Three leaders of the Revolutionary Democratic Front, which is identified as a pro-Maoist organisation, have been arrested under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) after they were found distributing pamphlets supporting ultra-Left ideology.

While two persons were arrested from Iritty in Kannur on Thursday, another was nabbed by police from the Kozhikode Press Club, where he had gone to hold a press conference to protest against the arrest of his colleagues.
