The tribals were stranded as Barikaraoguda village was isolated following a stream which was in spate due to heavy rains in upstream areas
Adilabad: Police and Integrated Tribal Development Agency (ITDA)-Utnoor jointly distributed groceries to 250 tribals who were stranded in Barikaraoguda village in Narnoor mandal on Saturday, facing hardships. The tribals were isolated following a stream which was in spate due to heavy rains in upstream areas.
On coming to know about the plight of the tribals, Narnoor Inspector K Prem Kumar shared the information with the in-charge Superintendent of Police M Rajesh Chandra and ITDA Utnoor Project Officer Bhavesh Mishra. As per instructions of Rajesh and Mishra, Prem Kumar and his team, authorities of ITDA shifted groceries to the tribals by a bullock cart. They gave away the essentials to the residents of the village.
The policemen and the officials of the ITDA Revenue Department assured the tribals of all help. They advised the ethnic tribes not to venture to come out of the village, considering the torrential rains. They advised them to drink hot and filtered water to prevent seasonal diseases. They also gave tarpaulins and plastic covers to stay dry from rains.
The team of cops and authorities had to wade through the stream, which was suddenly flooded due to downpours when they were returning from the tiny tribal habitation. They managed to cross the water body using ropes provided by residents of another village and reached Narnoor mandal centre. They were lauded by the Superintendent of Police for risking their lives to reach out to the needy.
