VISAKHAPATNAM: In yet another major breakthrough, the Visakhapatnam rural police nabbed two militia members in G Madugula Monday. The arrested were identified as P Ramesh (25) and V Kameswara Rao (25), residents of Tadapalem village of G Madugula mandal of Visakhapatnam agency. The duo was found to be actively moving with Maoists of Korukonda Area Committee.

According to police reports, the rural police and CRPF personnel, based on credible information, intercepted the two militia members while they were on their way from G Madugula to their native Tadapalem village. During the interrogation it was revealed that these two members are acting as the backbone for Maoist activities in the region by providing critical logistical support and local inputs. Besides, they were also involved in six different Maoist offenses including an exchange of fire in Luvasingi and recent arson of Gudalam Veedhi ashram.

“These Milita members are also acting as collection agents for extortion activities of Maoists especially from local traders and farmers. They are also encouraging ganja cultivation in the region to make money to fund Maoists,” said Paderu ASP A Babujee.

The ASP added that Maoists are actively pursuing obstruction of road constructions in tribal areas as increased connectivity is hindering their anti-social activities.
