NEW DELHI: The contents of the laptop and the computer hard disc purportedly seized from the Badarpur residence of top Maoist leader Kobad Ghandy have indicated that he attended crucial party meetings in different States.

The police found several compact discs at his residence containing footage of naxal meetings apparently organised in Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh.

Ghandy’s computer and a pen drive allegedly contained literature and articles on Maoist movement, a large part of which is suspected to have been prepared by him.

The agencies have reportedly come across information suggesting that Ghandy had in the past allegedly met a top Maoist leader in Nepal to discuss various issues pertaining to the movement.

They also suspect that he had visited some other countries on forged travel documents. However, facts in this regard are yet to be verified as the police have not recovered his passport so far.
