Investigating agencies probing Delhi University professor G N Saibaba, who was arrested last week for his alleged Naxal links, have reportedly extracted some e-mails and information from his computer that suggests he recruited at least one more student from Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) as a “professional revolutionary” to work in Chattisgarh, sources said.
The student who is described as “Goswami” in Saibaba’s correspondence with his close confidantes was once a member of Democratic Students’ Union, a student’s organisation in JNU.
“We traced some letters between the student and Saibaba in which the former is describing the life in Chattisgarh’s jungle as tough. He (Saibaba) primarily assists the top hierarchy of the Communist Party of India (Maoists) in devising strategies and recruiting more people from urban areas,” a senior official said on condition of anonymity.

Maharashtra Police had arrested another JNU student Hem Mishra last year from Gadchiroli district. He was also a member of DSU. It was during his interrogation that Saibaba’s name cropped up. Maharashtra police had quizzed Saibaba on that occasion at his residence in Delhi.
“We arrested Saibaba after procuring a non-bailable warrant against him. A chargesheet has been filed in the case where he has been named as an accused,” IGP Ravindra Kadam, anti-naxal operations, Maharashtra Police, said.
Kadam refused to give details about Goswami saying investigations were on.
A senior official said the documents regarding the highly secretive fourth Central Committee (CC) meeting which was attended by the highest decision-making body of the CPI (Maoists) was reportedly seized from Saibaba’s house.
The document, reportedly a highly ‘secretive note’, established that Maoists were able to congregate and convene the fourth CC meeting despite mounted surveillance and the presence of thousands of security forces.
It was only after a copy of the resolution was recovered in Delhi that security agencies came to know that such a high-level meeting had taken place in Sunabeda area of Orissa between February and March last year. Saibaba’s house was first raided in September 2013.
“We would not have come to know whether any such meeting took place had we not recovered the secret resolution note from the academic’s house. Nobody knew that the leadership of the Maoists managed to meet without being caught,” the officer said.
