16 bodies fished out; Unconfirmed reports says six wounded are in hostage

After more than 24 hours of the deadly Moist attack on the Greyhounds in Sileru-Balima reservoir at Andhra-Orissa-Boarder, unconfirmed reports put the number of bodies recovered at 16 but the grim part is the fate of six wounded Greyhounds personnel. According to sources, six police personnel reached the banks at Gadasalakonda only to fall into Maoists' hands. Naxalites could use them as human shields to retreat into forests.

Of the bodies traced so far, one is believed to be Munchingput Sub Inspector Sankar Rao, a native of Srikakulam district. Police reportedly conveyed the news of his death to his family members through his cousin who also works with the Police Department. Srikakulam Superintendent of Police Srikanth is learnt to have visited the bereaved family at Palavalsa in Boorju mandal to convey his condolences. Rescue teams retrieved the body of Uday Nagu, a junior Commando, recruited into the force recently. He belongs to Warangal. His body is to shifted to Visakhapatnam. Senior police official believe that most of the missing police personnel nearly 35 are still trapped inside the launch which sank in the reservoir might have dead.

Some reports say that the police have found a note left by the Maoists, stating that the attack was meant to prove Chief Minister, Dr.YS Rajasekhara Reddy's claims of upper hand over them as completely wrong. The Chief Minister, Dr.YS Rajasekhara Reddy addressing a press conference at the Seven Hills Hospital here on Monday after call on the eight wounded constables who were undergoing treatment said that they are remote chances of the 35 police personnel missing who were trapped The Chief Minister said that a senior officer would be deputed to inquire into the attack and look into all aspects. He would be asked to recommend steps to be taken to avoid recurrence of such incidents in future. He praised the Greyhounds men for their gallant effort in trying to retaliate in spite of being in a disadvantageous position. Some of them reached the shore after swimming for a few hours with injuries on their bodies. The State Government would provide all help to the families of the victims. He described the incident as the most unfortunate and said the Naxalites must understand that democracy triumphed everywhere in the world and power could not be gained through barrel of a gun. The Home Minister, K Jana Reddy was present at the conference.
