Mumbai, Feb 2
Maharashtra Police have arrested dalit scholar Anand Teltumbde at Mumbai airport today in connection with his alleged links with the outlawed CPI-Maoist in the Bhima Koregaon case.
According to sources, a special court in Pune had rejected his anticipatory bail application yesterday.
Additional Sessions Judge Kishor Vadane had observed that an investigating officer has collected sufficient material to show the involvement of Teltumbde in the case.
According to police, Maoists had supported the Elgar Parishad conclave held in Pune on December 31, 2017, and the inflammatory speeches there led to violent clashes at the Koregaon Bhima war memorial the next day.
