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.

Police said RDF state secretary Mannur Ajayakumar and state committee member Karivaloor Ramakrishnan were taken into custody from Iritty, where they were distributing pamphlets, titled ‘Maoism is not terrorism’. Three others in the group escaped, but one of them, T Sugathan was arrested on Friday from Kozhikode.

Sugathan, state president of RDF, was taken into custody soon after he came out of the press club, where he held a press meet along with rights activist A Vasu.
