KAKINADA: After a long lull, the Maoists have once again begun to make their presence felt by killing former extremist Muvvala Naresh (27) two days ago, branding him an informer. Later, the Maoists left the body of their former colleague in the Jangalathota area.

The police found a letter purportedly left by the Galikonda area team near the body of Naresh. The letter said that Naresh was killed as he turned into a police informer. In January, 2007, the Maoists killed Ulem Rambabu (27) of Jangalathota area alleging that he was being used by the police as their informer. Six years ago, top Maoist leader Gowtham was killed in an encounter in the same area.  The incident spurred the police into action, prompting them to intensify combing operations in the Agency areas of Chhattisgarh and Orissa states as well as in Visakhapatnam district.

East Godavari and Visakhapatnam district police have decided to conduct joint combing operations to check the movement of Maoists. The police are also keeping a vigil on the recently merged mandals of Chintoor, Kunavaram, Vararamachandrapuram.

SP M Ravi Prakash said the fresh incident of killing an innocent person was only an attempt to prove the presence of Maoists.
