Maoist Plotter Captured

The BBC are reporting that another top Maoist leader, Venkateswar Reddy, has been arrested in Kolkata (the BBC still call it Calcutta, obv). Reddy is being touted by the security forces as the man behind last month’s attack on a West Bengal police camp in which 24 paramilitaries were killed.

As it happens, I’m on my way to Kolkata this evening so with a bit of luck I can see him presented before the court and remanded in indefinite custody.
