GUWAHATI, May 20: A Maoist central committee member Alok Bakshi, who was arrested in Visakhapatm in January, 2013, has been brought to Guwahati by NIA for interrogation. Bakshi is expected to be produced before a special court here seeking his remand.
An NIA official said Bakshi was the main link of Maoists and Northeast rebel groups, like Manipur’s PLA. Bakshi, who had earlier based his operations in Guwahati, was also responsible for spreading Maoists network in Assam.
“It was under his supervision that groups of youths from Assam were taken for training to Jharkhand. He had also taken trainers from PLA to Samanda in Jharkhand for imparting guerrilla training to Maoist cadres,” the official said.
The NIA has already filed two chargesheets in connection with the case relating to Maoist-PLA links and six persons including a school teacher and former human rights activist Pallab Borbora, who was arrested from Golaghat, were med in the chargesheets.
The NIA chargesheets pointed out that the Maoist rebels came into an agreement with the PLA to procure Chinese weapons and communication sets. Though two chargesheets have been filed in connection with the case, the investigation has not been closed.
