Pro-Maoists come to aid of naxals
NAGPUR: The arrest of yet another leader of People's Union for Civil Liberties by the Chhattisgarh police has strong repercussion on the activities of the pro-Maoist groups in central India, including Maharashtra.
The Chhattisgarh police took into custody Adv Rajendra K Sail, the state president of People's Union for Civil Liberties, at Raipur on Friday. Earlier, Dr Binayak Sen, general secretary and national vice-president of the PUCL, was held by Chhattisgarh police.
The act of arresting Dr Sen was picked up as an issue of police highhandedness. Several front organisations reportedly kick-started an active movement to gain support base in favour of four naxals, arrested here on May 8.
Highlighting the innocence of the two of the arrested Maoists from Gondia - Naresh Bansod and Dhanendra Bhurle - several voices were raised in Vidarbha too.
Reportedly Mumbai-based supporters of Arun alias Sunil Thomas Ferriera, who was held with Mahesh alias Murali alias Ashok Satya Reddy at Deekshabhoomi on May 8 by Nagpur police, tried to underline his role in the society as a social activist who has been associated with student movement.
Reportedly, some of the student organisations are under scrutiny as their roles and activities are often viewed as the reflections of the Maoists vision.
Apart from shadowing the activities of the alleged front organisations in the city, Nagpur police have reportedly stepped up its vigilance in various areas bringing the activities of different social organisations under scanner.
The outcome of narco-analysis test on the arrested quartet, conducted at Mumbai recently, could bring the role of several organisations both in and outside Vidarbha under close scrutiny of the police and different intelligence agencies in the both state and central level.
