Who is hidma
The Maoist zone is divided in Bastar, Hidma’s battalion takes command of South Bastar, Bijapur, Sukma and Dantewada districts. The Government of Chhattisgarh has placed a reward of 25 lakh rupees on his arrest. Hidma is a resident of Puvarti village under the border of Jagargunda police station near the border of Bijapur and Sukma.
There is an old picture in the police record of a young man with thin skinny mustache. But now he is between 40-45 years old. Many former Naxalites and policemen told us that he is barbaric in the operation against the security forces but calm with his battalion. In the battle of rank between the Naxalites, he gives equal respect to his comrades. He is present in every major operation. He has the status of a hero among the Maoists, around whom many stories have been woven, for example, he is so courageous that he comes to shop in the local market in the usual costumes.

Hidma is the identity of Naxalites in Bastar
In Chhattisgarh too, the top leadership of Maoists is from Telangana, but the exception is just Hidma. After the death of Ramanna, there was talk of his promotion, but contrary to many reports, he has still not become a member of the Central Committee but Hidma is the law in his zone.
Hidma has been active for 20 years, many times he was about to get caught in the trap of security personnel but survived. Now his security is very tight, he always stays inside the forest. Since he grew up in these areas of Bastar, the gun was caught here, so he is aware of the jungle. Hidma lives inside the security circle of 4-5 soldiers of his battalion. Since human intelligence is the most important in these areas, but even if the security forces get the location, Hidma has moved forward as long as information is received due to the problem in the phone network.

Today there are many stories about Hidma joining the Naxalites in the 90s. Many people say he speaks fluent English while in reality he understands and speaks some local dialects along with Telugu, Gondi. Hidma, staying between 4-5 levels of security, is always equipped with an -47.
