Three of them belong to People’s Liberation Army (PLA) while the two are related to the Communist Party of India (Maoist). The convicted have been identified as PLA’s N Dilip Singh (alias Wangba, N. Ranjit, Jana) of Manipur, Senjam Dhiren Singh (alias S. Babu Singh, Dhiren Singha, Raghu) and Arnold Singh (alias Kh. Arnold Singh, Arnold Singha, Becon) of Assam. The others are Indranil Chanda (alias Raj) and Amit Bagchi (alias Amitabh, Alok, Sumit, Arun, Anil, RK da) of West Bengal, both belonging to CPI (Maoist), NIA said in a statement.

NIA registered the case on July 1, 2011 following inputs that the PLA, a proscribed terrorist organisation, hatched a conspiracy to destabilise the country with the support of CPI (Maoist), the NIA statement said.

“CPI (Maoist) leaders had agreed to recognize and support the separatist activities of PLA for the creation of the northeastern state of Manipur, as a separate nation. The PLA leadership, on its part, decided to support the continuing war of CPI (Maoist) for overthrowing the constitutionally elected government of India,” NIA said.

In its investigations, NIA found that PLA established a liaison office in Kolkata, where a meeting was held between PLA/RPF and CPI (Maoist) leaders. Modalities were worked out at the meeting for taking unified action for waging a war against the Union of India. A bipartite meeting was also held between PLA/RPF and CPI (Maoist) leadership in Jharkhand for imparting military training to cadres of CPI (Maoist) by PLA/RPF instructors.

In its investigation, it was found that the PLA president complimented the general secretary of CPI (Maoist) on carrying out an attack on the security forces on April 6, 2010, which resulted in the killing of 76 CRPF personnel in Chhattisgarh.

Investigations also revealed that the PLA provided logistic support to Maoist cadres and both groups were regularly communicating and exchanging e-mails. The accused travelled to different places in India and abroad, and created fake IDs and bank accounts under assumed names.
