The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Saturday filed a supplementary chargesheet against four CPI (Maoist) cadres in Kolkata for trying to manufacture rockets, launchers, rocket-propelled grenades and 51 mm mortars.

The probe had revealed that the naxal’s secret weapon programme was running under the direct guidance of top naxal leader Muppala Laxmana Rao alias Ganapathi.

The first chargesheet was filed against Sadula Ramakrishna, Dipak Kumar, Sukumar Mondal, Sambu Charana and Bapi Mudi. Now the agency has filed a supplementary chargesheet against Asimkumar Harnath Bhattacharya among others.

They have been charged with running the Maharashtra unit of the Central Technical Committee of the CPI (Maoist) that used to receive regular instructions from Ramakrishna.
