WARANGAL: Warning that the Maoists could seek a re-entry into Telangana (from Chhattisgarh) and try to re-establish their presence, Warangal Range DIG B Malla Reddy has asked the police officials of the border area police stations to be vigilant even as the Maoists have threatened some top political leaders to ‘vacate the tribal land encroached upon by them’ or face dire consequences in Khammam district.
The DIG advised the policemen thus during his visit to remote villages, including Thupakulagudem, Devadula, Buttaigudem and Kannaigudem in the Maoist -affected Eturunagaram mandal of Warangal district on Thursday. He was accompanied by SP (Warangal Rural) Ambar Kishore Jha, Mulugu DSP B Raja Mahendra Naik and CIs Sivaramaiah and Kiran Kumar. These villages are located on the district’s border with Khammam district and are close to Chhattisgarh.
The DIG’s visit assumed significance in the wake of reports that the Maoists had been trying hard to gain re-entry into Telangana since the formation of the new state.
