TDF seeks release of Prof and 4 others, warns of agitation
Hyderabad: Telangana Democratic Forum (TDF) will hold a meeting on April 3 at Sundaraiah Vignana Kendram at Bagh Lingampally here to exert pressure on the Centre for release of suspended Delhi University Prof. G.N. Saibaba and four others for alleged links with Maoists.
Speaking to the media here on Thursday, Forum members Kota Srinivas and revolutionary writer Vara Vara Rao said an action plan would be chalked out at the meeting to organise an agitation demanding release of Saibaba and four others.
Keeping in view the health problems of Saibaba, the Centre should take immediate measures to free him from jail, they said.
The forum also alleged that a seven-member fact-finding team constituted by the forum was arrested by the State police at Dummugudem in Khammam district on December 25 and handed over to their counterparts in Chhattisgarh.
The team was nabbed by the police when it was on its way to Chhattisgarh to find out details of an incident in which a 13-year-old tribal boy was killed and a woman raped. “We demand that the government release these seven members,” Srinivas said.
