Chatradhar Mahato brought to Kolkata for interrogation

Posted by Admin on October 3, 2009

Chhatradhar mahato 22Chhatradhar Mahato, the leader of the Peoples’ Committee against Police Atrocities (PCPA), was taken to CID headquarters in Kolkata on Friday evening for interrogation.

Mahato, who was brought from Midnapore, will be interrogated by a team of CID officials in connection with the criminal charges registered against him in Lalgarh police station. Rajkanojia, ADG (CID), said, “The CID will gradually take control over the criminal cases registered against Mahato.” He hinted at close coordination between state Intelligence wing and Kolkata police in the investigation process.

Policemen posing as journalists had arrested Mahato on September 26 from a village in Lalgarh and slapped charges under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act on him.

Earlier in the day, Mahato was questioned by Jharkhand and Orissa Police in Midnapore. Manoj Verma, SP West Midnapore, said during interrogation, Mahato disclosed a lot of valuable information, which the police are verifying.

Police sources said there was no doubt that PCPA continued its activities as a frontal wing of the CPI (Maoist), a banned organisation under the UAPA. The police have collected evidences against Mahato that point to his direct links with the Maoists.

According to a source in police, the PCPA had collected money from businessmen, local industry and school teachers from Lalgarh, Belpahari and other areas of West Midnapore. Various groups were formed to collect money. It is learnt that a local cement factory regularly contributed money to the group to ensure that its plant ran smoothly.

Mahato is currently on police remand. On Thursday, the ACJM court in Jhargram turned down the state government’s plea seeking his police custody for 25 days under the UAPA provisions. Instead the court extended his police remand by another seven days.

In a related development, police produced Sukh Shanti Baske, cashier of PCPA at ACJM court in Jhargram on Friday. The ACJM court remanded him in police custody for seven days. Baske was detained by police in Lalgarh on Wednesday. IE
