Rourkela: Three top Assam-based Maoist
leaders who were arrested by Rourkela police on Saturday from Saranda forest, were today taken on transit remand by the Assam police for further interrogation.



Police sources said a team of Assam police and IB had
visited this city and found some vital clues linking their
activities with the banned outfit of ULFA group.



Rourkela police had arrested Aditya Borah and two of
his aids - Trithraj Orang and Asik Sabar alias Ajaya - besides
seizing arms, explosives and Maoist literatures.
During interrogation by local police, the Maoists have
revealed that they were here to meet the rebel leader Kisanji
on the direction of their Assam-based leader Dipak Ray.



Assam police and a Central Intelligence Bureau (IB)
team comprising Additional Director General (ADG), Prithviraj
Singh and Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) of Assam,
D K Datta Choudhury, both members of Special Task Force, had
interrogated the three arrested Maoists and have reportedly
come up with some startling revelations.
Though there was no official confirmation about the
disclosures made, it was suspected that the Maoists have links
with some Assam-based politicians, the sources claimed.
