Jailed Naxals to go on hunger strike

NAGPUR: The rebels, lodged in Nagpur central jail for their alleged involvement in the Naxal movement, have decided to observe March 23 later this week as the ‘Political Prisoner’s Day’ on the death anniversary of Bhagat Singh, Sukhdeo and Rajguru.

The Naxal prisoners also plan to observe a hunger strike on the day demanding immediate release of political prisoners and against the trend of rearresting those released, from the jail gate. Apart from jails in Vidarbha, the Naxal prisoners in rest of the state and in states like Andhra Pradesh, would also participate in the hunger strike.
