Finally law-enforcing agencies crack the whipAfter long last action has been initiated. Today, the Pune police have arrested four Maoist sympathisers, Varavara Rao, Vernon Gonsalves, Sudha Bharadwaj and Arun Ferreira, in a significant crackdown on the so-called 'Urban Naxals'. Another Maoist named Gautam Navlakha has been put under house arrest. All search warrants and detentions were carried out under anti-terror UAPA law and Sections 153A, 505(1)(b), 117, 120(b) and 34 of IPC. These Maoists were allegedly involved in Bhima-Koregaon violence at the beginning of the year in the name of Dalit rights. Earlier the Pune Police had arrested Pune police had arrested 5 people, namely, Surendra Gadling, Sudhir Dhawale, Rona Wilson, Shoma Sen, Mahesh Raut and Rana Jacob for this terrible violence.
The Maoists have been involved in many nefarious and anti-national activities (which I don't want to mention here) including plots of the assassination of political leaders.
They and their direct and indirect supporters must be sent behind the bar ASAP.
