Say Ganapati has no property in his native Beerpur village

Following the directive from Kolkata National Investigation Agency (NIA) court to seize and attach the properties of top Maoist leaders, the Karimnagar district revenue authorities visited the Bheerpur village of Sarangapur mandal on Saturday and found that Maoists’ supremo Muppala Laxman Rao alias Ganapathi did not have any properties in his native village of Bheerpur.

However, the revenue authorities said that they had seized and attached 1.37 acres of land that belonged to Maoists central committee member Balmuri Narayana Rao in the village and handed over the same to the NIA authorities. Sarangapur tahsildar G. Srinivas Rao, along with revenue and police officials, visited the Bheerpur village on Saturday and conducted inquiry into properties of Maoist leaders.

To their shock, the revenue authorities did not find any property of Ganapathi, who had left the village some four decades ago and had been leading underground life. NIA inspector Raja Subramanyam Raju was also present.
