Friday December 7 2007 10:55 IST

MARKAPURAM: CPI (Maoist) State Committee member Sagar alias N Panduranga Reddy, arrested by the police in Chennai on Wednesday, was on Thursday produced before Additional Judicial First Class Magistrate Ch Venkateswara Rao who remanded the Naxal leader to judicial custody for 15 days.

Sagar was immediately taken to Kadapa jail. The police, however, told the court that they arrested Sagar at Jarugumilli in Prakasam district.

A tense situation prevailed in the court since this morning as large number of people and police turned out to watch the proceedings.

Though the court was closd at 5 p.m., the Magistrate waited for the police to produce Sagar for another 40 minutes.

When the police failed to bring Sagar, the judge left for his bunglow.

The police, who came late by a few minutes, took Sagar to the Magistrate’s residence amidst tight security. In all, Sagar was charged with 24 cases (see box) including half a dozen murders and also blasting of three railway stations in the district.

Meanwhile a former journalist Pittala Srisailam was arrested at Kandukur last night on the charges of working as a courier for the Maoists.

The police produced him before in-charge additional district magistrate D Hemant Kumar at Kandukur who remanded him to judicial custody for 14 days.

Srisailam was initially taken to Ongole sub-jail but when the prison officials refused to accommodate him citing security reasons, he was again produced before the magistrate and sent to Nellore Central Jail.

According to Kandukur DSP Jayaprakash, Srisailam visited Kandukur to carry out the orders of Maoist leader Sambasivudu. “Srisailam came to Kandukur to collect Rs 10 lakh from a person and handover the amount to some others as per the directions of the Naxal leader,” the official told this website's newspaper .
The police have recovered Rs 4,085 and four credit cards from Srisailam.
