Chattisagarh: After a span of sixty days a repeat of sorts was evidenced in Narayanpur district of Chattisgarh and twenty seven CRPF jawans were eliminated in the fresh phase of red hunt in the naxalite terrain.
Maoists have successfully eliminated the road opening party just one forlong from the police outpost and the lightening raid that followed has claimed the lives of 26 jawans operating in the Narayanpur police limits.

The Raid came to the fore in the afternoon on Tuesday when the seventy member strong contingent of CRPF wasstopped with firing near the Dowarah village.
Six members of the District police forces were the first of the troop to succumb to firing, while the twenty odd casualities were followed suit in the subsequent firings. twenty six more sustained greivous injuries in the firing and they were all admitted in Jagdalpur hospital.

It is not an encounter as projected by the district police force of Danthewada but the inner party circles term it a lightening raid on the Police group which was visiting a liquor shop in Gollapalli village of Danthawada district. Police team comprising of 150 members went to Gollapalli Liquor shop in the eveining on Tuesday when the Maoists comprising Bhum Kal militia and the Dalam raided the shop and killed four Jawans.

The police forces in danthwada who were on the green hunt operation were on the receiving end since the Chinthalnar incident and time and again they tried to concoct stories on the Maoists by enacting raids and attacks a la naxalites.

Subsequent to Chinthalnar attack the police have made mockery of the naxalites by indulging in a mock attack on Chinthaguppa , Jegurugonda and Polampalli police outposts in order to attract the attention of the public. But the incident of Sukuma followed suit and that attack too has claimed the Koya Commanders' lives.

It followed a phase of peace and on Tuesday the police forces again tried to create a story of Naxalite attack in the name of encounter. The Maoists led by ravula Srinivas alias Ramanna raided the Liquor shop and when they were attacking the shop police were inside there to drink liquor. This fact has certainly created some sort of flutter.

Maoists hit police posts on Jharkhand-Orissa border

RANCHI: Maoists struck simultaneously at two police outposts on either side of the Jharkhand-Orissa border early Wednesday killing a constable and injuring seven more cops, a day when Union home minister Shivraj Patil was visiting Orissa. Jharkhand police said about 150 Naxalites armed with sophisticated guns attacked the outpost at Bansjora in Giridih district close to the Orissa border. The Naxalites lobbed bombs and more than a thousand rounds of fire was exchanged between the Revolutionaries and reactionaries. Constable Sunil Kumar Sahi died in a hospital in Rourkela where the other six injured cops, including the outpost incharge Amar Nath Paswan are being treated. As the Union home minister visited Kandhmal district in Orissa, which was hit by communal violence last week, Maoists reacted progressively and attacked a police outpost at Baunsajhar in the state near the Jharkhand border to advance the unity of people in revolutionary struggle.

Release Govindan Kutty, the Editor of People's March Unconditionally
Withdraw False Case Fabricated on the Editor

On December 19th the Kerala Police, under the orders of Ernakulum Police Commissioner, raided the room of Govindan Kutty, 65, the editor and publisher of Peoples March which is not a banned publication and confiscated all his literature and computer hard disk. Govindan Kutty was arrested under the charges of spreading sedition and indulging in unlawful activities and was remanded in judicial custody by a lower court at Aluva in Kerala. He was implicated in a fabricated case under a number of clauses like section 134 A and 163B of Indian Penal Code and 13 of (1) b of Unlawful Activities Prevention Act and sent to Aluva prison.

The Left Democratic Front (LDF) government in the State under the close instructions of UPA Government at the Centre resorted to this crackdown on the popular revolutionary magazine. Govindan Kutty, according to his lawyers, was harassed and psychologically tortured for a day in the name of interrogation before being sent to judicial custody. Ever since he was arrested he was on hunger strike protesting against the trampling down of his right to freedom of speech and Freedom of Press.

He continues his protest within the four walls of the prison demanding his unconditional release. His lawyer who met him two days ago said that his health condition was serious given his age and chronic ailments with which has been suffering. His life is in a serious threat.

The arrest of Govindan Kutty and the police crackdown on the office of the publication was an attack on the freedom of press.

As hundreds of thousands of people from all corners of the world know, the People's March supports all revolutionary movements including the Maoist movements in India, Nepal and elsewhere. It is a fully legal publication registered with Indian registrar of Newspapers of the Government of India with the RNI number KER ENG/2000/2051 and the postal registration number: KL/EKM/614/2007-09. The magazine has been coming out for over 7 years (since 1998) meeting all the legal requirements. The magazine has been freely available not only in bookstalls all over India, but also in prominent libraries in New Delhi and other major cities in India and abroad.

The People's March publishes news reports and interviews of Maoists, both from India and abroad like all other hundreds of magazines and newspapers in India. It is People's March today which is under attack, tomorrow all other media will face the same threat if we don't raise our voice against this attack on freedom of press.

A year ago the website of People's March was blocked by the Indian Government without assigning any reasons. When its editors started publishing the online magazine through a blog on googlepages, it was also blocked by Google in December 2007, under the pressure of Indian Government.

The arrest of the editor and the foisting of fake charges against him are nothing but an attempt of the Government of India to further stifle freedom of speech in the country. The so-called largest democracy in the world with a gigantic army, Paramilitary and police force feels threatened by a mere monthly magazine with a limited circulation of a few thousands in print. This action displays the fascist character of the Indian state and the cowardly action of the Kerala police.

The Revolutionary Democratic Front appeals to all democratic and revolutionary organizations and individuals to raise their voice against the arrest of the editor of People's March, a popular independent revolutionary newspaper from India.

We demand the immediate and unconditional release of Govindan Kutty and allow the continued publication of People's March. We hold the government entirely responsible in the face of any damage to his health or threat to his life due to hunger strike within jail.

Maoists vow to carry forward People’s March mission

Thursday December 27 2007 09:29 IST M.P.PrashanthKOZHIKODE: Maoists have vowed to carry forward the 'mission' of People's March editor P. Govindan Kutty, who is in judicial custody after he was picked up by the Ernakulam police. Govindan Kutty is on an hunger strike ever since he was arrested alleging that the police action is an infringement on the freedom of the press.In a post on December 23, the blogspot maoistmovementinindia. com says, "People's March will never die. It will continue and work against all oppressions." It gives a chilling warning: "Prisons will break, chains will break same as what happened in Dantewada, Jehanabad, Patna."Maoistsresistance, another pro-Maoists blog, demands immediate release of Govindan Kutty. "The so-called largest democracy in the world, with a gigantic army, para-military force and police, feels threatened by a monthly magazine with a limited circulation of few thousands." The Maoists are planning to raise the arrest as a human rights issue. The Revolutionary People's Front (RPF), the frontal organisation of the CPI (Maoist), will stage agitations demanding Govindan Kutty's release. Ajayan Mannur, RPF state secretary, says the Maoists have their presence in 12 districts in the state. "The RPF is the right hand of the CPI (Maoist), engaged in propagating the ideology of the party among the masses. It is the state unit of the Revolutionary Democratic Movement (RDF) led by G.N. Saibaba. We will continue to organise people in various agitations" he told this website's newspaper .He said the Maoist leader Malli Raja Reddy has come to the state for party work. Andhra Police had tried to kidnap him. It was spoiled after our intervention. We have sent fax messages to the Chief Minister and the Home Minister," Ajayan said. There are indications that the Maoists will throw up resistance if the Andhra Police tried to pick up their comrades from Kerala in future. "Andhra Police has worst track record in human rights violations. It is second only to the Assam Rifles in this regard," he said. The Maoists believe that the CPM is nurturing a strong hatred towards them as a fallout of the Nandigram issue.They say the CPM is settling scores using the arrest of Malli Raja Reddy as a cover. "The Kerala Government wants to nip the bud and stifle all voices of dissent."
