Bhubaneswar: Dunna Kamulamma, the mother of top Naxal leader Dunna Keshav Rao alias Azad on Monday sat on dharna in front the Jharpada jail here in protest against the jail authorities who did not grant her permission to meet her son lodged inside the prison on security reasons.

Kamulamma resorted to dharna in front of the jail in protest against the jail authorities for denying her permission to meet her son Azad. She also indicated that her son would start fast unto death inside the prison from today.

Kamulamma alleged that her son Azad was released on May 24, 2011 by the Andhara police six days after his surrender. But four days after his release by the Andhra police, the Odisha police took Azad on remand on the assurance that he would be released after interrogation. But the Odisha police has lodged Azad in prison since June 1, 2011.

Kamulamma had earlier written a letter to the Chief Minister to release her son from the prison else her son would undertake fast unto death inside the prison.
