Two suspected Maoists — N Dilip Singh and Arun Kumar Singh — who were arrested by the Special Cell of the Delhi Police on Monday, wanted to form a joint ‘United Front’ of the CPI (Maoist) and militant organisations of Jammu and Kashmir and the northeast.

“Their strategy was to support each other and overthrow the Indian government,” said PN Aggarwal, special CP (special cell). “Their joining of hands would also extend to maintaining contact and collaborating in foreign countries.

They thought, the formation of ‘United Front’ would be effective in challenging the Indian Government,” he added.

The arrested are members of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), which provides logistic, training, weapons and means of communication to CPI (Maoist).

“Dilip had come to Delhi from northeast while Arun is from Pune. Their plan was to set up a joint training camp of the CPI (Maoist) and the PLA cadre in Myanmar,” Aggarwal added. Interrogation revealed that Arun had been running a travel agency in Pune since 2008.

A raid was conducted at his Pune residence and his laptop and books containing incriminating material relating to Maoist ideology, intelligence units of India, security forces, Guerrilla warfare, Nepali Maoist movement and its implication, counter insurgencies, proceedings of PLA in coded language, and other materials were seized.

In January this year, the Delhi Police had arrested a 28-year-old self-styled Lieutanant —Oinam Ibomcha Singh — of the banned outfit.
