Maoist leader’s whereabouts a mystery

HYDERABAD: Confusion reigns over the whereabouts of CPI (Maoist) State secretary Sambasivudu as his relatives allege that he was picked up by police while the latter deny the same.

The parents and a brother of the Maoist leader have already met Home Minister K. Jana Reddy twice with a request to produce him but Mr. Reddy clarified to them that he was not in the custody of police.

DGP S.S.P. Yadav refused to meet them when they sought his appointment. Mr. Yadav was supposed to report to the State Human Rights Commission on Tuesday following an appeal by Sambasivudu's relatives. It was rumoured that Sambasivudu was apprehended by an outfit styled 'Blue Tigers'. The AP Kranthi Voice Sangh alleged that the Blue Tigers was a name assumed by Greyhounds, the anti-naxalite force of State police.
