Police get 3-day custody of suspected Maoists

The Judicial Magistrate-I here on Tuesday granted the ‘Q’ Branch CID three days police custody of two suspected women Maoists who were arrested recently.

The Q Branch police had arrested M. Kala (52) of Theevattipatti in Salem district and Chandra (51), both of whom were working in a textile unit, alleging that they were involved in subversive activities.

The police booked them under IPC Section 120 (b) (criminal conspiracy) and Sections 18, 18-A, 18-B and 38 of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.

The ‘Q’ Branch CID, who brought Kala and Chandra from Tiruchi prison and produced them before the Judicial Magistrate-I Mohanavalli on Tuesday, sought five-day police custody to interrogate them.

However, the Magistrate granted three days custody and directed the police to produce them on July 29.
