FOUR HEAVY vehicles owned by ESSR Company were burnt

FOUR HEAVY vehicles owned by ESSR Company were burnt by suspected maoists at Chitrakonda of Malkangiri district on Wednesday, in protest against the police atrocities and also not spending the money by the company under Peripheral Development Scheme. However, the multinational ESSR Company did not lodge any complaint with the police due to fear from the naxals. The police officials confirmed the incident is true but received no complaint from the company officials, the police said.

The ESSR multinational, transporting iron ore from Balidela iron ore project to Visakhapatnam through pipes, laid couple of years back acquiring the tribal land and inside the Reserve Forest area.

The naxals also blew up the Police Outpost at Mohupadar under Mathili block of Malkangiri district. Altogether, six police outposts were blown up by the naxals within one and half year in Malkangiri district. Almost all the police stations in Malkangiri district are manned by sticks without arms and ammunition out of fear from the naxals.
