CPI (Maoist): Aerial Attack By Security Forces In Dandakaranya Region Targeted Leading Cadre

Bhadradri Kothagudem District, January 12, 2023: The CPI (Maoist)’s Bhadradri Kothagudem–Alluri Sitarama Raju (BK-ASR) Division Committee has alleged that the security forces carried out an aerial strike targeting a Maoist leader in Chattisgarh’s forest area, close to the inter-State border with Telangana, on Wednesday.

In a statement purportedly issued in the name of the Maoist party’s BK-ASR division committee on Thursday, its secretary, Comrade Azad, said the People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army (PLGA) had given a befitting reply to the aerial attack by the security forces. He alleged that the police resorted to false propaganda that the PLGA Battalion 1 commander Madvi Hidma died in the attack.

“It is a fact that the security forces carried out the attack, but in vain,” he further alleged, condemning the Centre’s anti-Maoist operation “Operation Samadhan–Prahar” in the Dandakaranya forest region.
