MUMBAI: The National Human Rights Commission  on Tuesday asked the Maharashtra govt to provide adequate medical facilities to Delhi University teacher G N Saibaba who is lodged in the Nagpur central jail over his alleged Maoist links.

Saibaba’s family had complained to the apex right panel that the professor was not getting proper medical attention. They said he was suffering from permanent post-polio paralysis and spinal pain. He is also a heart patient with high blood pressure. Home Minister R R Patil said police were investigating Saibaba’s alleged support to Maoist activities.

Gadchiroli police arrested Saibaba on May 9. On May 11, Maoists blew up a police van,  killing seven commandos in Gadchiroli, in retaliation for the arrest.
