Maoists threaten Akshay Kumar, Saina Nehwal over CRPF support

New Delhi: Pamphlets by Maoists threating actor Akshay Kumar and badminton ace Saina Nehwal have been recovered from Bailadila area in Chhattisgarh’s Naxal-affected Bastar district.

Kumar and Nehwal had donated Rs 9 lakh and Rs 6 lakh, respectively, to the families of each of the 25 CRPF jawans who were martyred in a Maoist ambush in the states Sukma district on April 24.

Kumar had also recently met Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi expressing his desire to contribute to the security forces and also with a plan to develop an smartphone app (application) so that any citizen can donate money to the family of those needy jawans or officers who get killed in the line of duty.

The pamphlets were circulated during the week-long anniversary of the Naxal movement, a senior police officer in Bastar said.
