New Delhi: A professor of Delhi University was arrested by Maharashtra Police today for his alleged links with Maoists, after questioning him more than four times in the last six months.
“We arrested Professor G N Saibaba this morning in Delhi and he will be brought to Gadchiroli, Maharashtra, after taking transit remand in a Delhi court,” Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Gadchiroli Ravindra Kadam told PTI over phone.
The Delhi University professor has been arrested on charges of allegedly being a member of a banned terrorist organisation (CPI-Maoist), providing logistics and helping in recruitment for the group, Kadam claimed.
A police team from Maharashtra's Gadchiroli district, hotbed of Maoist activities, arrived this morning and placed Saibaba, an English professor with Delhi University, under arrest.
