Cops deny Maoist claim

Thiruvananthapuram, June 30: A pro-Naxalite website claimed that the Maoist leader Sande Rajamouli, who was shot dead by the AP police in an encounter at the Dharmavaram railway station on 23 June, was in fact intercepted in Kerala, while making a phone call from a public booth, near the Kollam bus stand. But IG Mr Arun Kumar Sinha said that this was not true. “We were not contacted by the AP police. According to protocol, if Rajamouli was captured in Kerala, he should have been produced at the nearest police station. Also, there are no eyewitness accounts of any scuffle having taken place near the bus stand,” he said. SNS
