NIA searches TS High Court advocates house in Uppal

Visakhapatnam: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on 23 June conducted searches at a Maoist leader's house in Chilkanagar and Telangana Hight Court advocate Shilpa's residence in Uppal in connection with the kidnapping of a missing nursing student P. Radha.

The NIA team also landed in Vizag to investigate the case as Radha's mother had initially lodged a complaint at the Pedabayalu police station in the undivided Vizag district three years ago.

It may be recalled that Pallepati Pochamma, a resident of Kapra in Hyderabad, lodged a complaint at the Pedabayalu police station, which is now in Alluri Sitarama Raju district, claiming that her daughter Radha was kidnapped three years ago by Chaitanya Mahila Sangham (CMS), a frontal organisation of the CPI (Maoist). She added that her daughter was brainwashed by these leaders and taken to the Peddabayalu forest area.

A case has been registered under Section 365, 346,143, 144,147,120 (b) IPC & Sec 16,18,18 (b), 20,38,39 of

UAP Act in Pedabayalu police station.

Later, the case was transferred to NIA.

In her complaint, Radha's mother also mentioned that CMS leaders Dongari Devendra, Dubasi Swapna, and Chukka Shilpa visited her daughter's college and inculcated in her the Maoist ideology. In the guise of providing medical treatment to someone, Radha was taken away by the Maoist leaders and she never returned, Pochamma added.

It is reported that Radha joined the Maoist group and is working with the top brass. Naming the Maoist leaders, the NIA said Gajarla Ravi alias Uday, the secretary of Andhra Odisha Border Special Zone Committee (AOBSZC), and Aruna, Devendra, Swapna and Shilpa were connected with Radha's kidnapping.

The NIA conducted a four-hour search at Shilpa's residence and reportedly picked her up for questioning.
