Telangana: NIA raids house of CH Shilpa, a High Court lawyer and a member of Chaitanya Mahila Sangam
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) conducted raids on the house of Ch Shilpa, a practising advocate of the High Court and reportedly a member of Chaitanya Mahila Sangham (CMS), a frontal organisation of CPI (Maoist) in Hyderabad today. She has been reportedly taken into custody.
The raids were conducted in connection with a girl’s kidnapping case booked by the Visakhapatnam police against Shilpa and others, which is now being investigated by the NIA. More details are awaited.
Radha, a nursing student has been missing for the last three-and-a-half years and a case has been registered under kidnapping, wrongful confinement, unlawful assembly, rioting, criminal conspiracy and various sections of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act.
The girl’s mother alleged that leaders of CMS, including Shilpa and others met their daughter at her college and influenced her towards extremism. In December 2017, one of the members of the organisation forcibly took away Radha on the pretext of providing medical treatment to someone. Since then, she has not returned home.
