Advocate arrested over Maoist links

Five months after two women, alleged to be Maoists, were arrested in Karur district, the Q Branch CID Police has arrested an advocate from S. Alangulam village in Madurai on the charge of having links with Maoists.
The Q Branch CID Police had been conducting surveillance on advocate A. Murugan ever since the two alleged Maoists – Kala (53) and Chandra (51) – were arrested in July last year.
Sources said that Murugan’s younger brother, Velmurugan (35), an active Maoist, was accused in two naxal cases in Varushanadu in Theni district and Uthankarai in Coimbatore district. The advocate used to appear for Maoists in court.
