Woman led the Gadchiroli attack

Posted by Admin on October 10, 2009

488650373_21bdb65cf4LAHERI/ GADCHIROLI: Woman power was at work for the Naxals who handed over the cops’ biggest ever loss close to Laheri sub-police station in Gadchiroli on Thursday. Tarakka, wife of central committee member and Maharashtra in-charge Mullajhola Venugopal, alias Bhupati, in her capacity as south Gadchiroli division committee member, was learnt to be involved in planning the operation and also led the rebels in action.

Tarakka, in her forties, is learnt to be a sharp-minded leader whose association with the movement and experience of the terrain are critical. Sources said that Tarakka ensured that her side won the mindgame as well. “We heard her abusing the cops over the wireless set they had looted during the encounter. Her threatening voice was heard over the entire network,” said a cop adding that she constantly urged the cops to surrender. Slogans like “Policewale surrender ho jao’ and ‘Jai Beenagonda’ were also repeatedly raised by the rebels during the encounter.

“Tarakka being the divisional committee member had to be an integral part of the entire mission. These company dalams have a large number of women cadres. Around 40 women may have been part of the operation on Thursday,” said a cop from Gadchiroli police. Tarakka once lived in Aheri and was part of local dalam.

Apart from Tarakka’s, intelligence wing feels that dreaded fighter Eaitu, commander-in-chief of the company dalam and member of Dandakaranya special zonal committee, was also instrumental in the operation. In fact, said an intelligence source, Eaitu (who is a man) was shifted to South Gadchiroli from Madh region to strengthen the movement here.

Giridhar, commander of company dalam no. four and divisional committee member of South Gadchiroli, is also learnt to have played a key role in the attack. Komti Dugga Lekami, alias Rakesh, also played a crucial part as commander of company dalam no. seven of Chhattisgarh border. The encounter took place just 20 km from Chhattisgarh border. TOI
