Maharashtra ATS claim to have arrested Comrade Ajith

Ajith_pune_759MUMBAI/ THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:The Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) on Saturday arrested veteran Maoist leader Ajith,62, alias K Muralidharan alias Thomas Joseph from a hospital in Talegaon-Dabhade, around 30 km from Pune, along with his aide Ismail Hamaza Chiragpilli, 29, alias Pravin alias James Mathew.
They were produced before Additional Sessions Judge S V Mane who remanded them in police custody for seven days.   The police maintained that Ajith is a close aide of top Maoist leader Ganapathy.
A large contingent of police personnel was deployed at the Shivajinagar District and Sessions Court. The police did not allow the media persons to sit for the remand hearing citing ‘need of secrecy’ and security reasons. The two accused were produced in the court with their faced covered with a hood. When he was escorted out from the ATS office, Ajith told media persons, “I am a member of the CPI Maoist party. I shouldn’t have been arrested like this. My arrest is illegal.”
He and Ismail were residing in Talegaon-Dabhade under false identities. “We arrested them after receiving a tipoff from a source. They belong to the banned CPI (Maoist),” said Bhanupratap Barge, senior inspector of the Pune ATS unit.
Based at Irumbanam, Ajith is the youngest of five sons. His father Kannambally Karunakara Menon was an ambassador in several High Commissions. Young Murali passed his pre-degree at Maharajas with high marks before joining the Regional Engineering College at Kozhikode.
It was there that his name was closely associated with P Rajan, an REC student who was branded a left wing extremist and infamously killed in police captivity.
“Murali’s name had wrongly appeared in the list of accused during that time who had attacked a police station in Kozhikode. Subsequently, he was detained in several camps including the notorious Kakkayam police camp,” a source once close to Murali said.
