Cops fear Maoists’ comeback in Telangana

Hyderabad: With Maoists attempting to regain their foothold in Telangana, vigil has been stepped up in border districts of Khammam (Telangana-Chhattisgarh border) and Karimnagar (Telangana-Maharashtra border), especially after last week’s encounter. With a renewed strategy of Maoists moving in groups of around 20, police are not taking any chance. In the latest encounter, which took place a few kilometres away from Khammam in the neighbouring Chhattisgarh state, nearly 50 Maoists were holding a camp before an encounter with police in which eight Maoists were killed. In the last few years, Maoists were nearly wiped out from Telangana except for sporadic instances of a few naxals moving in the area.
Ever since, a separate state committee was formed for Telangana, the extremists were desperately making attempts to enter the state. In this connection, they had tried to enter the state with a reasonably large group, around 15 members, but encountered police in Karimnagar a few months back. Similarly, the group was big when an encounter took place in Warangal, in which three Maoists, including a woman, died during a gun battle. The banned outfit has been making attempts to enter the state from Chhattisgarh or Maharashtra in groups, which would give them some firepower to counter the men in khaki. However, till date, the naxals could not make any foray or regain their foothold in Telangana.
When asked about the Maoist bid to move in groups, director-general of police Anurag Sharma said, “It is true that Maoists are renewing efforts to enter the state again. Prior to the recent encounter, 14 members came into the state during an encounter with police in Karimnagar. We will stall their bid to enter the state.” The recent camp of Maoists in Chhattisgarh, close to Khammam district, was to chalk out a strategy to organize strikes or stage abductions in the state. Though the Telangana government wanted to start a regional unit of the elite Greyhounds in Warangal district, the proposal is yet to take off as the central government failed to fund the project.
