Kothagudem: The outlawed CPI (Maoist) Party leadership was unable to digest the facts about the atrocities and acts of extortion they were committing, stated the Superintendent of Police (SP) Sunil Dutt.
The SP, in statement here on Tuesday, refuted the allegations levelled by a Maoist leader, Mahesh, who released a statement to the press objecting to DGP M Mahender Reddy’s assertion that top Maoist leaders Damodar and Haribhushan were living a luxurious life while making the tribals scapegoats.
“The DGP has not said anything new, and what he said has already been confirmed by Maoist Central Committee leaders like Jampanna and others on many occasions in the past. It is in everyone’s knowledge that the Maoists extort money from contractors and businessmen,” he said.
He said it was not new for the Maoists to kill tribals branding them as police informers, burning the machinery to thwart road construction works in agency areas and torturing the labourers engaged in the work.
The Maoists used to write letters in the name of unknown persons to extort money, and Mahesh who issued a statement against the DGP, was an unknown person and he was not able to mention even his designation in the party in his statement, Dutt pointed out.
There was no need for the Maoists to teach the police morals about their duty. The Maoists whose ideology was outdated should wake up, stop deceiving the public and join the mainstream life, the SP noted.
