K. Srinivas Reddy

HYDERABAD: Maoists have alleged that the Andhra Pradesh police had been illegally detaining Santosh, a senior member of the Central Technical Committee of the naxalite party, who was believed to be taken into custody in Mumbai on August 24.

In a statement here on Monday, Maoist spokesperson Azad alleged that the Special Intelligence Branch of the Andhra Pradesh police had picked up Santosh from his rented house in Mumbai.

Condemning the arrest and illegal detention, Mr. Azad demanded that he be produced in a court of law immediately. Apprehending threat to the life of Santosh, the Maoist leader warned of retaliatory attacks if any harm was done to him. He warned that the ruling party leaders would have to pay a price for any harm done to Santosh.

Charge dismissed
