Kundapur: Naxalites Threaten to Blast Shankarnarayana Police Station

Daijiworld News Network - Kundapur (GA)

Kundapur, Sep 3: The Naxalites are hitting the headlines once again. This time they are seen in Shankarnarayana after a gap of almost 3 months. The locals said that they are going about in disguise.

A group of 15 Naxalites visited an agriculturist’s house at Rattadi near here and conducted a meeting. They even said that they are yet to avenge the death of two of their colleagues who died in a police encounter, a couple of months ago. They also asked the villagers to support them. They even said that they are prepared to blast the Shankarnarayana police station.

It is said that life has been difficult for Naxalites in Hebri, Chikmagalur and adjacent areas where people are opposing them and have formed various forums in order to chase out Naxalites. So they have moved over to Shankarnarayana and other remote areas near Kundapur to take shelter. It is said that a group of 30 Naxalites possessing sophisticated arms are going about in the forest areas of Shankarnarayana, Amavasebail etc.

So the residents of Rattadi, Amavasebail, Devarbal etc are in a state of dilemma and panic. They do not want to support the Naxalites nor would they like to be friendly with them. On the other hand the continuous round-ups and probes by Anti Naxal Force too are bothering them a lot. The locals said that even after knowing about the Naxal movements in these areas, the police are not doing anything substantial to curb the menace. They are complaining that ANF is busy probing people instead of carrying out combing operation.
