Maoist stir hits AP’s tribal belt

HYDERABAD — The statewide shutdown called by Maoists in Andhra Pradesh yesterday to protest the recent killing of their top leader by police in an alleged fake encounter disrupted normal life in some tribal areas of the state.

The outlawed Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist) called for the shutdown to protest the killing of Maoist leader S. Rajamouli. The shutdown has affected normal life in tribal areas in Warangal district in Telangana, where another top Maoist leader was gunned down by police Sunday, and Visakhapatnam district bordering Orissa.

As a precautionary measure, the state owned Road Transport Corporation (RTC) suspended bus services to remote areas in Maoist infested districts of Warangal, Karimnagar, Adilabad, Khammam, Mahabubnagar and Visakhapatnam.
