The Ramagundam police claimed to have thwarted an attempt by the banned CPI (Maoist) outfit to restore its hold in Telangana’s coal belt by arresting a member of the outlawed organisation in Telangana’s coal town of Godavarikhani late on Thursday night.

The arrested accused was identified as P Avinash (29), a native of Satuluru village in Andhra Pradesh’s Palnadu district.

He was apprehended by a night patrol police team while he was moving suspiciously at the RG-I Area General Manager’s Office in Godavarikhani around Thursday midnight.

Producing the accused at a press conference held in Ramagundam on Friday, Ramagundam Police Commissioner Rema Rajeshwari said Avinash, a B.Sc (Nursing) graduate, used to run his family printing press in his native village.

He came in contact with some members of the frontal organisations of the banned outfit and got attracted to the CPI (Maoist) ideology a few years ago.He joined the outlawed CPI (Maoist) about two years ago, she said, adding that he had come to Godavarikhani to revive SIKASA (CPI (Maoist)-affiliated Singareni Karmika Samakhya) activities in the coal town as per the instructions of the CPI (Maoist) leaders.

Some posters containing the CPI (Maoist) ideology and propaganda were seized from the possession of the accused. Further investigation is on.
