Odisha: CRPF harrassing adivasi villagers in the name of Maoists

Ajeet Panda from Nuapada district of Odisha says the lives of people in adivasi areas of district have become very difficult due to harassment of police and Central Reserve police force ( CRPF). He says it has become a daily affair that the force will come to villages and ask about Maoists and will unnecessarily beat up people. He tells story of an adivasi boy whose house was broken when tried to hide. He also talks to an adivasi leader who tells a similar story of a woman who was frightened but forces were hell bent to prove him a Maoist leader. For more Panda ji can be reached at 09437203461
