Maoists Gaining Strength in Northern Kerala
KOCHI: The State Government has submitted before the Kerala High Court that for the last one-and-half year, the presence and activities of Maoists have been reported all over Kerala, especially in the Wayanad, Kozhikode, Malappuram and Kannur districts. “It is a serious threat to the whole country, especially to the northern districts of Kerala” the State submitted. “It is reported that Maoists have been using the scheduled caste and scheduled tribe settlements for visiting the colonies – Chappel, Maradi, Mundel, Kombara, Arimala and Kunki Chira – within the jurisdiction of the Vellamunda police station.
They carry weapons and ammunition; conduct lectures; distribute pamphlets; and encourage the youth to join their organisation to fight against the government. It is nothing short of war against the nation. The police have registered several cases with regard to the activities of the group,” the State submitted. State Attorney P Vijaya Raghavan made the submission in response to a petition filed by Shyam Balakrishnan of Mattiliyam in Wayanad, against ‘harassment’ by the police alleging Maoist link. The petitioner submitted that the police took him into custody and conducted an illegal search in his house.
