New Delhi, May 9 IANS | 6 months ago

A Delhi University (DU) professor was arrested here by a team of Maharashtra Police for his alleged involvement in Maoist activities, police said Friday.


"G.N. Saibaba, who teaches English in DU, was arrested from his house located in the varsity's north campus Friday afternoon," Deputy Commissioner of Police Sindhu Pillai told IANS.

The wheelchair-bound professor-cum-activist was arrested and taken to Maharashtra. The police team searched his house and seized some documents.

Sources said the professor was arrested following the arrest of Jawaharlal Nehru University student and activist Hem Mishra for his alleged links with Maoists in Gadchiroli district of Maharashtra.

Saibaba has been agitating against government's anti-Maoist "Operation Green Hunt" in the tribal hinterland of central India.

The teachers association of DU condemned the arrest and said he was arrested without any warning and notice from the middle of a street.

They said his wife was also informed very late.
