Nearly 15 residents of Tadmetla village in Sukma district have deposed before a judicial commission that Special Police Officers (SPOs) had burnt down their houses in March 2011. The villagers travelled around 150 km to Jagdalpur and refuted police claims that their men were not involved.
The Justice T P Commission was set up by the state government after residents of three villages, Tadmetla, Morpalli and Timapuram, claimed that the SPOs and the police raided and razed their houses and raped several women.
The SC had asked CBI to investigate the case in July 2011. The agency had filed an affidavit in the SC seeking security from the state government citing "grave threat to the lives of its officials".
It had said: "Seeing the mood of agitating SPOs, police officers advised the CBI team to go inside the rooms. Later, SPOs surrounded the room and started banging the doors, even tried to break open the doors, which were secured by placing almirahs against the doors by CBI officials.The CBI team was made captive for around 3-4 hours and was rescued by the CRPF."
