According to the Superintendent of Police, P.S.R. Anjaneyulu, at least 15 naxalites -- some of them carrying guns and clad in olive green uniforms -- reached the godowns and woke up the night watchman and two other staff members around 2 am. They told them that they were going to blast the godowns. They fixed explosives in godown no.9, which was empty, and triggered them.
The SP said that the Panchajanya Warehousing Company had given the godowns to the SWC on lease. While rice was stocked in six godowns, three were empty. They planted eight cans comprising explosives in the three compartments in the ninth godown. However, only four of them went off causing cracks to the walls of the first and third compartments. The roof of the godown also was smashed. The police registered a case based on the complaint filed by Panchajanya Warehousing Corporation in-charge, Muddana Seshagiri Rao. He said in the complaint that the Naguleti dalam of the PW threatened them with "dire consequences'' if they did not cough up the funds demanded by them. The SP said naxalites were damaging people's property to settle personal scores.
FFW rice recovered: Police on Wednesday recovered 110 bags of FFW rice looted by naxalites from Gummanampadu village. With this, the total quantity of rice recovered by the police went up to 860 bags.
