Naxal leader 'picked up' by Andhra police

Hyderabad, July 02: A top Naxalite leader of outlawed Janasakthi group was reportedly whisked away by police from his residence here on Thursday.

Veeresam, state in-charge of the outfit, along with three others, was taken away by a police team from LB Nagar area on the city's outskirts.

However, when contacted, the police officials did not confirm the report.

Acting on a tip-off, the police team went to a house at NTR Nagar, where Veeresam was residing for the last two days, the report said.

Meanwhile, a former Naxalite leader, Kura Rajanna, told a regional TV channel that the Janasakthi leader had been picked up by the police.

Veeresam should be produced in a court if he is facing any charges, he demanded.
