Narasimha Reddy is a Government school teacher and the President of Andhra Pradesh Teachers Federation.
Revolutionary Democratic Front (RDF) demands that they should be immediately either released unharmed or produced in a court of law. There is a threat to their lives as it is know that revolutionary and social activists whenever are detained illegally are many a time killed in the name of encounters.
We also appeal to the National Human Rights Commission to intervene and save the lives of these five leaders.
We appeal to all democratic rights, civil rights and human rights organizations to immediately intervene and pressurize the government to safeguard the lives of these revolutionaries and social activists.
