The CPI (Maoist) organised a meeting during the weekly shandy at Korukonda in the Visakha Agency on Sunday, where they wanted people to support and participate in the Bharat bandh they called on October 11.

Maoists gave the bandh call to protest against the “arrest” of one of its top leaders and member of the Andhra-Orissa border special zonal committee Damodar alias Azad 15 days ago by the Andhra Pradesh police on the Andhra-Orissa border.

Narendra, leader of the Korukonda area committee of the CPI (Maoist), said during the meeting that there was a possibility of Damodar being killed in custody and demanded that the police produce Damodar in court. He warned that the government would pay a heavy price if Damodar was not produced in court.
