Adilabad tribal cop who rescued 13 policemen promoted as SI

Adilabad: Mesram Chandrabhan, first-ever police constable belonging to Raj Gond community, was promoted to Sub-Inspector. He was transferred to District Special Branch, a vigilance wing of the Police Department.

He was felicitated by Superintendent of Police Vishnu S Warrier here on Saturday.

Chandrabhan was honoured by Chief Minister’s Medal for rescuing 13 policemen in an exchange of fire between cops and extremists in the forests of Alampalli village in Kadem mandal in 1987.

A native of Jatarla village in Bazarhathnoor mandal, Chandrabhan is credited to have battled Maoists in the Allamapalli incident in which two Sub-Inspectors, a head constable and seven constables had lost lives when Naxalites indiscriminately opened fire on cops. He was presented the medal by the then Chief Minister NT Rama Rao and was elevated as head constable for saving his colleagues.

The tribal cop, who had a vital role in curbing activities of Maoists, was promoted as Assistant Sub-Inspector in 2011. Later, he had served in different parts of the erstwhile Adilabad district.

He was also instrumental in restoring normalcy in agency areas in the wake of recent standoff between Adivasis and Lambadas.

The Superintendent of Police said Chandrabhanu had been rendering matchless services to the department. “The police official is not only pivotal in protecting law and order, but in bringing the situation under control in Utnoor a few weeks ago. He has been an honest cop and accomplishes all tasks assigned to him. I am proud to promote him,” he remarked.
