Two Italian tourist kidnapped in Orissa, India

Two Italians tourists have reportedly been kidnapped by maoists near the Kandhamal-Ganjam border, Orissa on Saturday, said reports. The two were taking pictures of the tribals, an act banned by the government, when they were allegedly abducted, said reports. According to information received by an English news channel, Maoists have named the foreign tourists as Bosusco Paolo and Claudio Colangelo. An audio message received by the channel from the Odisha secretary of the CPI (Maoists), Sabyasachi Panda, said the safety of the hostages would depend on how the state government responded to the Maoists' 13-point charter of demands submitted last year after they had kidnapped Malkangiri collector R. Vineel Krishna. Kandhamal superintendent of police J.N. Pankaj said he was not aware of the development.
Last year, on February 16, Maoists had abducted Malkangiri collector R. Vineel Krishna and junior engineer Pabitra Majhi. The entire episode had brought the state government on its knees, and it had to bear the humiliation of having to accept several demands made by Maoist-chosen interlocutors. The demands included calling a halt to the state-wide operation against the Maoists. Vineel Krishna was released after 9 days of hostage
