authorities were subjecting them to harassment.

The jail can take only 1,409 inmates but presently about 2,000 prisoners have been accommodated. There are no basic facilities . 20 prisoners died of poor health in the jail last year, he added.

Among the prisoners in the jail , as many as 45 members are suffering from HIV/AIDS, 54 are mentally challenged and 11 suffering from tuberculosis, he said. Samay Live
