NIA to file charge sheet in Naxal funding case, top CPI(M) central committee leader among those named

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) is all set to file the charge sheet in a Naxal funding case. The charge sheet is expected to expose the interstate module of CPI(M) in Jharkhand and Telangana. As per a report in India Today, the NIA has named CPI(M) top central committee leader Sudhakar as one of the five main accused in the case.

As per the report the NIA has asked for prosecution sanction against the five main accused from the Ministry of Home Affairs. a 35-page charge sheet has been prepared with a 1000 page annexure. The case had come to light in 2017 when the Ranchi Police had arrested the top Maoist leader Sudhakar’s brother, B Narayan and his business partner Sathyanarayan Reddy red-handed in Ranchi. They were arrested with over 25 lakh rupees in cash and about half KG of gold biscuits. They were trying to send the money to Telangana. After the major arrest, the NIA had started probing the interstate module of the Naxal operations.

When the arrest was made, it was the PAN and AADHAR cards of the accused that had given them away. The police were keeping an eye on the operations of their accounts.

The Naxal leader, Sudhakar was reportedly involved in collecting extortion money from businessmen in Jharkhand, Odisha, Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh. The NIA probe is expected to be a major breakthrough in solving Naxal insurgency. In August 2017, Home Minister Rajnath Singh had hailed the role of NIA in stopping terror funding adding that the NIA has a conviction rate of 95% and its name strikes fear in those involved in terror funding.

As per the reports, NIA has been able to unearth the interstate module by taking into account both scientific evidence and open sources. Once the charge sheet gets clearance from the MHA, it is likely to be filed by the end of the month.

The NIA charge sheet in the Naxal funding case comes after the NIA had filed charge sheet in the terror funding cases in the Kashmir Valley. With this, it seems like the Modi government is all set to and is effectively following the money trail.
