No getting away from Azad

By T S Sudhir

Questions, questions and more questions confront the AP police regarding Maoist Azad’s alleged fake encounter in Adilabad forests on the night of July 1. The cops put up a brave front even as the post mortem report drills holes in their version. Even in his death, Azad is proving to be a headache for the state police.

    thankfully the media is standing up to the state.hopefully it will make it accountable. when state can’t respect the constitution and the judicial process , who will?

    Hi Tss,

    And now, the maoists have held hostage 4 cops and say they are avenging Azad’s death. One more cycle added to this unending downward spiral 😦

    This is one battle where i am not sure what to decide about, the state showing an Iron hand as part of maintaining Law and Order.

    I heard an officer there say, that given the terrain, a ground battle, can never be won. Will he be heard by his superiors ?

    The worrying aspect is, lop-sided development scenarios that we invariable observe in all these Naxal “dominated” regions, is just what is showing up; even in the majority of the rest of the country, development models and development progress, are having seriously issues; Its just that, lost in the “daily struggle” and “metro life”, a majority of we the people, are just stumbling on.
