The man who recruited terror

30 Apr 2010, 2235 hrs IST

Gujarat police have netted their most import catch since Kobad Ghandy, Vishwanath Varadarajan Iyer, a retired customs officer in-charge of training Maoists in urban guerilla warfare. Iyer, according to the police, is a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of India-Marxist Leninist Janshakti and has been responsible for training left extremists in the forests of Kerala in 2000.

According to initial investigations, Iyer was a recruiter and a major part of his agenda was to create a 'Red Corridor' from Gujarat to Pune. Police recovered CPI (Maoist) literature and compact discs containing details of Naxalite activities. But what has worried police is the revelation that Maoists were being trained by the Philippines National Communist Party in western India. "He has been involved in getting people from Philippines to train Maoist in Kerala jungles. We are trying to find out who these people are and where they are," said a Gujarat police officer.
