Normalcy restored in Jannaram: Collector

Mancherial: Collector RV Karnan said normalcy had been restored in two habitations under Indanpelli revenue village in Jannaram mandal.

Addressing press persons along with Ramagundam Commissioner of Police Vikram Jeet Duggal, he appealed to public not to be carried away by rumours and unconfirmed messages being circulated on WhatsApp.

He urged tribal communities to verify such messages with authorities concerned for their veracity. He termed the Tuesday’s torching of huts belonging to Lambadas an unfortunate incident. He attributed restoration of peace in the area to swift action of police. He said Section 144 of CrPC would be in force in Jannram mandal till January 3.

Duggal said Lambadas were not involved in any attack targeting the adivasis. The attack on Sidam Bheem Rao, was the handiwork of Eluka Srinivas and Merugu Lachcha Goud. They assaulted Rao, suspecting him as an informer of Forest officials. Without knowing this, certain members of ethnic tribes resorted to violence by setting huts of Lambadas belonging to Kothapet hamlet under Indanpalli village on Tuesday evening,” he added.

The Commissioner said both Srinivas and Goud were teakwood smugglers from Kaval village. The duo admitted to having thrashed Rao when he was asleep at an agriculture field, suspecting that he had shared information pertaining to their offences with Forest officials. As many as 16 tribals were also booked for setting huts of Lamabadas ablaze, he added.
