Kundapur police nab Neelaguli Padmanabha; wife Renuka cries foul

Kundapur police arrested alleged Maoist Neelaguli Padmanabha on Thursday, for not appearing before court. Two non-bailable offence cases have been filed against him.

Speaking to DH, Superintendent of Police Laxman Nimbargi said that the Maoist did not appear before the court in two separate cases.

Two cases filed

Stating that Padmanabha was involved in two cases at Amasebailu, the SP said that a non-bailable warrant was issued against him in connection with the lapse. He was produced before the district court.

The two cases are in connection with damaging a Forest Department bridge along with other Maoists on September 30, 2004 at Madamakki. The another case was on destroying two bridges belonging to the  department on June 24, 2005.

He did not appear before the court in connection with the charges and hence, two non-bailiable warrants was issued against him.

Appeal by wife

Meanwhile, Padmanabha’s wife Renuka appealed to Chikkamagaluru SP K Annamalai to release him as her husband has quit Naxal activities and is in the process of returning to mainstream of the society.

The SP, in turn, suggested that she may apply for bail in the court.

Speaking to DH, Renuka said that Padmanabha had been to Udupi to attend a court case and the police arrested him when he was returning from the court.

Even afer he surrendered, Padmanabha was in prison for about nine-an-a-half months and was released on bail on August 31, 2017. “Police arrested him all of a sudden when he was attending a court case,” she charged.
