VISAKHAPATNAM: Police arrested Ganti Prasad, a close aide to Maoist top gun Ramakrishna, while he was travelling to Visakhapatnam from Vijayawada by Janmabhoomi Express yesterday, the Viplava Rachayitala Sangham has alleged.

But police are yet to make an announcement that Prasad is in their custody.
Speaking to Express, Virasam president Chalasani Prasad said here today that Ganti Prasad, who hails from Bobbili in Vizianagaram district, had been active in the people’s movement for several few decades buty the police detained the “Bobbili hero’’.

Ganti Prasad had joined the mainstream of life about ten years ago and his wife resides at Komarti village in Srikakulam district while his son Sujhir is studying law in Srikakulam.

According to the Virasam president, Ganti Prasad boarded the train at Vijayawada to go to his home town Bobbili but did not reach Visakhapatnam, giving rise to suspicion that police took him into custody as he was RK’s close aide. When contacted, police refuted Virasam’s charge of arrest.
