DECCAN CHRONICLE | DC Correspondent
WARANGAL: A letter issued on Monday in the name of banned Maoist group action team members Badhru and Venkatesh caused panic among ruling BRS leaders and residents of the agency area in Eturnagaram mandal of Mulugu district.
In the letter, the Maoists warned BRS town president Mohammad Khaza Pasha, as well as leaders Chippa Ashok and Kunuru Mahesh, to change their ways or face punishment in a public court. It also stated that forest officials are filing false cases and harassing innocent people and that they must change their ways immediately.
Persons acting as police informers must also change their ways and stop providing information to police officials. If police officials do not halt their operations in the forests, the Maoists will not spare any BRS leader from the village to the district level, the letter said.
Meanwhile, police officials who learned from the Intelligence Department that some Maoists from Chhattisgarh had entered the Venkatapuram, Wazedu, and Eturnagaram mandals of Mulugu district intensified combing operations in the forest regions with greyhound police officials.
They notified the ruling BRS leaders and asked them to either relocate to a safer location or refrain from leaving their villages or attending any programme without the knowledge of police officials.
