Four naxals held in Chhattisgarh
The arrested naxals were active as janmilitia members
Four naxals were arrested today from Chhattisgarh's insurgency-hit Kondagaon district by a joint team of security forces, the police said. The arrests were made by a composite squad of the Special Task Force (STF) and Indo Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) while conducting a combing operation to ensure security to the road construction work in the area, a senior police official said.
"The ultras, identified as Pohduram Korram (45), Sonu Netam (35), Sonsai Netam (45) and Kenvsi Kashyap (32), were apprehended from Rajadongri forests under Mardapal police station limits," Kondagaon Additional Superintendent of Police Maheshwar Nag told PTI.
After spotting the security forces, the naxals started bursting crackers to escape from the spot, he said. However, the troopers nabbed them after a brief chase. The arrested naxals were active as janmilitia members and were allegedly involved in several incidents including loot, arson, attempt to murder etc. in the area, the officer said.
