Constant vigil on Naxalite movements in the state

H N Satyanarayan Rao, inspector general of police (IGP), western range while talking to the reporters here on Monday, said that police had maintained constant vigil on Naxalite movements in the state. They had trapped the source of food supply to the naxalites for whom the deep forest was the home. He said the police department had launched an awareness programme in the Naxalite infested districts of Udupi, Chikmagalur and Shimoga against the Naxalite activities.

He also added that Naxalite activities in the state had declined considerably for the past six months after the death of Divakar, a Naxalite in a police encounter.

Rao said that security concept had changed today with the threat perception of Naxalite and terrorist attack prevailing in the state. In view of that police security needed re-orientation. He said that the identity of the women Naxalite who was arrested at Amasebail in Kundapur taluk of Udupi district on Sunday by the police belonging to Shankarnarayan police station had been traced.

The interrogation revealed that her real name was Chennamma although she was known as Uma in the Naxalite circle. Twenty-year-old girl belonging to a place in Mundargi taluk of Haveri district was motivated by the revolutionary songs sung by few naxalites in Davangere three years ago. Since then a Naxalite by name Padmanabha was in constant touch with her. She joined the Naxalite cadre during the last rainy season.

A group of stage artistes from Manipal had been enacting a drama 'Hasiru Nadinalli Kempu Hadi (Red road on the green land)' in different places of these districts as a part of awareness programmes. Awareness camps were being organized and vocational training course arranged to motivate the youth influenced by naxalism to join the main stream. Army recruitments camps were being arranged in these districts, he added.      Sahil online
