Hyderabad: The city-based Revolutionary Writers Association (RWA) on Saturday condemned the arrest of G N Saibaba, a Delhi University professor, for his alleged Naxal links, and his subsequent suspension from the University.
Saibaba was arrested by Gadchiroli police of Maharashtra earlier this month on the charge of links with Naxals and for providing them logistical support and helping them in recruitment.
In a statement here, RWA demanded his immediate release.
His arrest, carried out in "illegal manner", and branding him as a Maoist exposed the state`s "anti-people" strategy, it added.
The association has also planned seminar in the city tomorrow on the topic `Democratic Rights- Globalisation ? Hindutwa`.
