Adilabad: Superintendent of Police Vishnu S Warrier urged the public not to extend support to banned Maoists. He warned that stringent action would be taken against those who show sympathy and help the ultras.
In a press statement, issued on Monday, Warrier requested the public not to extend cooperation to the extremists by trusting their words. He stated that the prohibited Maoists were trying to prove their existence in the district which was once their stronghold. He pleaded with them civilians to oppose the attempts of the red brigade.
The IPS officer further said that the Maoists were still propagating outdated ideologies, while the entire world was embracing digital life. He alleged that they were extracting huge sums from contractors and were relying on gullible tribals for food and shelter. He suggested them join the mainstream and to avail rehabilitation packages.
The Superintendent sought support from the public to policemen who were striving hard for wiping out the Maoists, braving odds such as heavy downpours. He wanted them to share information of movement of the extremists and cash rewards would be given to informants. He assured their identity would not be disclosed
