Maoist leader held in Andhra
Senior Maoist leader Sriramula Srinivas alias Sudarshan, who was arrested by Andhra Pradesh police near Wyra forest in Khammam district bordering Odisha late on Saturday, was produced before a magistrate on Sunday and remanded in judicial custody.
A top functionary of the Andhra-Orissa Border special zonal committee of CPI-ML, Sudarshan, 55, had remained underground most of the time. He was wanted in connection with several cases including an assassination bid on then chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu in 2003 at Alipiri near Tirupati and the killing of former Andhra Pradesh home minister A Madhava Reddy.
He carried a reward of R20 lakh on his head, said AV Ranganath, superintendent of police, Khammam.
