Special judge KD Vadane had stated in his order rejecting Teltumbde’s anticipatory bail plea that there is sufficient evidence collected by the investigating officers to show Teltumbde’s involvement in the alleged offence.

Public prosecutor Ujjwala Panwar had argued on behalf of the police in court against Teltumbde’s anticipatory bail plea. She had claimed that the police have sufficient evidence to prove Teltumbde’s involvement in insurgent activities to destabilise the government through banned Maoist organisations.

Teltumbde is a professor at the Goa Institute of Management.

Several of the alleged Urban Naxals have been raided and arrested by the Maharashtra police in the Elgar Parishad case that had led to the Bhima Koregaon Violence in January 2018.
