Maoist leader trying to spread Naxalism in NE arrested by NIA | India News

NEW DELHI: The National Investigation Agency on Monday arrested CPI (Maoist) activist Samrat Chakraborty alias Nilkamal Sikdar in North 24 Parganas in West Bengal in a case related to CPI (Maoist)’s efforts to spread roots in Assam and the northeast in general.
NIA had registered the case earlier this year, with the FIR saying that CPI (Maoist) has been making attempts to set up base in Assam and the northeast and build a strong armed cadre there to wage war against democratically-elected governments. It had alleged a heavy funds flow from the eastern regional bureau towards this end.
An active member of CPI (Maoist), Samrat, also known by multiple monikers like Amit, Argha, Nirmal, Nirman and Nilkamal Sikdar, was in touch with the main accused in the case, Arun Kumar Bhattacharjee alias Kanchan da, prior to the latter’s arrest. At the time of the arrest, Kanchan was found to be in possession of Rs 3.6 lakh, described by NIA as proceeds of terrorism.
The agency on Tuesday claimed that Samrat was acting as a linkman between the top hierarchy of CPI (Maoist) and Kanchan da. tnn
