Hyderabad: A week after registering a case against Telangana Vidyarthi Vedika (TVV) president, Bandari Maddileti, for allegedly having links with Maoists, the Gadwal police on Tuesday arrested him along with Nalamasi Krishna, state vice-president of Telangana Praja Front, on Tuesday from the city.

About 10 days ago, the Gadwal (Town) police had registered the case against eight persons belonging to various organisations alleging that they were linked with Maoist parties, were encouraging students to join the Maoists and go underground to fight against the government. With the arrest of the key persons in the case, the state police are gearing up to identify others allegedly actively taking part in anti-social activities and bring them to book. During the first week of October, the police arrested Puliga Nagaraju, Gadwal district secretary of TVV, Vynomoni Balaram, state committee member of TVV, Kanti Jagan, member of Revolutionary Writers Association and editor of Student March monthly magazine, in separate instances, when they were found in possession of revolutionary material and posters of the Maoist party. The police found that the suspects in the case were working for frontal organisations, extending support to the Maoists and also encouraging the recruiting of students. Further, a search was conducted at B Maddileti's house in Nallakunta and police recovered letters addres-sed to corporate college managements by the Maoists and other incriminating material.

 

On Tuesday morning, Maddileti and N. Krishna were held by a police team of Gadwal at Banghlingampally in the city under the Chikkapdpally police station limits and were shifted to Gadwal to be produced before a court for judicial remand. The probe by the state police into the activities of organisations accused of being Maoist fronts revealed that they sent two persons - Harijan Bhavani of Kurtiravu-lacheruvu village and Uttini Anil Kumar of Makthal ‘underground’ to work for the Maoists in July and September 2018, respectively.
