india Updated: Sep 18, 2006 19:08 IST

Nepalese Maoist leader Chandraprakash Gajurel, who was on Monday released from the Central Prison in Chennai after a three-year detention in a fake passport case, was arrested by the West Bengal Police in connection with a sedition case.

Gajurel, a leader of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoists), was arrested at the airport in Chennai by Tamil Nadu police in 2003, when he attempted to travel on a fake passport and was also detained under National Security Act.

The West Bengal police, waiting to execute a warrant against Gajurel in connection with a sedition case, arrested him immediately after his release. The case was registered against him in Bhakthi Nagar police station in Jalpaiguri District of West Bengal in 2004.
