VISAKHAPATNAM: The preliminary medical report and the witnesses’ version from Vakapalli revealed that the gang-rape had not taken place, said SP Akun Sabharwal on Wednesday. The CPI (Maoist), their frontal organisations must realise the fact and stop false propaganda against the police, Dr. Sabharwal said in a press release.

The Maoist party could not stomach the fact that the police force was receiving good support from the people in agency area and was killing the Girijans after branding them as informers, he said. In this case the Girijan women appeared to have been forced to make a false allegation against the policemen, the SP felt. In another press release Deputy SP of Paderu said the people’s representatives might succumb to the pressure exerted by the Maoists but the police would never fear the Maoists, while dismissing the warning issued by the CPI (Maoist) leader Ganesh to the SI of Sileru. The official said the police had never insulted the Girijan women.
