Tension at MGM Hospital

Amid heavy police bandobust, post mortem was conducted on the slain naxals at the MGM Hospital here on Wednesday. Tension prevailed for some time as the police did not allow the parents of the deceased naxals to have a glimpse. They, along with other relatives and activists of different organisations staged a demonstration at the hospital mortuary. Following court intervention, parents were allowed to see the bodies before the post mortem was conducted. Police cordoned off the area around mortuary. Despite prohibitory orders, large number of people gathered at the mortuary. Civil Liberties’ activists, members of Revolutionary Poets Association, Naxal martyrs’ relatives association and others arrived at the hospital raising slogans and dubbing the encounter ‘fake’.

Two naxals Sruthi alias Mahitha and Vidyasagar Reddy alias Sagar were killed in the exchange of fire with the police on Tuesday at Rangapur forest area in Govindaraopet mandal. The bodies were shifted to MGM Hospital late in the night. After post mortem, they were handed over to the relatives. Those who gathered at the mortuary took out a procession for a while near the hospital. Revolutionary poet Varavara Rao, Madiga Reservation Porata Samithi (MRPS) leader Manda Krishna Madiga and others visited the hospital.
