Puttur, Jul 21: Western Range IGP A M Prasad on Friday July 20 visited Chandrashekhar Gore's house where a group of 3 Naxalites had come a day ago and assured the locals of providing more security in the area.

He however, said that it has not yet been established that those visited Chandrashekhar's house on Wednesday July 18 night were Naxalites.  But some sources said that the house owner has identified the only female in the group as Vanajakshi alias Jyothi from Balehole in Moodigere who is an active Naxalites for the last couple of years.  The house owner identified her from the photos shown by the police from their files.  However, the identity of the two young men is yet to established.

Vanajakshi has been active in Naxalite movement right from the time of Saket Rajan, who had been gunned down by police a couple of years ago.  Sources say that she has now been operating in Neelaguli Padmanabh's group for sometime.  She had earlier been arrested by police in connection with a case and was released later.

However, suspicion looms large around the entire episode.  Some of the sources have questioned the very purpose of alleged Naxalites who visited Gore's house.  Hardly someonoe can believe that people who had come asking gold and money went empty handed after listening to Gore's talk.  There is also news that there was no electricity supply when the threesome had come.  But Gore has managed to identify the female.

But the big question is about the writing which is on the wall.  Usually Naxals use red ink or paint to write symbolizing revolution.  But here they have made use of coal.  Moreover, they never glorify any individual but  write about the Maoist movement or Naxal movement.   But here they have asked financial support, that too in the name of Vithal Hegde.  Never has Vithal Hegde been associated directly with Naxals.  Moreover, the alleged Naxals always leave behind some writing, printed material and pamplets.  But nothing of this sort is found out in Gore's house.

In all mystery still shrouds round the episode.  Only a details police equiry would throw light on the entire course of happenings, say locals.
