A session’s court in Gadchiroli on Friday rejected the bail plea of Delhi University professor G.N. Saibaba, who was arrested by Gadchiroli police for alleged Maoist links last month.

Police had charged the professor under sections 13,18,20,38 and 39 of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA).

Former journalist and activist Prashant Rahi, who is a co-accused in the case, was also denied bail. Mr. Rahi was arrested by Gadchiroli police from Maharashtra last year for allegedly acting as a courier to the Maoist leadership.
