Adilabad: In the remote Dedra village of Bazarhathnoor mandal, the Adilabad police is doing all it can to bring respite to the family members of a woman Maoist who had joined the party 18 years ago. On Tuesday, Superintendent of Police Vishnu S Warrier donated clothing and groceries to the family and was the chief guest of a medical camp in Bhutayi village of the same mandal.
Warrier, who was posted in Adilabad district in the wake of clashes between the Adivasis and Lambadas, is now trying to address the civic problems of rural areas by visiting isolated villages that have not seen growth and development. In his latest bid to provide some help, he has created a mineral water plant for the remote and naxal-infested habitations of Bazarhathnoor mandal, which were experiencing an acute drinking water crisis. He also distributed school uniforms to students of a government school.
On Tuesday, the IPS officer met Anjana Bai, the mother of 37-year-old Dasariwad Sumana alias Sangeetha, who works for the Maoist party as a Dandakaranya Special Zonal Committee member in Chhattisgarh. He enquired about the family’s condition after interacting with Anjana Bai. Upon getting to know of her pathetic condition, he supplied her with provisions required for a period of three months besides clothes.
Overwhelmed by the concern displayed the SP, Anjana Bai thanked him for coming to the rescue of her family. She opined that her family would be happy if Sumana comes back to them and quit the Maoist party with the Telangana Police Department becoming increasingly people-friendly. She added that they were facing several problems including financial crisis for quite a long time.
Warrier appealed to Sumana to join the mainstream and assured her that all rehabilitation incentives would be extended to her if she surrenders. He informed that Naxal movement has been wiped out in Adilabad district and asserted that there is a cash reward of Rs 5 lakh on her head.
