Maoist sympathizers planning meet in Delhi,say police

Police claimed the document,like many other papers,originated from DU professor G N Saibaba.

Maoist sympathizers are planning to organise a three-day meet,International People’s Tribunal,most likely in Delhi in December to highlight the “impact of Operation Green Hunt on the tribals”,according to senior police officers here.

According to them,the plan was revealed by one of the documents seized from Prashant Rahi,the alleged Maoist courier from Uttarakhand who was arrested recently at Deori in Gondia district.

Police claimed the document,like many other papers,originated from DU professor G N Saibaba.

The purported documents contain elaborate guidelines on how to prepare dossiers and compilation of “fact-finding” reports on the issue from various places,including Bastar,Saramanda,Latehar and Gadchiroli. “Affected people should be brought from the areas to depose before the tribunal,” the documents say.

Among those to be mobilised for the conclave,according to the documents,are advocates taking up cases of encounter killings,political prisoners,journalists,activists,writers,artists,film-makers and academicians. The “jury” of the proposed “tribunal” consists names such as Arundhati Roy,Rajinder Sachar,A P Shah,Sudershan Reddy and M Suresh.
