Cops to SC: Activist held for Maoist links, not for dissenting opinion

Sep 05, 2018 14:54 IST

The Maharashtra Police has told the Supreme Court that the arrest of five activists in connection with Bhima Koregaon violence was based on cogent evidence linking them with banned CPI (Maoists) and not because of their dissenting opinion. Responding to petition by historian Romila Thapar the police said the activist had planned ambush against country and security forces.
