Hyderabad | 2nd November 2016
The Andhra Pradesh Police and Intelligence Bureau have reportedly perceived a major threat to Chief Ministers N Chandrababu Naidu and K Chandrashekar Rao, among other top leaders, from Maoist factions.
As per reports, the Police have managed to get hold of a hit-list containing the names of important leaders including the two CMs.
In view of the volatile situation ensuing from the killings of Maoists in AOB and the gunning down of SIMI terrorists in MP recently, Central Intelligence authorities, in order to avert any untoward incidents, have chalked out a comprehensive security protocol to be followed from November 3 (on the occasion of the Maoist bandh) till the situation subsides.
Apart from the two CMs, security agencies have issued strict advisory to all other important leaders including ministers and legislators against visiting remote areas in the State.
In view of the warning, CM KCR, who had planned on staying at his farm house over the weekend, was rushed back to the State capital within an hour on Tuesday by his personal security. The Telangana Police have deployed special troops in naxal-infected places of Adilabad, Asifabad, Mancherial, Jagtiyal, Peddapally, Karimnagar, Kothagudem and Khammam, to keep a track of insurgent movements and perceive more threats to the political fraternity. Apart from increasing patrolling in the areas, the police have also erected check posts at important junctions and points, and stepped up search operations on all passing vehicles.
It is also learnt that Maoists have also launched their own combing operations in the forest area of AOB to trace their elusive leader R K.
