Nagpur: A 40-year-old man, suspected to be a
naxal supporter from here, has been arrested and taken to the
neighbouring Chandrapur district for investigation, police
said today.

Bandu Meshram was picked up by the police yesterday from
Gaddigudam square near here when he was about to leave the
city, they said.

Chandrapur police said he was brought to Ram Nagar police
station for interrogation and will be produced before the
local court later in the day.

"Meshram, running a tailor shop, was actively involved in
helping naxals in painting walls and pasting wall-posters
about their activities," they said.

He was facing offences for unlawful activities in the
jurisdiction of Ram Nagar police station area, Chandrapur in
2008.

Meanwhile, Meshram`s wife lodged a complaint with the
Sadar police here alleging his kidnap. Later she was informed
that her husband was taken into custody by Chandrapur police.
