Police have also released pictures of four more persons involved in the Koregaon-Bhima riots of January 1 that left a person dead; and appealed to the public to inform them of their whereabouts. One of the incriminating letters has been found from the home of Delhi-based activist Rona Wilson, who was among the five activists arrested from different parts of India on Wednesday as part of the probe into the riots conspiracy and "urban Maoist sympathisers". According to the police, they were thinking along the lines of "another Rajiv Gandhi-type incident" by "targeting his roadshows" which they thought "could be an effective strategy". ASSASSINATION OF PM? Varavara trashes allegations Hyderabad: Denying allegations that the Maoists had planned to assassinate Prime Minister Narendra Modi, revolutionary writer Varavara Rao on Friday said the discovery of the letter was nothing but a plant only to suppress the voices of activists ﬁghting on behalf Dalits, Adivasis and minorities. Varavara Rao said there was an attempt to implicate him in the case as the ‘letter’ mentioned Rao being given the responsibility of carrying out the PM assassination the way Rajiv Gandhi was eliminated in Tamil Nadu in the past. Rao said: “There is no chance of ﬁnding the letter in Rona Wilson’s laptop.

Former prime Minister Gandhi was killed by a LTTE suicide bomber during his campaign for the May 1991 Lok Sabha elections in Sriperumbudur in Tamil Nadu. The investigators also claimed that the communication seized from the laptop of one of the arrested persons says that "Modi has successfully established BJP government in more than 15 states... if this pace continues, then it would mean immense trouble for the Maoist party on all fronts". Accordingly, they were thinking along the lines of "another Rajiv Gandhi-type incident" by "targeting his roadshows" which they though "could be an effective strategy". "It sounds suicidal and there is a good chance we might fail but we feel the party must deliberate over our proposal," one of the letter reads. Continued on P4
