The Congress leaders along with the students from Osmania University met and consoled the family members of Maoists Shruthi alias Mahitha and Vidyasagar Reddy alias Sagar here on Monday. Speaking to the media on the occasion, they alleged that the police had murdered the Maoists in fake encounter. The State government, which promised that there would be no encounters in Telangana State and implement Maoist agenda, was resorting to killing of Maoists in fake encounters.
The encounters were murders by the government, Shravan and Dayakar said. They demanded that criminal cases be registered against the police personnel who took part in the encounter. On the other hand the leaders of People’s JAC appealed to the State Human Rights Commission to probe into the killing of Shruthi. The JAC leaders P Kiran Madiga, G Dayakar, C L Yadagiri and others submitted a memorandum to the Commission in this regard. They alleged that the woman Maoist was abused sexually and attacked with acid before being killed. The leaders also appealed the Home Minister Naini Narsimha Reddy to order probe into the incident.
