Hunt on for Chasi Mulia leader Nachika Linga

Posted by Admin on November 23, 2009

OUR CORRESPONDENT

Bhubaneswar, Nov. 22: Police are on the lookout for Nachika Linga, the leader of the Maoist-sponsored Chasi Mulia Adivasi Sangha (CMAS) and the man suspected to have led Friday’s loot attempt at Narayanpatna police station.

Police, however, managed to arrest six CMAS activists today.

The arrests led to further tension in the region following which five companies of security forces, drawn from the CRPF, IRB, Cobra, Orissa Special Strike Force and District Armed Police Reserve were deployed in the area.

“Those arrested were present during the protest and the later attack. Interrogation is on,” said Koraput deputy superintendent of police P.K. Sahani refusing to divulge the names of those arrested.

The activists killed in Friday’s police firing were identified as Wadeka Singana and Nachika Andrew. Singana, the “military chief” of CMAS, allegedly snatched an AK-47 and firearm from the sentry.

He had also tried to attack the inspector with a sharp weapon. His death is a big blow to the outfit and police fear that CMAS might retaliate.

The second person killed in the firing, Andrew, was a native of Baliaput village, home to Nachika Linga. Both bodies were handed over to the families today after autopsy.

The families came forth to claim the bodies only after the police assured them that they were not going to be backlisted.

Meanwhile, combing operations in the area were intensified and a high alert was sounded in Laxmipur and Bandhugaon. At least three persons have been detained in these two places for interrogation.

Village markets continued to be shut while transport came to a standstill.

“The situation is under control,” asserted Sanjib Panda, the deputy inspector-general of police (south-western range), adding that Section 144Cr of the IPC was on in Narayanpatna and neighbouring areas.

CMAS’s office was sealed yesterday and motorcycles, allegedly taken from residents by sangh members, were seized by the police. Though there has been no retaliation, locals said the tribal outfit has been making quiet efforts to garner support. TT
