Azad encounter: Adilabad Lower courtʹs order set aside

 

An Adilabad court set aside the orders issued by Judicial Magistrate of I Class Court-Adilabad in 2015 in the alleged encounter of Maoist partyʹs spokesperson Cherukuri Rajkumar alias Azad and journalist Hemachandra Pandey here on Thursday.
Bharata Laxmi, Additional District Judge for Adilabad Special Court for SC, ST cases, pronounced the judgment, setting aside the orders of the lower court, following a petition filed by the wives of Azad and Pandey, after the Judicial Magistrate of I Class Court- Adilabad rejected the protest petition in 2015. She then ordered the court to take cognizance against 29 police officials who were involved in the encounter that occurred in the forests of Sarkepalli in Wankidi mandal of present Kumram Bheem Asifabad district in 2010.
The judge heard the versions of lawyers of petitioners and advocate representing Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) before giving the verdict. K Padma and Babita, wives of Azad, a member of Central Committee of Maoist party and Pandey, respectively, filed a revision petition with the court seeking its intervention in the verdict of the lower court, based on a report submitted by CBI.
The Supreme Court directed the Magistrate of I Class Court-Adilabad to allow the protest petition when family members of slain Maoist and journalist moved it in 2015. But, the lower court rejected the petition. The petitioners then approached High Court which ordered Adilabad Special Court for SC, ST cases to hear the case with regard to the encounter.
The CBI had investigated into the sensational killing of the duo and submitted a report stating that the encounter was genuine. But, members of Human rights bodies and wives of the killed raised doubts over the veracity of the incident.
Family members of Azad and Pandey expressed happiness over the verdict.

G N Saibaba writes from Nagpur Jail

7th February 2018.

A letter to dear students and my fellow teachers,
I dream of being in my classroom
day and night fettered behind
the strong iron beams
of my tiny solitary prison cell
I see you, talk to you
and hug you by the force
of my frail land challenged life
in my unchained mind’s eye
as the desire for freedom
flows through the sinews
and veins of my blood stream
even as I am caged
far away from you
Teaching is my forte’,
breath and life, you know
I embraced literature
for it clasps us with
our troubled histories,
philosophies and economics
of pangs of pain, tears,
fears and hopes
for a bright new day
The cage of lies,
seditious clauses
and conspitorial confabulations
confine and keep me away
from your intimate and critical
engagement with knowledge
and warm affection for the liberty
of the trampled earth.

Dear friends,

I have lived all my conscious life on the campuses of learning and teaching in search of knowledge, love and freedom. In the course of this search, I learnt that freedom for a few was no freedom. I began to study histories, philosophies and literatures with more eagerness and critical engagement.

That led me to look around myself closely. I travelled across and met people living in sub-human conditions. I realised that they never tasted freedom very much like me. I understood that castes and freedom can never co-exist. I began to speak to myself. Then I slowly started to speak to my fellow beings on my journey. I grasped of a great void of silence around me.

I saw a society of silence. I dashed myself against the boulders of silence. I brutally wounded myself. A vast majority of the multitudes have never been allowed to break their silence. Centuries of silence solidified in our lives below the high and barren rocks of argumentative India. I desired to break the prison house of silence. I struggled within myself. The rocks were hard to move. I realised that I carried within myself our silent society. It wasn’t an easy journey.

It was such a long journey, strenuous and painful. Eventually, I thought I gathered a voice myself. I wanted my fellow beings also to have a voice of their own so that we could converse. In the process, my voice gradually began to emerge. I bewildered to see that my voice was heard. After some time, my voice even started to rise a bit. Then, suddenly fell an axen on my throat. My voice was silenced in one stroke.

Friends, today, I reel under excruciating pain relentlessly. The closure of my voice within me exploded my crippled body from each of my organ. One after the other, my organs started bursting. The silence within me explodes into shooting pain. My vocal cords acquired lesion making my voice a thin and inaudible shrill. My heart broke with Hypertrophic cardiomayopathy.

My brain has started having blackouts with a condition called syncope. My kidneys are silted with pebbles; gallbladder gathered stones and pancreas grew a tail of pain called pancreatitis. Nerve lines in my left shoulder broke under the conditions of my arrest, named as brachial plexopathy. More and more organs of silence replaced the original. I have been living with explosive and shooting pain day in and day out.

I am living on the margins of life.
My pain, a voiceless song,
my being a nameless mote.
If only my pain could speak,
I’d know who I am.
And if myself could find its essence,
I’d unravel the mystery of this world.
If I could seize this hidden mystery,
my silence would find expression
(Faiz Ahmad Faiz)

Eleven long months have passed. I continue to languish under the brutal conditions of incarceration without any relief. I am forced to live without any human dignity and bodily integrity.

The conditions under which I am living have reduced me to sub-human and inhuman levels. You think of the crime attributed to me: I have lived for freedom, I have tried to find the voice of the voiceless and I tried to find my voice. I wrote about them, I spoke about them, those my fellow beings who are not allowed to have the voice of their own for centuries. This is my crime.

Degrading my body and mind is not simply removing humanity from me alone, it is an act of dehumanising our entire society; our civilizational existence.

I hope none of you feel sympathetic to my condition. I don’t believe in sympathy, I only believe in solidarity. I intended to tell you my story only because I believe that it is also your story. Also because I believe my freedom is your freedom.

Yours
With love and regards

People’s War affects… Let’s organize International Commitee Support People’s War in India – in all countries – it is a need Now!

 

A classification by the ministry of home affairs (MHA) on areas affected by left-wing insurgency is likely to include two districts from Kerala for the first time in the state’s history, a senior home ministry official said on condition of anonymity.
The assessment is conducted by the MHA to determine which states are eligible for reimbursement (by the federal government) of funds incurred by them to counter Left Wing Extremism (LWE).
According to the MHA, a total of 106 districts across 10 states see active left wing insurgency; of these, 35 are categorised as “worst LWE affected districts”. The home ministry official said Palakkad and Malappuram in Kerala have now been recommended by the state government to receive funds under the federal reimbursement scheme owing to increased ultra-left wing activity in both.
“Names of some districts in the worst affected list have been excluded because of the improved law and order situation there.There are some new districts that have been added including two from Kerala but the total number of worst affected districts is most likely to remain at 35,” this person said.
The inclusion and exclusion of districts in the scheme is based on their violence profile and other parameters such as intensity of violence over a period of five years, the organisational strength of various naxal outfits, the presence of armed naxal dalams (brigades) and their free movement, and finally, the extent of pro-active measures initiated by the police or administration to counter the insurgents

The MHA official did not divulge details of the other districts that have been included in or excluded from the list.
K Durgaprasad the former Director-General of the Central Armed Police Force said that there have been regular intelligence inputs for several years of attempts by Maoists to establish a base in the Kerala-Karnataka-Tamil Nadu tri junction .
The district police chief of Palakkad Dr. Srinivas A said over phone said the request for receiving central funds is not based on the law and order situation in the district but purely to strengthen the internal security mechanism.
“Though no violent incident has been reported from the two districts in 2017, there have been multiple sightings of Maoist cadres in the area coupled with intelligence reports that suggest that the insurgents are close to establishing a base in the region,” he added.

CPI Maoist Increase Military Operations Along Andhra Pradesh-Telangana Border Region

 info india press news

Tension has mounted on the Andhra Pradesh-Telangana border with the CPI(Maoists) resorting to violence during the last few days. The Central forces taking up anti-Naxal operations in the border forests have sounded an alert.
Naxalites have restricted the paramilitary forces from gaining entry into their strongholds by digging trenches and felling trees on the roads. The extremist leaders are holding meetings with the villagers in tribal pockets. With the Naxalites intensifying their movements in Chhattisgarh and Odisha, the Greyhounds parties have been alerted and combing operations stepped up. Members of the People’s Liberation Guerilla Army (PLGA) damaged the roads, blasted a bridge and injured three persons including a Cobra jawan and two civilians in the last few days.
The AP police recently stressed on deployment of more police forces to curb Naxal activities. “As the Maoist menace is an inter-State issue, we are holding discussions with our counterparts in the Naxal dominated States. The cooperation from the officers is good,” an officer said.

After arrest of seven ʹCPI (Maoist) membersʹ, teacher questioned on ʹNaxal linksʹ ends life – info received

After
DAYS AFTER he was questioned by the Maharashtra Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) in connection with the arrests of seven alleged members of the banned Communist Party of India (Maoist), Mumbai schoolteacher Prabhakar Macha committed suicide on January 23.
Close family friends said Macha, who was mourning the loss of his second wife who died recently, was dealt a double blow when investigators from the ATS came knocking on his door and grilled him and his son for a night. The ATS also seized documents from his home in Mumbaiʹs central suburbs.
ʹOn January 23, around 10.30 am, his son came running downstairs asking the security guard to call for an ambulance. His father had hanged himself from the ceiling of their bedroom. Macha, who has been working as a Telugu teacher with a Wadala school for the past 20-odd years, was a sympathiser but never an active member.

While he was disturbed by his wifeʹs death, the questioning by ATS sleuths left him disturbed. Within a couple of days of the questioning, he ended his life,ʹ said S Yadgiri, secretary of M-2 Building in Sionʹs Prateeksha Nagar where Macha lived with his family. ʹThe family is currently in Telangana to perform his last rites,ʹ added Yadgiri.
According to the FIR registered by the ATS in the case against the seven alleged CPI (Maoist) members, Machaʹs name was disclosed by arrested accused Ajay alias Mahesh Lingya Venugopalan.
However, while seven other alleged members named by Venugopalan have been arrested, Macha was allowed to go after questioning. Meanwhile, the families of the arrested men claimed they were innocent and had no links with any banned outfit or ideology.
Mamta, the wife of arrested accused Babu Shankar, said her landlord had given her notice to vacate their rented home in a slum colony in Ghatkopar. Shankar, a labour supervisor with a leading company, was among the seven arrested for alleged Maoist links.
ʹWe moved to Mumbai around seven years ago and since then my husband had been working with the company. However, after his arrest, we have been given a notice and asked to vacate the house. I have two toddlers. At such short notice, how will I be able to make alternative arrangements?ʹ Mamta said while speaking to The Indian Express. ʹMy husband has nothing to do with Naxalism or the ideology. I think he has been wrongly implicated,ʹ she said.
Family members of another arrested accused Narsayya Laxmayya Jubala shared similar thoughts. Jubala, a contractor with the same firm, was arrested by the ATS suspecting him to be an active member of the CPI (Maoist). ʹMy father works as a contractor and returned home after his duty hours. He was never into any discussions or attending any seminars or meetings. He has been falsely implicated and we hope he is discharged soon,ʹ said Usha, Jubalaʹs daughter.
While the ATS FIR does not mention any link between the arrest of the seven men and the recent Bhima Koregaon violence, the family members said ATS sleuths asked them for details of their whereabouts between December 31 and January 2. ʹMy father had travelled with me to Bengaluru on December 30 and returned the next day after dropping me at my college. On December 31 night, I had made a video call and spoke with my family members to wish them for the new year. The ATS had asked for details on his whereabouts during this period and we have submitted the online tickets and other details to support our stand,ʹ said Usha.
Mamata said her husband had visited Bhima Koregaon but had left on December 31 and returned the following day. ʹHe went there along with some of his colleagues. After the ATS quizzed us, we informed them about the same,ʹ added Mamta.
In the FIR, the ATS has said the arrested accused were looking to recruit more individuals from Maharashtra and Gujarat. The investigators believe Maoists want to spread their ideology in the industrial belt across the two states — the ʹGolden Corridorʹ. The seven accused have been booked under sections of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967. The ATS has said Maoist literature and CDs were recovered from the arrested accused.
