HYDERABAD : The CPI Maoists are planning to comeback with a vengeance in its erstwhile stronghold of Dandakaranya (DK) in the north Telangana region by committing major offences to make their presence felt.
The protection platoon of North Telangana Special Zone Committee (NTSZC) is moving in groups of 25 to 30 members to commit a major offence and regain their lost ground. Later, the platoon committee members would split into smaller groups and move separately to commit offences on individual targets.
These startling revelations were made by Ambir Kistaiah alias Krishna alias Shyam, commander of NTSZC protection platoon, who surrendered along with his wife, Alam Laxmi, a deputy dalam commander of Special Guerrilla Squad, here on Wednesday.
The naxalite commander said that the NTSZC meeting was held in November last and it discussed about the economic support and strengthening of the dalams. He said that there were about 50 naxalites in entire NTSZC including 28 in KKW (Karimnagar, Khammam and Warangal districts).
To a query, the surrendered naxalite said that the Chhattisgarh State police were not alert on par with the Andhra Pradesh police in tackling the naxalite menace. "The police stations in Andhra Pradesh are fortified perfectly to meet any eventuality," he said.
