DU Professor Saibaba Sentenced to Life for Maoists Links
Delhi University professor GN Saibaba has been given life sentence by a court in Maharashtra's Gadchiroli for his links with the Maoists. The court has also found JNU student Hem Mishra and four others guilty of waging war against the country and supporting the ideology of the banned organisation, CPI (Maoist). Judge Suryakant Shinde sentenced Saibaba, Mishra and three others to life while sixth person Vijay Tirke was sentenced to 10 years rigorous imprisonment.
Saibaba was picked up from his house in Delhi in 2013 after Mishra and two others were caught with some incriminating letters and a memory card which contained, according to police, incriminating documents about the banned organisation.
