Naxals burn Tricolour, hoist black flags

By Our Staff Reporter

NIZAMABAD, JAN. 26. Suspected naxalites of the banned People's War Group observed `black day' in some parts of Adilabad district by burning the National Flags and hoisting black flags as part of the boycott of Republic Day celebrations on Wednesday.

The statues of Mahatma Gandhi and Nehru were painted black by miscreants at Dharpalli mandal headquarters in Nizamabad district.

Naxalites burnt the Tricolour and hoisted black flags in several villages of Indravelli, Sirpur (U), Jainur mandals and Utnoor revenue divisional headquarters in Adilabad district.

Two naxals came to the Rajannaguda high school, removed the Tricolour, poured kerosene and set it ablaze. They whisked away the school headmaster, who was released.
