Naxalite ‘revolution’ crushed, claims police

Police sources here [Calicut] said to-day [December 5] that they could now state that the forest areas of Pulpalli, Tirunelly and Kottiyur had been cleared of most of the terrorists. Peace had been restored in the area and the so-called Naxalite ‘revolution’ had been crushed, they said. According to these sources, so far 25 persons, including Ajitha and her mother, Mandakini Narayanan, have been arrested in connection with the Pulpalli attack on November 24 and three others held under Section 151 Cr. P.C. (preventive custody), for having given shelter to the Naxalite terrorists. Police sources also stated that the original estimates regarding the number of attackers were “exaggerated” and it was now known that while in the Tellicherry incident less than 150 took part, in the latter – Pulpalli incident – the number was about 25 only.
