Three Maoists held on Bangalore outskirts

K. Srinivas Reddy

The already beleaguered Maoist movement in Karnataka has received another serious jolt when three important Naxalite leaders including Devendrappa Aalias Vishnu, a State committee member this week.

A special team of Andhra Pradesh police, which kept watch on the Maoists, nabbed them in Peenya police station limits on Bangalore outskirts.

Sources said the other two arrested were Laxmi alias Geeta, a district committee member and Asha, a district committee secretary. Asha was stated to be the wife of Nanda Kumar, a member of the Karnataka State committee.

The Maoist movement in Karnataka split vertically after there was debate within the party leaders on the relevance of following area wise seizure of power concept, which the Maoist party firmly believes in. A section of leaders who believed that the revolutionary activity should also be taken up in urban areas by mobilising people broke away and started their own party.
