Visakhapatnam: The relentless campaign by the rural police among tribal hamlets is yielding results as they were revolting against Maoism in Agency areas, said Superintendent of Police Attada Babujee.

Addressing media during annual crime review meeting here on Saturday, Babujee said that many welfare programmes conducted by the police department targeting unemployed youth at various hamlets in Agency were yielding good results.

Under the Cheyutha programme, around 90 male candidates were trained in driving light heavy vehicles through Road Transport Authority and over 40 women were trained in sewing and tailoring techniques, he added.

The women were now selling apparels under the brand name of Manyam, he pointed out.

Similarly, another 18 educated men were given training in hotel management and all were provided employment, he said and added another 88 men were provided training in security and they have been employed as guards in several industries and establishments in the city.

Training in cellphone repair and two-wheeler mechanism was also given to the youth, he added. All the trained were belongs to Paderu and Chinthapalli hamlets, he added.

In recent times, the tribal youth took out a rally appealing Maoists not to damage cell towers and allow the government to lay roads in the interior hamlets.

As there is zero recruitment recorded during the year at Visakha agency areas, the Maoists were concentrated at AoB and other cut off regions, the SP added.

Speaking about the offences and crimes, the SP said that the district recorded 4,437 crime cases, 37 murders, 337 cases of crime against women, 225 missing cases of men, women and children, 236 property offences, 105 cases of house burglary, 54 SC/ST atrocity cases, 342 fatal road accidents and 7,135 drunken driving cases.

The district registered 152 ganja cases under which 16,023 kgs of ganja was seized and 625 local and 444 outsiders were taken into custody.

He also said that the speed laser gun which was installed three months ago on the National Highway has helped the police to register 208 over speeding cases.
