Police said Nayak was motivated about joining Naxalism from his college days, being inspired by Maoist leader Saket Rajan.

Bastar’s Inspector General of Police Vivekanand Sinha said he was given important tasks by the Naxalites.

“He was running a blog (naxalrevolution.blogspot.com) since 2006 through which he used to propagate hatred towards the country’s administration and its law enforcement agencies. He used to be constantly in touch with other Maoist organisations situated abroad,” Sinha said.

Sinha added that in order to hide his Naxalite activities he used to run a small micro-finance company.
