KOCHI: The city police have swung to action following the arrest of a top Maoist leader from the city suburbs.
Malla Raji Reddy was arrested by a special team of the Andhra Pradesh police on Monday near Little Flower Hospital, Angamali, on Monday.
The police have now let out a notice to all contractors employing labourers from the other States to provide photos and other identification documents of labourers to the Special Branch office.
This instruction is in the light of detecting support base for political extremists among the migrant labourer community, said a release issued by the office of the City Police Commissioner.
Hotels and other institutions that employ migrant workers should also file details of their employees with the Special Branch. Strict action will be initiated against those who fail to comply with the instruction, the release said.
