ITCSA appeals for early release of Vinil Krishna IAS

On 16 Feb. 2011, armed Maoists abducted the district collector of Malkangiri Dist. Of Orissa, Mr R Vinil Krishna, along with a Junior Engineer while on a visit to an inaccessible area. He was taken hostage after he went from a public interaction camp Jana Sanpark (Public Relation )  held at Badapada bordering Andhra Pradesh to inspect a culvert on a road nearby on a motorcycle. 30-year-old Krishna, a 2005 batch IAS officer, originally hails from Andhra Pradesh. Krishna was a civil engineer from IIT Madras, before entering into IAS. He topped the Union Public Service Commission examinations in Andhra Pradesh and bagged the 28th rank. He had earlier served as a director of District Rural Development Agency in Orissa before taking up the job of a district collector of Malkangiri district in January 2010. He is one of the most committed and sincere officers in Orissa and has been working for the underprivileged sections.
Thousands of people took out huge rallies on 18th Feb. demanding the immediate release of the two officials and denouncing the Left extremists. Hundreds of school children joined spontaneous marches in Malkangiri, Rayagada, Koraput and Jeypore towns. As many as 10,000 people participated in the rally at Malkangiri; many carried placards saying, "Free our Collector". Government employees, trade union activists, advocates and journalists joined the rallies along with college students. They demanded the unconditional release of Krishna and Majhi.

Similar rallies were held in Bhawanipatna, Athagarh, Parla-khemundi, Balangir, Gajapati, Kandhamal and even Rourkela. Many offered puja in temples and organised  yajnas for the release of the abducted officials.

All colleges and schools remained closed on 17th Feb. in Malkangiri town in protest against the abductions. Bus operators stayed off the road in support of the mass upsurge against Maoists.


ITCSA (Indian Telugu Civil Servants Association) is organizing a peace rally with candles on 21-02-2011(Monday) at 7.45pm near R.C.Reddy IAS study circle, Ashok Nagar, Hyd. In this regard all are requested to attend the rally and appeal the Naxals through media to release Mr. Vinil Krishna IAS without any delay.
