Top Naxal leader held in Patna

Posted by Indian Vanguard on September 20, 2007

PATNA: The Bihar police on Wednesday arrested top Naxal leader Tushar Kant Bhattacharya from a rented house at Dujra locality in Patna. Working on an intelligence input, a team led by special tasks force DSP Vinod Kumar also arrested another Tushar’s accomplice Umeshji.

Police recovered a huge quantity of Naxal literature, explosives, pendrive and training equipment from Tushar who has been staying in Patna for the past two months. Accused in a number of murder cases in Naxal-infested Karimnagar, Prakasam and Adilabad districts of Andhra Pradesh between 1974 and 1980, Tushar is reported to be heading the CPI (Maoist) Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh and Uttar Bihar.

“We have informed police of the three states about his arrest and police officials concerned and some officials from Union home ministry are expected to arrive here to interrogate the arrested Naxal leader,” IG (Ops) S K Bharadwaj told TOI.

Tushar was produced before chief judicial magistrate who remanded him to judicial custody for 14 days.
