PADERU: Maoists have issued a warning to an IAS officer for discriminating against tribals. Maoist east division secretary Ganesh warned in a news release on Monday that people (read rebels) would teach a lesson to Paderu sub-collector Kartikeya Misra if he did not mend his arrogant ways.
“Being a public servant in a tribal area, he should give utmost respect to the tribals. But he is insulting and hurting the tribals, both mentally and physically,” the Maoist leader alleged.
After having earned this posting, some six months back, the IAS officer has allegedly manhandled two jeep drivers and caused two accidents. Ganesh demanded that government register a case against him under the SC/ST Atrocities Act and prosecute the bureaucrat for his arrogant ways.
