Bhima Koregaon violence: Congress-Maoist link surfaces in police probe, says report
New Delhi, Sept 1 (IBNS): In a report suggesting a conspiracy against the Indian government, a link between the Congress and the Communist Party of India (Maoist) have surfaced in a police probe into the Bhima Koregaon violence.
According to Zee News, top comrades of the CPI (Maoist) urban leadership had multiple meetings with two Congress leaders.
They were in touch between Nov 2017 and May 2018. Several meetings took place in Mumbai and Delhi to seek legal and financial help for their advocacy against the central government.
The intelligence agencies have reportedly received inputs that the Maoists, in a plot against the Indian government, held a confidential meeting with several outfits in Myanmar to procure arms, weapons and provide training.
Police are also suspecting that the leaders at times used proxy numbers to communicate.
However, police didn't reveal the identities of the leaders.
The Bhima Koregaon violence had erupted in early January near Pune.
