Top Maoist leader Kobad Ghandy on Thursday moved a local court seeking copies of certain documents besides compact discs (CDs) relied upon by the Delhi police to charge sheet him for being member of the banned outfit.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Kaveri Baweja directed the Delhi police special cell to provide him seized memos and copies of CDs purportedly showing him addressing armed Maoist cadre in Nepal.

In an application filed through his advocate Rebecca M. John, the Maoist leader said that he had not been provided the complete documents being used by the Delhi police to prosecute him.

The court posted the matter for further hearing on March 19.

Earlier, on February 19 the city police had charge sheeted Ghandy, accused of trying to set up a network of the banned outfit here, under the stringent Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, besides booking him for various offences under the IPC relating to cheating, forgery and impersonation.

In its over 700-page charge sheet, the police had alleged that 63-year-old Ghandy along with his associates was trying to build a Maoist corridor in the national capital.
