MYSORE, FEB. 7. The Communist Party of India (Marxist) has criticised the killing of naxalites by the police in Chikmagalur district on Sunday.
In a press release issued here today, the State Steering Committee member, Ramappa, said the State Government, by taking such drastic steps, is intimidating the public, and that the killing of Saketh Rajan and his associate amounts to violation of human rights.
He said the Chief Minister, N. Dharam Singh, has sent a confusing signal by inviting naxal leaders to talks on one hand and initiating police action on the other. He said the Government should withdraw the police force deployed in the area and invite naxal leaders for talks. The intimidation tactics employed by the Government will escalate violence, he warned.
