Man who intruded into Nagpur airport premises mum on intention
The city police are yet to unravel the mystery behind an intruder's act of jumping over the wall to enter the Nagpur airport premises and attack a CISF sentry before being overpowered and arrested.
Anant Nayak, the 25-year-old from Midnapore district of West Bengal who was caught on Tuesday, hasn't yet spoken out about his intention behind the act.
The police are intrigued by his silence and have contacted their West Bengal counterparts and verified if he belongs to Chikuapal village and is a labourer.
Commissioner of Police Ankush Dhanvijay said, "The police there told us he has a family, including two sons and wife, and has no criminal background."
Inspector Arun Rautwar said, "A railway ticket was found on his person. He has told us that he was part of a group of 12 labourers employed with a West Bengal contractor, Dilip Baghel, who were travelling together in a train. While 11 disembarked along the way and headed for Gujarat where they were engaged in a mobile tower erection work, Nayak reached Nagpur and got down to fetch water. He says he didn't notice the train leaving. But he is tight-lipped over how he reached the airport after that and why he entered the premises and attacked security man Pravinkumar Jha."
Asked if he was employed with any company in the city, Rautwar said, "Apparently not. But we have called his contractor Baghel, who is arriving tomorrow. We will inquire more with him."
Sources said, "Though it seems unlikely, the investigators are not ruling out a possible Naxal connection. It is indeed intriguing why he should do what all he did, including hitting the CISF jawan with stones by making a catapult out of a cloth."
Dhanvijay said, "We checked if his village belongs to the Naxal-affected part but we were told it is far away from the affected parts."
