MANANTHAVADY:Rajeesh, who was arrested for suspected pro-Maoist activities in Wayanad, has admitted that he had helped the rebels by arranging transportation facilities and carrying arms and ammunition for them, the police said.
As part of collecting evidence, the police took Rajesh to Kunhome on Saturday. According to the police, the arrested, along with Maoists, had visited the forest areas and colonies at Kunhome several times. The police also said that he had helped them transport arms and ammunition. “He has admitted that he was aware of transportation of arms and ammunitions for the Maoists and that a car owned by him was used for the purpose,” said Mananthavady DySP A R Premkumar.
