Maoists killed a local TRS leader Bheemeshwar in Alubaka village of Venkatapur Mandal in Mulugu district early this morning for what they termed harassing people by misusing his political and police power.
According to the information available, at least six members have arrived at his residence in the early hours today and asked him to come out of his house seeking his help to go to the hospital. But he refused to come out saying he doesn’t have the money with him. They fired at his door forcing him to come out and killed him on the spot despite pleadings by his wife to spare him.
The Maoists have left a note at the spot in which they claimed the responsibility of killing the TRS leader alleging atrocities using his political power and harassing people whoever questions him with the help of police by foisting false cases against them. They also warned the BJP and TRS party leaders in all villages to resign to their posts otherwise, they would meet the same fate, they warned.
The incident has thrown yet again a fresh challenge to the government and the police who have been focussing on to contain Maoist activities in the state in view of the growing Naxal movement in the adjoining Chattisgarh state.
Meanwhile, the Central government is believed to have pressed the Border Security Force (BSF) and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) into service for conducting combining operations in both Chattisgarh, Maharashtra, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. A high-level meeting to this effect was also conducted in Venkatapur police station in Mulugu district 5-days ago which was attended by the super cop and CRPF chief Vijay Kumar along with Telangana DGP Mahender Reddy, CRPF DGPs of Telangana and Chattisgarh besides IG CRPF Nagireddy, Intelligence chief Stephen Ravindra and Bastar range IG Sundar Raj.
The meeting also said to have decided to resume the combing operations which came to halt as one of the teammates found to have been tested positive for coronavirus recently.
