‘Operation Green Hunt,’ the Indian state offensive against the CPI(Maoist) and their adivasi (tribal) allies, continues. Indian Army special forces are now assisting paramilitaries in the effort to harass, brutalize and displace tribals; it is also highly likely that US special forces are providing training to these groups. The following document gives an account of the effects of these operations on tribal villages:
Apart from this, in every village they entered, the government forces resorted to loot, beatings, razing of houses and destruction.
In Padko village on the southern side of Indravati River, the government forces destroyed a field. People are collectively growing vegetables, maize etc in this field. In the forest nearby this village a school is being run by the revolutionary Janatana Sarkar and hundreds of government forces attacked this school. The entire students and teachers had evacuated the school beforehand fearing attack. The police camped for two days there and wreaked havoc.
