In January, eight men working in private firms were arrested by the ATS and booked under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. ATS claims that they were involved in raising funds for the banned Communist Party of India (Maoist).
Police said that Suryavanshi had revealed that at the instance of Lodhi, he along with Sachin Andure, arrested for the murder of nationalist, Narendra Dabholkar, had received training to use firearms in November 2014.
Pawar was arrested after suspected Hindutva activists Vaibhav Raut, Sharad Kalaskar and Sudhanva Gondhalekar were taken into custody by the ATS on August 10 for allegedly conspiring to carry out bomb blasts across Maharashtra.
According to the ATS, the three men were also planning to carry out attacks in Mumbai, Pune, Satara, Solapur and Nallasopara and that the bombs they had assembled were low-intensity and meant to cause a commotion.
The men arrested on January 12 and 13 from various places including Kalyan, Vikhroli and Ghatkopar, were produced before a sessions court on Tuesday with the prosecution claiming they were probing their alleged links with the Maoists.
