The Gadchiroli police have sent summons to alleged Maoist sympathiser G N Saibaba,a professor of English at Delhi University whose Delhi house was recently searched.
The professor has reportedly agreed to be questioned at his house.
Saibabas name had cropped up during the interrogation of alleged Maoist couriers Prashant Rahi and Hem Mishra by the Gadchiroli police,which later searched Saibabas house in Delhi and seized hard disks,pen drives and some documents.
We believe Saibaba has a lot to do with the case currently under investigation. Thats why we have sent him summons, DIG (Gadchiroli range) Ravindra Kadam said.
Though we can call him to Gadchiroli,we sought to know his place of convenience where he could be questioned through an email communication. He wrote back that since he is physically challenged,he could be available at his Delhi residence. We will honour his request, Kadam said.
No date has yet been fixed for Saibabas questioning,he added.
