Dr Haneef from Bhadrachalam in Khammam district of Andhra Pradesh is telling us that yesterday 7 adivasis from Matili area of Malkangiri district of Odisha were abducted while passing by Bhadrachalam to go for work. 2 of them who could escape had recorded their message on Swara and since then many have helped. And thanks to their efforts police have arrested the agents and rescued the 5 adivasis. They were very pleased and have now left for their onward journey. We thank all of you who helped specially Mr Vineel Krishna former collector of Malkangiri who took lots of interest in the case. For more Dr Haneef can be reached at 09490353568
