07 June : Pune :- All the accused arrested on Wednesday in connection with the Koregaon-Bhima violence were found to be related to the Naxalite organization. Documents found near them during the raids are related to Naxalism. In addition, co-accused Ravindra Kadam said in a press conference on Thursday that action was taken against the accused on the basis of the evidence that Naxals had used money for Elgar Parishad in Pune.
Four other people, including the organizer of the Elgar Council and the currently arrested Sudhir Dhawale, are related to the Naxalites. However, not all the 250 organizations participating in this conference have any connection with Naxalism. Apart from this, we do not claim to have participated in the violence on the second day in Koregaon Bhima on the second day of January 1, 2018, but investigations are going on in their participation, said Police Co-operation Ravindra Kadam.
