Statement by Lingaram Kodopi

Chhattisgarh Police has accused a tribal journalism student Lingaram Kodopi as a mastermind of a recent maoist operation in which a Congress party leader was attacked and 2 men were killed. The unsigned press note from police also claimed that Lingaram is tipped to take over as the head of Maoist party in Chhattisgarh. Lingaram Kodopi denies the charges in this statement and says police is targetting him because they are afraid that if a tribal becomes a journalist then their misdeeds will be exposed.
