The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Friday produced dreaded Maoist operative Gameli China Mohan Rao before a local court after the completion of his six-day remand.

A team of the NIA, led by an SP ranked officer, produced Rao before the Khurda District Judge Court which sent him to judicial custody. He is believed to have told the Central agency about the plans of the outlawed outfit.

An area committee member of Koraput-Srikakulam Joint Division of Andhra Odisha Border Special Zonal Committee (AOBSZC) of the CPI (Maoist) organisation, Rao is accused in two key cases.

He was involved in the attack on a BSF convoy in Malkangiri which had led to death of four personnel including a Commandant ranked officer in February last year.

It was the first case of NIA taking over a Maoist incident in the State.

When Rao was arrested by Rayagada police in May, the cops had seized from his possession a firearm with the number 107/37 which belonged to the slain Commandant of BSF JK Khaswan.

He was also charged in the abduction of Laxmipur MLA Jhina Hikaka on March 24 last year. Besides, Rao is allegedly involved in about 15 incidents of murder and Maoist violence in Odisha as well as neighbouring Andhra Pradesh.

He had also served as the body guard of central committee member Rama Krishna, secretary of AOBSZC.

The Maoist operative is a native of Visakhapatnam district’s Goudaput village.
