A.P. police on border asked not to enter Orissa

K. Srinivas Reddy

HYDERABAD: The Andhra Pradesh police have asked its personnel deployed on the borders of Orissa not to cross over lest the move be construed as combing operations to free Malkangiri Collector R. Vineel Krishna, who was abducted by the Maoists on Wednesday night.

Instructions were issued on Thursday morning to the civil police and the Grey Hounds teams stationed in agency areas of Visakhapatnam not to cross over to Orissa under any circumstances. “We do not want to be seen as aggressors,” a top police officer confided when asked to speak about the kidnap episode.

A ‘cut-off' area

Kudumulagumma block of Malkangiri, from where Mr. Krishna was abducted, falls in the ‘cut-off' area of the district, a euphemism for the place being totally inaccessible to police forces.

Another police officer involved in counter-insurgency operations likened it to the Jaffna peninsula of Sri Lanka, a stronghold of the LTTE in its heyday.
