Autopsy to be held on Maoists killed in Kerala

IANS  |  Malappuram (Kerala) 

The bodies of two Maoists, shot dead in a gunfight with Police near here, will undergo an autopsy at the Kozhikode Medical College hospital, an official said Friday.

The two ultras - a man and a women - were killed in a gunfight with the Thunderbolts, an elite commando force of the state police in a forest area near Nilambur.

On Friday morning, an inquest was conducted and pictures of the dead have now come out, showing both wearing green shirts and trousers.

The shootout took place in the deep forest area and according to police, a third person also was injured, but managed to escape. Police are combing the forests area to locate more members of the group, and even a contingent of Karnataka Police also joined the search operations on Friday.

Even though the Police officials have not officially named the two Maoists, the dead have been identified as Koppam Devarajan and Ajitha alias Kaveri.

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan told reporters in the capital that the members of this group have held skirmishes with police.

"We are waiting for more information to come," he said.

Meanwhile, Communist Party of India State Secretary Kanam Rajendran strongly condemned the shooting down of the two Maoists.

"It's unfortunate that people who speak for the oppressed are being eliminated and that's not the way. The LDF (Left Democratic Front) here should not do what Narendra Modi does," he said.
