shruthiSagarFuneralDubbing the encounter as `fake’, revolutionary poet Varavara Rao alleged that police tortured brutally and killed both the Maoist party naxals – Sruthi and Vidyasagar Reddy. He broke down and wailed inconsolably holding sisters of slain Maoist Sruthi alias Mahitha at the MGM Hospital mortuary. Demanding the State Government own up the responsibility, he said that youth were being attracted to the revolutionary movement as the KCR’s Government failed to keep up its promises leave alone implementing the much-talked Maoist party agenda. “None asked him to implement Maoist party agenda. He himself claimed it. We all want the Government to function as per Constitution – giving people a chance to speak, express and differ,” he said. According to intelligence reports, a total of 36 persons joined the Maoist party since the separate Telangana was formed. Scores of youth were disillusioned with the promises and functioning of the TRS Government. Mr. KCR promised a Telangana free from encounters. “KCR promised a heaven and nothing short of it. What is happening in Telangana is visible to all. In Warangal district alone, nearly 1,500 acres of land is being illegally mined by contractors.

The tribals were questioning the government and young men driven by ideals are standing by these innocent tribals. Hence they are being killed in fake encounters,” Mr. Varavara Rao said. The people of Telangana did not ask for gold or anything from Mr. KCR. All they want is peace, water for irrigation, land for cultivation and nothing else. Those labouring hard are denied their rights and fruits of labour. Those sitting in Parliament and Assembly supporting the contractors are making lots of money depriving the poor of their land. “What happened to the promise of three acres of land to the SCs. Who is questioning the Government on this promise,” he said urging the people and the media to stand up and question the Government.

Karimnagar on High Alert After Warangal Maoist Encounter
KARIMNAGAR: In the wake of the encounter in the neighbouring Warangal district, the Karimangar police sounded high alert in the district and intensified combing operations in the forest between Karimnagar and Warangal districts. Police fear that the Maoists might sneak into the district after the exchange of fire. Soon after the news of the encounter, several special party policemen were also rushed to the forest on the eastern part of the district which is adjacent to Chhattisgarh border. Karimnagar OSD L Subbarayudu told Express that they are suspecting that some Maoists, who were injured in the exchange of fire in Warangal district, may have managed to flee from the shootout site and sneaked into Karimnagar border.
Police believe that the Karimnagar, Khammam and Warangal (KKW) division secretary Bade Chokka Rao alias Damodar was present at the encounter site and managed to escape. In the recent past, pamphlets surfaced at a culvert between Singaram and Stambampalli villages in Mahamuttaram mandal threatening the landlords and ruling party political leaders. Since then, police kept a tight vigil and reportedly came to know that the Maoists resumed activities under the aegis of Damodar and another senior leader Kankanala Raji Reddy alias Venkatesh.
On September 10 when deputy commander Katrevula Lingaiah surrendered before the police, district SP D Joel Davis said they were suspecting Maoist movement in the border areas. Meanwhile, police have also alerted local politicians in Manthani division, who were on the radar of Maoists and took up vehicle checkings on Bhoopalapalli (Warangal) – Kataram (Karimnagar) highway.

Two Maoists killed in Warangal encounter
The Naxals were identified as Sruthi alias Mahitha (23), native of Waddepally, Hanamkonda and an engineering graduate, and Vidyasagar Reddy alias Sagar (32). In what is described as the first encounter in newly- formed Telangana State, two Maoists were killed in an exchange of fire with the police in thick forests of Rangapuram village in the wee hours of Tuesday. The Naxals were identified as Sruthi alias Mahitha (23), native of Waddepally, Hanamkonda and an engineering graduate, and Vidyasagar Reddy alias Sagar (32), native of Dharmasagar mandal of Warangal district.
It is suspected that Karimnagar- Khammam-Warangal (KKW) Maoist party secretary Damodar and several others managed to escape from the spot. Police recovered two weapons – one .303 and a carbine and several kit bags —from the scene. Camp found The spot – Moddugutta, a hillock — was 10 km deep inside the forest and the Naxals fell to police bullets near a stream. There was a plastic tent, medical kits, kit bags and revolutionary literature at the spot. Several lunch boxes were tied to trees around indicating that several Maoists were probably camping there for some time.
Superintendent of Police (Rural) A.K. Jha said on a tip-off that some armed squads were moving in villages abutting the forest areas, police had stepped up combing across the district. “Our police party spotted a group of naxals in the Rangapuram forest area. The naxals opened fire and the police retaliated. Two Naxals were found dead after firing stopped. Combing operations are still on,” he told The Hindu .

Fake encounter, allege parents
The parents of Sruthi, Sudarshanam and Rama Devi, alleged that their daughter was killed in a fake encounter. They told the media that their daughter was arrested, tortured and killed in a cruel manner by the police. “She joined the Maoists to achieve people’s Telangana and to fight for the poor Adivasis. Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao, Ministers and the police should own responsibility for her death,” Sudarshanam said. Meanwhile, the parents of Vidyasagar Reddy alias Sagar remained silent over the death of their son. Sagar, who completed tenth class, used to work as a car driver and worked with a private seeds company before joining the Maoist party just one month back, the parents said.
