Two days after five persons were arrested in connection with the Bhima-Koregaon violence, public prosecutor in the case has revealed that the Pune police have seized a sensational letter that suggests a plan to assassinate Prime Minister Narendra Modi in “another Rajiv Gandhi type incident” by “targeting his roadshows”.
Seeking police custody of the five arrested persons who have been booked under provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, district government pleader Ujjwala Pawar told a Pune court about information gathered from the material seized from those arrested. The letter has allegedly been found from Rona Jacob's laptop.
Republic TV has accessed the chilling letter in which some activists have "proposed concrete steps to end Modi-raj".
"We are thinking along the lines of another Rajiv Gandhi type incident. It sounds suicidal and there is a good chance that we might fail but we feel that the party PB/CC must deliberate over our proposal," says the letter.
The letter also charts out a plan to target PM Modi's roadshows as it says, "targeting his road shows could be an effective strategy." The letter reads: Defeating Hindu Fascism has been our core agenda and a major concern for the party. Several leaders from the secret cells, as well as open organisations, have raised this issue very strongly. We are working to consolidate ties with the like-minded organization, pol. parties, representatives of minorities across the country. Modi led Hindu Fascist regime is bulldozing its way into the lives of indigenous Adivasis. In spite of big defeats like Bihar and West Bengal, Modi has successfully established BJP govt in more than 15 states. If this place continues then it would mean immense trouble for the party on all fronts. Greater suppression of dissent and more brutal form of Mission 2016 (OHG).Com.Kisan and few other senior comrades have proposed concrete steps to end Modi- raj. We are thinking along the lines of another Rajiv Gandhi type incident. It sounds suicidal and there is a good chance that we might fail but we feel that the party PB/CC must deliberate over our proposal. Targetting his road-shows could be an effective strategy. We collectively believe that survival of the party is supreme to all sacrifices. Rest in the next letter''. Read the full letter.

"We were investigating their links and in this connection, we raided houses of some of them. From Rona Wilson's house, we recovered pen drive, hard disk and some other documents which were sent to forensics. We also got to know Rona Wilson's and Surendra Gadling's connection with Naxals. Later we found their links with the other three people and arrested them accordingly. Surendra Gadling was presented before the court after he was arrested yesterday morning and we were given his police custody for 8 days," he
Kadam said that from the documents obtained from the accused, it indicates that "somehow they are indirectly connected with the violence".
