Police reported an extended encounter with Maoists on September 2 near Madhupur in which allegedly 2 Maoists were killed, and two others were arrested.

However, the PSBJC has asserted that the persons arrested and killed were all common villagers, supporters of PSBJC who were attending a rally called to protest the rape of a adivasi woman by the police. The police allegedly raped the woman by entering her house in the name of search-operation. The rally was reportedly 12,000 strong and unarmed when police started firing on the people without provocation. The PSBJC fully rejected the news of the encounter, stating it to be completely fabricated.

According to the police and administration, on September 2 there had been a 4-hour long gun battle between the combined forces and the Maoists near Madhupur village as a result of which two Maoists have been killed and two others have been arrested. On Thurssday, September 3, the two arrested people, Ajay Sana and Gautam Mahato, were produced in court where they were remanded to seven days of judicial custody. Read the rest of this entry »

In a daring threat leaving the CPI (M) leaders in Patikabari in a tizzy, the Maoist rebels pasted posters on the wall of their party’s local committee office on Friday morning. The hand written posters has threatened to eliminate CPI (M) leaders unless police atrocities with their close nexus are stopped. No local CPI (M) leaders were found to comment on the posters. Locals also refused to speak on the issue. Similar posters were also found at the local bus stand, fish market, Patikiabari girls’ school and in front of the residence of the recently killed party leader Asit Sarkar. According the intelligence report the Maoists have been using various areas under Nakashipara block, in particular as their strategic base. Despite killing a number of CPI (M) leaders and supporters, the police has so far could not arrest any important Maoist rebel from the area.

YSR search bares ‘peril’ of Maoist combat

Security men in action during the Lalgarh operation

New Delhi, Sept. 10: The desperate effort mounted to trace Y.S.R. Reddy’s chopper in the Nallamala forests last week has had a chilling side effect — the security establishment has realised that for all the high talk on an all-out assault on Naxalites, it is abysmally low on preparedness.

“We commandeer all our resources on land and in the skies and still take more than 24 hours to locate a chief minister’s helicopter whose broad route is known. I think we should not even think about opening a front against Maoist rebels, much less talk about it,” a top police officer, who has been in discussions with the Centre on combating Naxalites, told The Telegraph.

“We can have skirmishes with the Naxalites… but we are in no position to talk about an offensive to the finish, it will be perilous and foolhardy.” Read the rest of this entry »

A landmine blast

Bhubaneswar, Sept. 10: Supporting an ongoing tribal agitation demanding release of 30 suspected Maoists, rebels triggered a series of blasts late last night and called a 24-hour shutdown today.

Twenty armed rebels blew up railway tracks on the Rourkela-Barasua route and damaged another at Roxy station hitting train services between Rourkela and Barasua. “Landmines were detonated at eight places between Bimlagarh and Patasahi. Explosions were also triggered at an abandoned police outpost, a community centre, a Centre of Indian Trade Unions office and at a Durga mandap at Kalta and Toda,” said Rourkela SP Diptesh Pattnaik.

Mahasweta blows the bugle against land acquisition

Posted by Admin on September 11, 2009

[Mahasweta_Devi.jpg]BHUBANESWAR: Noted writer and social activist Mahasweta Devi has extended her support to the ongoing agitation across Orissa against land
acquisition by the state government for different mega projects.

In a press release issued here, the writer expressed shock that the government had been on an alleged land grabbing spree for projects “snuffing the future and livelihood of the poor.”

On the Vedanta university project in Puri, she wondered why the government had been acquiring the land of Jagannath and others. “If this gets a sanction, what will happen to India’s other heritage sites? I will personally come time and again to demand that the project be scrapped,” she said. She described the project, for which the state government is trying to acquire 6,000 acres of land and has been facing stiff resistance, as “loot”. “Large tracks of agriculture land is being taken by the government in the name of an imaginary university,” she said.

Mahasweta Devi had come to the city and visited the tribal school functioning on the KIIT campus. “I heard about Sundargarh, Kalahandi’s Lanjigarh-Niyamgiri tribals. I am sorry to say, no government should behave with the simple-hearted, nature-loving tribals in an inhuman manner. Be it West Bengal’s Lalgarh or Orissa’s Sundargarh, I am with the tribals, with the cause of the people,” she said in the release. Read the rest of this entry »
