Corridor planned for safe passage of top Maoists

Special Correspondent

ONGOLE: The CPI (Maoist) is planning to build a corridor from Giddalur in Prakasam district to Anantapur through Nallamala forest for free movement of its top leaders with security.

It also has plans to attack three police stations and target 10 persons including three poor tribals. It also plans to bring all its frontal organisations under one umbrella and put one district committee member in charge of it and start the Radical Democratic Front.

Police got this vital information through diaries recovered from the place of encounter at Magutur thanda in Ardhaveedu mandal, Prakasam district on November 17.

Speaking to newspersons on Monday, Superintendent of Police N. Balasubrahmanyam said 35 Maoists were holding a military camp at the place when the police raided it.

The Maoists escaped after blasting landmines and exchanging fire with police. Police recovered huge communication equipment, arms and 35 kit bags, which contained diaries and documents containing vital information, he said.

The documents revealed the plans of the Maoists to observe Tactical Counter Offensive Campaign (TCOC) during August-September this year.

But they gave up the plans, as the police had killed four naxals, who had made an abortive bid to eliminate the then Superintendent of Police Mahesh Chandra Laddha at Ongole on April 27, in three different encounters.

Persons in the hit list have been alerted and their security beefed up.

He said the Maoists were now targeting Keerthipati Rambabu alias Ramesh, an accused in the SP attack case.

The party wanted to bring Kula Vyathireka Porata Samithi, Cheneta Karmika Samakhaya, Gudisevasula Sangham and other frontal organisations under one umbrella.
