Five `naxalites' discharged in Orissa

KalingaTimes Correspondent
Malkangiri (Orissa): A Malkangiri court on Thursday ordered the release of five persons, including two women, who were arrested by the local police as `naxalites' in September 2004.

Additional District and Sessions Judge of Malkangiri Sib Kumar Sahu discharged the five and ordered their release from

judicial custody due to lack of evidence against them.

Balram Majhi, Adu Malik and Madhi Rama were arrested along with the two women Debe Madkami and Debe Kabasi from the Malkangiri bus stand when they reached there after attending a rally in Bhubaneswar, the Capital city of Orissa.

The`Jana Garjan Samabesh' was organised by Daman Pratirodh Manch, a pro-naxal outfit.

Hundreds of tribals and people belonging to other backward communities had attended the rally.

The five had been lodged in the Malkangiri jail since their arrest on September 19, 2004.

They were released hours after the court passed the orders in their favour.

They returned to their homes in Motu and Kalimela areas of the district soon after they were released from the jail.

Advocate Rabi Narayan Patro represented the five persons in the court. Kalinga Times
