Cases registered against them in various police stations in Wayanad

Wayanad police chief Putta Vimaladitya on Saturday issued a lookout circular (LOC) against 10 suspected Maoists in connection with cases registered against them in various police stations in the district.

The police identified the Maoists as Vikram Gowda; Latha; Kanya, alias Kanyakumari; Sundari; Roopesh; Sinoj; Jayanna; Ravi alias Raveendra; Jagadeesha; and Velmurugan.

The first sighting of the Maoists was reported at Karimkanni Kattunayakka colony in the Padinharethara police station limits on August 14, 2013. The tribespeople of the colony reported that Maoist activists under the Western Ghat special zone committee had disbursed pamphlets, and organised a class for them nearly three days ago.

Though nearly seven such instances were reported at various places under the Vythiri, Meppadi, Padinharethara, and Vellamunda police station limits in seven months, the police were yet to find any evidence of the Maoists presence.

The last incident in the series was at Kodampara colony at Kunhome in the Vellamunda police station limits on February 5 this year.

Mr. Vimaladitya said the Maoists were wanted in many cases registered in police stations in the district. They had been charged under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, and Section 25 of the Arms Act.
