Maoist leader Naveen expelled from AOB division

Malkangiri: The Andhra-Odisha Border (AOB) division of the Maoists expelled Naveen alias Boda Anjaiah, a key leader for indulging in anti-party activity.

In a release, the Andhra-Odisha Border Special Zonal Committee (AOBSZC) claimed that action has been taken against Naveen as he was also misbehaving with women cadres. As a result, people especially in the cut-off areas in Malkangiri and others had stopped supporting the Maoists.

A native of Nalgonda district, Naveen had joined the movement in 2004 and later moved to AOB as area committee member of Korukonda dalam under the East Division of the CPI (Maoist).

He was made the division committee member (DCM) of Galikonda dalam in 2016.

Several cases including attack on BSF jawans, murder and other violence are registered against Naveen who also carries a cash reward of Rs 10 lakh on his head.
