The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday raided multiple locations across the four states of Telangana, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala in a case involving a top CPI (Maoist) leader.

NIA teams swooped on the premises of accused and suspects at six locations – two in Hyderabad, and one each in Thane, Chennai, Malappuram, and Palakkad.

The agency conducted extensive searches, leading to the seizure of incriminating documents and books related to the proscribed CPI (Maoist) outfit. Six mobiles with SIM cards and Rs 1,37,210 cash were also seized.

The case was originally registered by Cyberabad (Telangana) Police following the arrest of Sanjay Deepak Rao, a Central Committee Member of CPI (Maoist).

The police had also seized a revolver with live rounds, forged Aadhaar cards, Rs 47,280 cash, and other materials from his possession.

The NIA, which took over the case (RC-01/2024/NIA/HYD) in January, found during investigations that Sanjay Deepak Rao was actively working for the banned Naxal organisation in the tri-junction area of Kerala, Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka.

Under his direction, other frontline members of CPI (Maoist) were operating in the urban areas of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, and Kerala to promote the activities of the outfit. Further investigations into the case are continuing.
