Lucknow: The UP police are now probing the Maoist angle in the Mathura clashes. The police have seized mobile phones from Jawahar Bagh as well as from the arrested persons.

“We have shortlisted some numbers that supposedly belong to Maoists and we have put them on surveillance. We are also interrogating some close aides of Ram Vraksh Yadav , the mastermind of the clashes”, the official disclosed.

Ram Vraksh apparently was in touch with some extremist groups who had been supplying arms and explosives to him. It is believed that he also provided a safe haven to extremists who frequented his makeshift township in Jawahar Bagh. “Apparently, Ram Vraksh worked as a conduit for these groups, both for money and arms supply,” the official said.
