Maoists may take advantage of unrest in Adilabad: DGP Mahender Reddy

Adilabad: Director General of Police (DGP) M Mahender Reddy on Sunday warned that Maoists might take advantage of the ongoing feud between adivasis and lambadas and try to enter erstwhile Adilabad district, which once considered their stronghold.

“Some forces are behind the ongoing feud between adivasis and lambadas,” the DGP told media persons after holding a review meeting with senior police officials at Utnoor. Reddy, who arrived here by a special helicopter to take stock of the situation, said some people or forces were behind the differences between the two groups and were trying to exploit the clashes. “The extremists may try to take advantage of the enmity among tribals, and seek to enter the district. The forces that are trying to create disturbance would be identified soon and cases would be booked against them,” he said. 

Stating that the common public should not be dragged into politics and clashes, he warned that nobody would be spared if found spreading hatred and fuelling the clashes. He appealed to the people to show patience and cooperate with the police to restore normalcy in Agency areas. “The police have initiated measures to bring the situation under control,” he said.

The police chief offered some suggestions to police officials on how to bring the current situation under control. He instructed them to have coordination while tackling the protests and tension in Agency areas, besides asking them to be on high alert in view of the differences between the two groups. He directed them to carry out patrolling in sensitive parts to prevent clashes.

Earlier, the DGP visited shops, hospital and houses which were burnt by protesters on Friday. He interacted with owners of the properties which were set on fire. He assured them of action against the offenders. The DGP also toured different parts of Utnoor, Adilabad and Asifbad towns to take stock of the situation.
