Nagpur: Mumbai-based Maoist leader Arun
Ferreira, who was picked up by the city police along with
three others a few years ago in a Naxal-related case, was
on Wednesday released from the Central Prison here following bail.
Ferreira along with Mahesh alias Murli Satyareddy,
Davendra Bhurle and Naresh Bansod were arrested by Crime
Branch of city police from near Deekshabhoomi here on May 7,
2007 for their active involvement in strengthening Naxalite
The suspected Naxalite was since then in custody and was
re-arrested by police in September last year after he released
from jail as he was required in some other Naxal violence
cases in Gadchiroli district, police sources said.
The quartet were carrying a rifle and other Naxal
material when the city police in a swift operation arrested
them, after they assembled here, sources added.
