KOCHI: The city police probing the Maoist attack on the project office of National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), Kalamassery, has arraigned a person as accused in the case.
The police got Ramanan, a native of Sasthamangalam, in custody for seven days after filing a petition at the Ernakulam Additional Sessions Court on Thursday.
According to the police, they have received information and statements revealing the involvement of Ramanan behind the NHAI office attack which was executed on January 28. Ramanan was arraigned as the second accused in the case. “Further interrogation is required to reveal the direct involvement of Ramanan. He was in the group that vandalised the office and left pamphlets propagating Maoist ideology and armed movements,” the police official said.
Ramanan is the third accused in the case registered for a similar attack on the corporate office of Nitta Gelatine last year.
