    A Delhi University professor was arrested by the Maharashtra Police for his alleged links with the Maoists. Professor G.N. Saibaba, was arrested on Friday by the Anti- Naxal Operations unit of the Maharashtra police in New Delhi. He was later flown to Gadchiroli, Maharashtra. Confirming the developments, Deputy Inspector General (DIG) - Anti Naxal operations, Ravi Kadam, told The Hindu that Mr. Saibaba was arrested on the counts of aiding (Maoists) and criminal conspiracy. Mr. Saibaba was arrested from Delhi. According to police sources, Mr. Saibaba — a member of the CPI (Maoist), was in touch with top Naxal leaders, including their chief Muppalla Laxmana Rao a.k.a. Ganapathi, through a series of couriers. Mr. Saibaba’s name had cropped up during the interrogation of Jawaharlal Nehru University student Hem Mishra, who reportedly claimed before interrogators that he was acting as a "courier" between the professor and the banned cadres of Maoists holed up in Abujmaad forests of Chhattisgarh. “Mr. Saibaba, a part of the CPI (Maoist) entered into a criminal conspiracy with alleged naxal leaders and helped them organised meetings. He was also in touch with arrested naxals Hem Mishra and Prashant Rahi who were arrested in 2013,” Mr. Kadam said. Mr. Mishra was arrested in August 2013 and Mr. Rahi was arrested in September 2103. Both were charged under the stringent Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. The police calimed they were couriers who helped in delivering documents.

    So whats new? Most of the so called "social activists" are all naxal sympathizers. Why, I bet most of AAP leaders are too.

    DU professor Saibaba quizzed over ‘Naxal links’
    Express News Service | Nagpur | January 10, 2014 3:36 am


    DU professor G L Saibaba was Thursday interrogated by the Gadchiroli Police at his Delhi residence for about six hours to assess his complicity in cases pertaining to the arrests of alleged Naxal couriers from Uttarakhand, Hem Mishra and Prashant Rahi, in August-September last year and his alleged Naxal links.
    However, Saibaba was not arrested. A senior official told The Indian Express, “Our interrogation is complete. Saibaba denied all incriminating charges, as expected.” Asked if he could be arrested, the official said, “Establishing complicity is a priority. We will have to analyse the evidence vis-a-vis his replies on record to decide the future course of action.”

    The Gadchiroli Police team, led by sub-divisional police officer Suhas Bawche, was accompanied by officials of the Special Cell of Delhi Police and the IB. The Delhi Police had thrown a thick security blanket around Saibaba’s residence.Among those present at Saibaba’s residence were writer Arundhati Roy, his lawyer Prashant Bhushan, Bharat Jan Andolan leader B D Sharma and Delhi University Teachers’ Association officer-bearers Nalini Narayan and Caren Gabriel.


    The police video-recorded the whole interrogation process, during which about 200 questions were posed to Saibaba.
    Saibaba had reportedly refused to make himself available for the interrogation, saying he was busy till February. He had to agree when the police categorically told him that the interrogation will not be done as per his convenience.

    Mishra and Rahi had reportedly told the police that they were carrying the material to the central committee members at the instance of Saibaba.
    Later in a statement, Saibaba said the “Maharashtra police interrogated me at my residence today for over four hours from 1 pm.
    “They sought information and clarifications regarding my political activity as well as academic interests. I extended full cooperation and cleared all doubts and answered all questions to the best of my ability and without restraint.

    SOCIAL ACTIVIST MEDHA PATKAR IN DEFENCE OF MAOISTS IN INDIA

    The following letter has been sent to the Hon’ble Chairperson, National Human Rights Commission, New Delhi by E-mail


    07-01-2010

    To
    The Chairperson
    National Human Rights Commission
    New Delhi

    SUB: NHRC SILENT OVER VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS BY THE MAOISTS WEST BENGAL

    Most respected Sir,

    As an ordinary humble citizen of the country, I would like to invite your immediate attention to the following fact.

    The National Human Rights Commission was very much active during the episodes of Nandigram, Singur and Rizwanur Rahaman. But it is unfortunately maintaining complete silence over gruesome murders committed by the Maoists in West Bengal.

    In this connection, it would not be out of place to mention that Arundhati Roy, Mahasweta Devi, Medha Patkar, actress Aparna Sen and other intellectuals and human right activists sharing same opinion and boat are very much apprehensive and worried for the safety and security of the Maoists in India, who have been carrying on their nefarious and criminal inhuman brutalities on the common people ranging from amassing huge wealth, destruction of natural resources, plunder, rape, murder, extortion, blowing up schools, health centres, railway tracks, torture and Kangaroo trial using the indigenous people as pawns and human shields. Out of her utter sympathy and compassion for the Maoist butchers, social activist Arundhati Roy has initiated a mass petition on 12th October 2009 to the Prime Minister of India urging him to stop offensive against them and their brutalities. She has obtained the signatures of respected Noam Chomsky and other renowned dignitaries within the country and abroad to make the petition more acceptable, significant and weighty in order to glorify and justify the Maoist cruelties and violence particularly on the indigenous people. If Arundhati Roy and other signatories were really interested for the well being of the indigenous people, they would have also petitioned openly to the perverted Maoist butchers in the same manner, style and spirit urging them to desist from wreaking havoc on the indigenous people by using them as pawn and shield for suiting the tainted Maoist political agenda. But it is not so. The one and only one aim and objective of the petition is to create sympathy for the Maoists and justify, glorify and legitimize their mindless brutalities.

    The society demands timely disposal of the dead body of even a creature. But the entire world witnessed with horror how the dead bodies of 4 poor tribal CPI (M) cadres butchered by Maoist-TMC-Congress-SUCI Alliance were kept in open for 5 days without allowing disposal by the Maoist-TMC criminals at Lalgarh in West Bengal. Their relatives were neither allowed to come near nor touch the bodies. The Maoists and TMC workers danced and sang around the bodies in the same manner as is practiced by cannibals. Their brutality and inhumanity surpassed all limits of human tolerance and society.

    These Indian intellectuals and human right activists had played an important role during Nandigram and Singur episodes to extend moral and logical support to the rainbow alliance of TMC, Congress, Maoists and SUCI under Mamata Banerjee. They had unleashed widespread virulent, venomous, exaggerated and politically motivated campaign throughout the world and organised processions, rallies, meetings, and mass signatures and so on against the mainstream Leftists over the unfortunate death of 14 persons in Nandigram resulting from provoked police firing where as they maintain complete silence over regular murders committed by the Maoists. Many of them had directly or indirectly worked actively for the victory of Maoist and Mamata Banerjee supported Congress-TMC-SUCI candidates in West Bengal in the last Parliamentary elections held in May 2009 making the Nandigram, Singur and Rizwanur Rahaman episodes as important election issues.

    Despite this, these Indian intellectuals all along shamelessly pretend to be impartial, neutral and non-political.

    More than 87% landowners had consented to offer their land for the establishment of an automobile factory at Singur. But it was abandoned due to the political agitation of Mamata Banerjee and her team consisting of opposition political parties, Maoists, some intellectuals, few human right activists and a section of motivated media. Singur had nothing to do with SEZ.

    Similarly, in spite of repeated assurances by the Chief Minister of West Bengal that no chemical hub would be set up at Nandigram, Mamata Banerjee and her team had caused the unfortunate incident on 14th March 2007 by way of utter provocation and manipulation resulting in 14 unfortunate deaths.

    Had these intellectuals been impartial, unprejudiced and unbiased the incidents of neither Singur nor Nandigram would have taken place.

    The Maoist-TMC-Congress-SUCI butchers under the leadership of the Union Railway Minister have murdered brutally hundreds of CPI (M) and other Leftist leaders, cadres and supporters in West Bengal. They have blown up school buildings, health centres, mobile towers, railway lines, railways stations and what not. But these intellectuals and human right activists are maintaining complete silence. They think that only the Maoists are human beings. Except the Maoists, none in the country can have any human rights and the murder of hundreds of people by Maoists is, therefore, justified and a need for the society. So, they have not yet uttered even a single word to condemn the crimes of the Maoists.

    Every murder is unfortunate and condemnable. Had this group of intellectuals and human right activists played an impartial role and stopped lending moral and logical support to the Maoist butchers, the unfortunate deaths at Nandigram and other parts of the country could have been avoided easily. But the fact was that Mamata Banerjee and her rainbow alliance needed some dead bodies for winning the parliamentary elections in West Bengal riding over sympathy wave and the intellectuals and human rights activists presented the same in time to suit her political agenda.

    The National Human Rights Commission had taken Nandigram, Singur and Rizwanur Rahaman episodes very seriously and sent fact-finding teams to West Bengal. This action on the part of NHRC received wide coverage in the media at that time. But today it is also completely silent over the murders committed by the Maoists in West Bengal and other parts of the country. As a result, this has raised many a questions in the minds of the people.

    Now, Prashant Bhushan wants Maoists to join AAP: Report[/B]

    [​IMG]

    New Delhi, Jan 12: Senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Prashant Bhushan on Saturday said that Maoists should join the AAP movement and also called for a "referendum" on the issue of deployment of paramilitary forces in the Maoist-hit areas, a Deccan Chronicle report said on Sunday.

    Bhushan, who recently created a controversy by seeking a referendum on the deployment of armed forces in Kashmir, said there could only be three conditions under which a security measure could be taken by either the central or state governments, the report said. The three conditions are: infiltration through the borders, communal riots and normal civil security where the consent of the local people should be taken before deploying the military forces. Bhushan said he is in favour of a referendum on the deployment of the paramilitary forces in the Naxal-hit areas and this falls under the third category. He said the special armed forces serve the interests of big corporates than the helpless tribals.

    AAP wants Naxals in its fold

    [​IMG]

    New Delhi: After seeking a referendum on the presence of the Army in Kashmir, senior Aam Aadmi Party leader Prashant Bhushan on Saturday favoured that Maoists should join the “AAP movement”.

    While the Centre and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh have labelled Maoists as the main “security threat”, Bhushan called for a “referendum”on the issue of deployment of paramilitary forces in the red corridor.

    Explaining his contention on the deployment of special forces like the Army and paramilitary jawans, he said that there can only be three conditions under which such a security measure could be taken by the governments, both at the Centre and in states on their own.

    “The first case would be prevention of infiltration through the borders and the national government should have discretion to deploy the Army and the second situation could be communal riots, where state governments should have the liberty to deploy military forces to protect minority from genocide, as it happened during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots or in 2002 in Gujarat.

    In the third situation, in which normal civil security is to be provided, for any such deployment in this case, consent of the people of the area should be ascertained,” he insisted.

    When pointedly asked if he favoured a referendum on the deployment of the paramilitary forces in Naxal-affected areas, Bhushan said this falls under the third category as, in this case also, the special armed forces serve the interest of big corporates more than the displaced and hapless tribals.

    In case of ambushes on indian para military forces by naxals and maoists, the MHA need look no further than the likes of Patkar and Bhushan as these are declared sympathizers of naxalism and should be interrogated as advisors of the movement and hence responsible for the deaths of indian policemen in the line of duty.
