A laptop and CD belonging to an arrested scientist who is alleged to be a top ranking Maoist contain videos and newspaper clippings of Jharkhand inspector Francis Induwar who was abducted and beheaded by the rebels, police claim.

Ravi Sharma, 49, and his wife B Anuradha, 45, were arrested by Hazaribagh police on Wednesday. Police seized a laptop, CDs and other material from the couple. On Friday, they were taken into three days police remand for interrogation.

"The laptop and CDs have visuals shown by some news channels of the abduction and killing of slain cop Induwar. Scans of newspaper reports in local and national dailies have also been found in the laptop and CDs," Pankaj Kamboj, the Hazaribagh superintendent of police, told IANS.

He said the videos and newspaper clippings relate to Induwar's abduction, killing and subsequent reactions to the incident. Police say this indicates Sharma was involved in his killing.

According to police sources, Sharma has admitted that the Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist) extorts money worth Rs 25 crore per annum.

The couple arrived in Jharkhand when it was still part of undivided Bihar in 1997. Sharma is known by different aliases like Arjun, Mahesh, Ashok. He is a member of the Bihar Jharkhand Special Action Committee (BJSAC), say police. He is also allegedly linked to the central monitoring committee of the CPI-Maoist.
