VISAKHAPATNAM: High drama was witnessed at the King George Hospital (KGH) for nearly 30 minutes after relatives of the slain Maoist leaders—Vadkapur Chandramouli alias Devanna and his wife Kavitha alias Jyothakka—took serious objection when police asked them to sign on some papers in which they mentioned the deceased couple as terrorists.
Devanna's brother Niranjanachari said, "Everyone knows that Chandramouli and Kavitha were Maoist leaders and not terrorists. How can they categorise them as such?"
Earlier, the bodies of the couple were handed over to their relatives at KGH, following a direction from the High Court.
The bodies arrived at KGH for preservation after an autopsy was conducted at the Narsipatnam area hospital late on Thursday.
Meanwhile, SP J G Murali told reporters that APCLC leaders were creating a scene without knowing the facts. "We made all arrangements for the safe transportation of bodies as per the court directions", the SP added.
The bodies were sent in an ambulance along with a police escort vehicle to Vadkapur in Karimnagar, the slain naxalite's native place.
