first_imgThe alleged fake encounter deaths of two tribals in the restive Bastar region of south Chhattisgarh has snowballed into a political issue in the State as all the Opposition parties have threatened a protest if an impartial inquiry is not conducted into the case.Chhattisgarh Police claimed to have killed “two Maoists” in an alleged encounter in the Purungal-Dokapara area near the Dantewada-Bijapur district border on January 29.The alleged Maoists were identified as Bhima Kadati and Sukmati Hemla. The police also claimed to have recovered a rifle and some other weapons from them.However, local villagers alleged that both the deceased were “common civilians”.The villagers approached the tribal activist and Aam Aadmi Party leader Soni Sori and other political parties for support and refused to bury the bodies.“Sukmati was Bhima’s sister-in-law. Both of them went to meet Bhima’s brother Baman Kadati in Kirandul (a town in Dantewada) on January 28, and on the way back they were picked up by the security forces. They were killed on January 29. The villagers told me that both of them had no connection with the Maoists. Both the bodies are yet to be buried. The condition of Sukmati’s body suggests that she may have been raped before being killed,” Ms. Sori told The Hindu.The Congress party, led by Dantewada MLA Devati Karma, also jumped into the villagers’ protest and appointed an inquiry team to probe the matter.Former Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Ajit Jogi’s led a protest march by the Chhattisgarh Janata Congress to Chief Minister Raman Singh’s residence in Raipur on Saturday.last_img
