Karkala: Naxal Activity in Mutlupady Village raises Apprehensions

Daijiworld Media Network - Karkala (SP)

Karkala, Mar 26: On Wednesday morning, various handwritten wall-posters were found to have been stuck to bus shelter, public well and walls, supposedly by the naxals. It is thought, that they were pasted on the previous night.

The posters seek better wages for workers, payment of wages without any discrimination between male and female workers and wants political parties which chant the mantra of development to be severely punished. Some pamphlets were also found, issued in the name of CPI (Maoists) dated May 23, 2008, in which the naxals have sought to justify their action in killing Seetanadi Bhoja Shetty some months back.

After a motor bike belonging to a villager here had been burnt down some time back, the Anti Naxal Force personnel had intensified their vigil in the village. Thereafter, the naxal movement had become very scarce.

It is suspected, that a gang of seven or eight armed naxals had visited the village at around midnight. The villagers however feign ignorance, at the same time admitting that dogs of the village had intensified barking. The villagers are worried about the police questioning and the need to face the ire of the naxals thereafter, if ever they suspect that information about them had been leaked by someone in the village.
