WARANGAL: Suspecting that Maoists had infiltrated into Warangal district, along with the Gutti Koya tribe, from neighbouring Chhattisgarh, police have decided to check migration of the tribals.

Security has been heightened on the borders of the district.

The doubt gained ground after the killing of AP Rayons deputy general managar Ramakrishna on May 16 this year.

The constant battle between Maoists and Salwa Judum in Chhattisgarh, for the last one decade, had forced many victims to migrate to Warangal and Khammam districts.

There are about 3,000 Guttikoya tribals living in Eturunagaram, Tadwai and Mangapet mandals. They cut down the forest and built homes on the land. Apart from working as labourers, they had taken up cultivation of paddy and maize, wherever water resources are available in the forest. The tribal population is dense at Manasapalli in Eturunagaram mandal, Timmapuram, Domeda, Regulagudem, Narsapur, Kotthur, Kantanapali villages in Mangapet mandal, Lingapur village in Tadwai mandal. Though Maoist activity has come down in the district, sporadic violent incidents raised suspicion about the sneaking of extremists.
