Maoists set free six abducted Salwa Judum men

Posted by Indian Vanguard on September 19, 2007

Raipur, Sep 19: Maoist militants Wednesday released unharmed six men of the tribal militia movement Salwa Judum in Chhattisgarh’s insurgency hit Bijapur district after keeping them in captivity for over 24 hours, police sources said.

“Six tribal male cadres of Salwa Judum abducted by Maoist guerrillas Monday night from Patakutru village in Bijapur district were released today (Wednesday) morning unharmed,” a police official told IANS on condition of anonymity.

“The cadres who are in their late 20s, were released in a forested area and had been advised by militants to not cooperate with the police for anti-Maoist operations,” the official added.

Bijapur along with Dantewada, Bastar, Narayanpur and Kanker districts have been considered terror nerve centres of Maoists for decades. In March this year Maoist rebels massacred 55 policemen in one of the deadliest attacks carried out on police since the Maoist movement began in India in 1967 from a West Bengal village.
