HYDERABAD — Even as one of the top most leaders of the CPI Maoist Raji Reddy alias Sattenna was shifted to high security Charlapally jail near Hyderabad on 14-day remand, the outlawed Maoist organisation has vowed to get him released.

Raji Reddy, who was arrested by the police in Kerala last week was later handed over to Andhra Pradesh. The CPI Maoist spokesman Azad in a statement said that Reddy’s arrest was part of a massive counter-revolutionary campaign to suppress the ongoing ‘people’s war’ in the country. He alleged that the state and the central governments were planning to suppress the movement by eliminating the central and state level leadership of the organisation. However, these attempts will not succeed, he asserted.
