Naxal taken to West Bengal by train
Coimbatore: Shyamcharan Tudu, a suspected Naxalite, arrested on charges of involvement in the 2010 Silda paramilitary outpost attack in West Bengal that left 24 personnel dead, was taken to Kolkata from here by train on Monday.
"Due to security reasons, we will not be able to divulge the details of the transit," said Vivek Kumar Verma, Deputy Superintendent of Police, West Midnapore District, who along with seven other police personnel, is taking the accused by the Alleppey-Dhanbad Train.
"Anyhow, we have to produce the accused before the Court on April 11 and we have to reach there by then," he said.
One of the team members, however, said they would break the journey and get down at Chennai and from there move forward in available trains.
"Being a high risk and rank accused, said to be second lieutenant to Maoist zonal leader Jayanto, his fellowmen and sympathisers would be watching the movement en route, as we have to cover nearly four states," the officer said.
A police team from West Midnapore district of West Bengal arrested 26-year-old Tudu, who was working at a factory in Peelamedu area, near here yesterday.
He was allegedly part of a 60-member group that attacked the Eastern Frontier Rifles (EFR) outpost on February 15.
