Kothagudem: Maoist leadership was trying to kill a female naxal who left the CPI (Maoist) party recently, the district police said.
A statement from Superintendent of Police here on Sunday said Madakam Chukki of Battigudem village in Cherla mandal, who worked in Cherla local organisation squard (LOS), came out the party due to alleged harassment and torture by the Maoists.
The Maoist leadership, which feared several other cadres in the party might follow in her footsteps, was now trying to capture and eliminate her. Making the serious allegation against the Maoists, the police said: “There is not much difference between ISIS terrorists and Maoists when it comes to dealing with women and minors serving the party.”
The police appealed to the Human Rights, Women Rights and Child Rights organisations and their activists to come forward to protect tribal children and women from the hands of the Maoists.
They also appealed to the Maoists to surrender and lead a better life
