Police raid house in Mettupalayam

COIMBATORE: Police conducted raids at a house in Mettupalayam on Thursday on suspicion that Maoist sympathisers lived there. Police interrogations revealed that one of the arrested Maoists — S Kannan — and a few other Maoists responsible for recruiting a student, A Santhosh Kumar, to a Maoist group had held a secret meeting there. The raids were conducted based on information obtained from Kannan during inquiry. Kannan had allegedly informed police that Maoist sympathisers and members of various banned political groups had held a meeting there. Valparai police deputy superintendent of police Sakthivel and inspector Vivekanandan conducted the raids at the house in Kumarapuram in Mettupalayam.
“We have found several documents, notices and other evidence at the house that was converted into a library,” said a police official. The house was rented by these sympathisers to hold meetings. The police took Kannan to the spot for location identification. Kannan raised slogans stating that false cases were foisted on him. Meanwhile, principal district judge (in-charge) Sakthivel extended the judicial custody of five Maoists — arrested from here on May 4 — till July 8. Shyna Roopesh was brought from Ernakulam while Anoop Mathew George and C Veeramani were brought from Coimbatore central prison. Kannan and Roopesh were not produced in the the court. The judge dismissed the bail petitions of Nagamanickam and Masanamuthu, two Maoist sympathisers who were arrested by the Peelamedu police.

Anoop to be sent back to Coimbatore jail
The Ernakulam district principal and sessions on Wednesday extended the police custody of Anoop, an alleged Maoist operative and accused in the Nitta Gelatine attack case by one day. The special investigation team probing the case on Wednesday produced Anoop before the court on expiry of his 14-day custody period. On Thursday, he will be taken back to the Coimbatore Central Jail along with Shyna, another Maoist operative who is under police custody. While being produced, Anoop submitted that the SIT had forcibly collected his thumb impression on a blank paper. Earlier, he had also raised slogans supporting the protests against Nitta Gelatine at Kathikudam and hailing Maoist operations in the Western Ghats.
The case pertains to the ransacking of the Nitta Gelatine office at Panampally Nagar, SBT Avenue Road, on November 11, 2014. Meanwhile, officials said Anoop had not been cooperating with investigations during the custody period and did not respond to most of the questions. He had even turned violent on occasions during grilling. Anoop, a native of Pathanamthitta district, was brought to Kochi based on a production warrant, issued on the basis of a request by Bijo Alexander, assistant commissioner of police, Thrikkakara, who is heading the investigation in the case. Anoop was arrested by the Tamil Nadu Q branch on May 4 and is currently lodged in the Coimbatore Central Jail.
