The activist has been booked along with others for allegedly plotting the assassination of PM Modi and inciting mob violence at Bhima Koregaon on January 1, 2018.
The senior professor at the Goa Institute of Management had written an open letter to the public, asking for support.
In it, he wrote: “This may be the vilest plot in post-Independence India that the state has hatched against its detractors in vengeance, disbanding every democratic decency... The case has reached a crucial point where all my innocent beliefs stand shattered and I am devastated by the prospect of imminent arrest. There are nine of my co-accused already in jail facing harassment of the legal process. Unlike me, they did not have an opportunity to seek your help. Your standing in solidarity with me will not only lend me and my family strength to endure this torture but also may give a message to the fascist rulers that there are people in India who say no to them.”
