A Hyderabad court on Tuesday night issued search warrants against revolutionary writer Varavara Rao in connection with letters seized from two arrested couriers of a top Naxal leader in Andhra Pradesh.

Gurajala Munsiff Magistrate in Guntur, K Subba Rao, issued the search warrants on an application by Guntur police that they wanted to search Rao's house. The police said the letters, which were reportedly written by Rao to CPI (Maoist) secretary Ramakrishna, had "incriminating" material.

Meanwhile, a police team led by a deputy superintendent of police is in Hyderabad to search Rao's house, police sources said.

Guntur police recently arrested two youths, alleged couriers of Ramakrishna, and seized two letters from them.

On the search warrant, Varavara Rao told, "It is ridiculous to search my house."

Rao, along with balladeer Gadar and Kalyana Rao, had recently pulled out as Maoist emissaries.
