Mumbai After a series of warrants issued by the Gondia sessions court against suspected Naxalites Vernon Gonsalves and Shreedhar Shrinivasan — they have not been produced in court for several hearings—a sessions court has directed the state to shift them to Gondia jail, from Taloja jail in Thane district.

The Gondia police have filed chargesheets against them in three cases so far. There are around nine cases pending against them in Vidarbha alone.

The duo have been charged for waging war and indoctrinating men to wage war against the country. They along with two other accused— Arun Ferreira and Murali Sattya Reddy— were also charged for secession and collecting money for hatching a criminal conspiracy along with continuing with activities of organised crime syndicate. Maximum punishment for waging war is death penalty.

Gonsalves and Shrinivasan, who are presently at Taloja jail in Thane district, will soon be shifted to Gondia jail to expedite the case pending there.

“It will help us expedite the case. As the cases are heard in routine courts, there has hardly been any development. Also, Ferreira and Reddy, who were charged in similar such cases in Gondia, have been acquitted. So we are hopeful now,” said Gonsalves’ wife Advocate Susan Gonsalves who filed a petition before the Bombay High Court. Read the rest of this entry »

Legacy of Com.Amulya Sen and the Maoist Communist Centre

Charu Majumdar and Kanhai Chaterjee

Charu Majumdar and Kanhai Chaterjee

In October,1908 Co.Amulya Sen was born.This year thus commemorates his 100th birth anniversary year.He made a historic contribution to The Indian Communist Movement and with Com.Kanhai Chaterjee ,he was the founder of he Maoist Communist Centre which was formed I October 20th 1969.Soon In October it will b the 40th aniversary year of the formation of the Maoist Communist Centre.This organization is one of the constituents of the historically formed C.P.I(Maoist) in 2004.Kanhai Chaterjee literally lived and breathe revolution.Few Orgaisnationjs I hehistory of he Comunst Movement have launches such daring actions on the enemies.It si a tribute to he outstanding tenacity o their comrades that they survived for 35 years,traversing every thorn in the bush.

It was his innovative thinking that made him critical of Charu Mazumdar’s C.P.I(M.L.)and it’s tactical line of individual annihilation. Comrade K.C.chalked out a path for the M.C.C whereby they formulated a strategy of heir own. The methods of work they adopted resembled Comrade Mao Tse Tung’s Red Army in the revolutionary war. Few revolutionary books or observers cannot remember their striking similarity with the Chinese Peoples Liberation Corpses, particularly he way they fled to the mountains. It was Comrade Kanhai Chaterjee who believe staunchly that the time was not appropriate for the forming of the party.He felt their had to be greater development in the revolutionary movement to form a party. In his view first an agrarian revolutionary movement had to be launched. Today it is significant that both the Charu Mazumar C.P.I(M.L) and the Maoist Communist Centre are recognized as the founding parties and not just Charu Mazumdar’s party.(The Peoples War and Party Unity Groups staunchly defended the Charu Mazumdar Party as the re-organised party.)

Imphal, Sept. 8: A truck driver who lay on the ground and escaped army bullets in Ukhrul last evening has contradicted the forces’ story of an “operation”, triggering yet another “fake encounter” protest in Manipur, this time by the Kuki community. Troops of 12 Maratha Light Infantry gunned down four Kuki Liberation Army cadres and a civilian truck driver at Mokot Chepu in the Litan area of Ukhrul and recovered six weapons around 6pm along Imphal-Ukhrul Road.

Kuki Liberation Army happens to be in a suspension of operation agreement with the security forces. The army handed over all the five bodies to Litan police station this morning, besides a huge cache of arms. An LMG with 10 rounds of ammunition, an M-16 rifle with nine rounds, an M-22 rifle with nine rounds, an AK-47 with 22 rounds, a G-3 rifle with 20 rounds, a carbine with 16 rounds and a grenade comprised the arms haul.

AMSU to boycott classes from today Against the killing spree unleashed by the Govt

Posted by Admin on September 9, 2009


Source: The Sangai Express

Imphal, September 08, 2009: Against the alleged killing spree unleashed under the rule of Chief Minister Okram Ibobi, the All Manipur Students’ Union has decided to launch indefinite class boycott of schools all over the State from tomorrow.

A press release issued by the student body asserted that the situation has come to such a pass that any one can fall victim to a fake encounter, stray bullets, any time, anywhere. There have been several instances when innocent persons were killed right in front of their family. In other cases, many people picked up from their own homes/localities by security personnel have been branded UG cadres after killing them at some other places in fake encounters.

Many students have already fallen victims to such fake encounters and extra-judicial killings, it alleged. When death is hanging over the head of all the people including students, it has become a big question whether the student community should continue with their studies or join the people’s movement. Rather than waiting to be killed in fake encounters, the student community too will join the mass movement for a secure future.

Since O Ibobi assumed the office of Chief Minister in 2002, thousands of people have been killed in fake encounters, it alleged. The July 23 fake encounter was only the sparking point of the people’s fury. Instead of paying any heed to the people’s demand for his resignation, punishment of guilty commandos as well as police officers who tried to cover up the killings, unconditional release of the Apunba Lup activists, repeal of AFSPA etc, Chief Minister seemed more interested in recruitment of additional police forces.

By deploying commandos in both uniform and civilian fatigue at the schools, the Government has been forbidding students from taking out any form of democratic movement against the extra-judicial killings, the AMSU said.For all the fake encounters and extra-judicial killings perpetrated under the immunity guaranteed by AFSPA, Chief Minister Ibobi should be held responsible. Saying that it would be launching various democratic movements under the leadership of the Apunba, the student body called indefinite class boycott in schools all over the state from tomorrow.

Orissa highway still blockaded to protest arrest of villagers

Posted by Admin on September 9, 2009


IANS September 9th, 2009

BHUBANESWAR – A road blockade in Orissa launched by hundreds of people, demanding the immediate release of some villagers, has paralysed traffic along national highway number 23 in mineral rich Sundergarh district, police said Wednesday.

The protesters, mostly tribals, have blocked the road near Chandiposh village, some 60 km from the steel city of Rourkela and about 575 km from Bhubaneswar, since Tuesday. They are demanding the release of 30 villagers who were arrested as suspected Maoists from villages under Chandiposh gram panchayat Aug 29, he said.

“Hundred of vehicles have got stranded owing to the blockade. Mineral transportation has also been affected,” a senior district police official told IANS.

Police claim to have evidence that the arrested villagers were involved in several crimes, including the murder of a police officer in the region July 16, but the protesters say the accused are innocent.

“None of the arrested people was involved in any kind of Maoist activities,” human rights activist Prafulla Samantray told IANS. “Most of the arrested people are daily wage earners. As they languish in jail, their families are facing hunger.”

Local legislator George Tirkey said: “Police do not have the courage to arrest the real Maoists. They are making innocent villagers scapegoats to save their own skin.”

One of the protesters said: “We want the immediate release of the arrested people. The road blockade will end only after their release.”

Chhattisgarh: Low-flight alert over red zones

Posted by Admin on September 9, 2009


488650357_87e4ef1f30SHEENA K. & SUMAN K. SRIVASTAVA

Raipur/Ranchi, Sept. 8: The Chhattisgarh government has issued a directive to chopper and aircraft pilots not to fly too low over Maoist-hit areas of the state.

Pilots have been instructed to keep to 8,000-10,000 feet during normal days, or fly as low as 500-1,000 feet during inclement weather.

Though the decision was taken while reviewing the air-worthiness of the state’s chopper in the backdrop of YSR’s helicopter crash, officials attributed the decision to the Maoist menace.

Besides Bastar, the region of Sarguja adjoining Jharkhand is often a target of Maoist attacks. “There shall be a ban on flying too low in Maoist-hit areas,” confirmed a senior official with the aviation department. Read the rest of this entry »
