Hyderabad: A Maoist couple allegedly participating in revolutionary activities while out on bail was arrested by the LB Nagar police on Tuesday. The police said it seized incriminating Maoist literature, laptops, pen drives and correspondence letters with the Maoists from the couple.
The arrested persons, Narla Ravi Sharma, 54, and his wife Bellapu Anuradha, 56, are residents of Vishalandhra Colony in Mansoorabad of LB Nagar. Acting on a tip off, the special teams of Rachakonda police conducted searches in the couple’s house.
Police said Sharma, a member of the Bihar committee of the Maoists, was in-charge of ‘military affairs’ in Bihar and Jharkhand and supervised security arrangements for the 9th Congress at Bheembundh forest in Bihar. He worked closely with Jammu Joint Student Federation.
Sharma was arrested in 2009 by Hazaribagh police of Jharkhand. He was released on bail on April 4, 2016, and was staying with Anuradha, an ex-station committee member of the Maoists.
“Since then, he is frequently going underground for long periods and taking part in the meetings of top Maoists in Chhattisgarh and other parts of the country. He disappeared for almost a month in 2018 with his wife and went to Dandakaranya,” said Rachakonda police commissioner Mahesh Bhagwat.
Sharma was booked in 11 cases in Jharkhand, four cases in Hyderabad and one at Chintapalli of AP. The police alleged that he met Maoist ex-central committee members Jantu Mukherjee and B.P. Singh at Kolkata and Varanasi Subramanyam in the city.
Mr Bhagwat said Sharma was actively involved in the formation of All India Forum against Hindutwa Fascist Offensive in February 2019 at Delhi....
