Four Naxalites and their two supporters were arrested and explosives were seized from them in Chhattisgarh’s Sukma district, the police said on Sunday (April 7). The six were apprehended between Tumdipara and Misiguda villages under Kerlapal police station limits on Saturday evening when a joint team of District Reserve Guard (DRG) and the district force was on a search operation, a police official said.

The operation was kickstarted upon receiving the inputs about the presence of Naxalites in Siresetti, Gadgadpara, Gogunda, Tumdipara and nearby villages in the Kerlapal area, he said.

On spotting the uniformed personnel, the six tried to escape but were rounded up by the security forces, he said.

“Two tiffin bombs, each weighing 3 kg, three gelatin rods, ten detonators, one bundle of electric wire and 15-meter-long cordex wire were recovered from them,” he said.

Those held were identified as Kunjam Hurra (24), Madvi Deva (27), Padam Pandu (26) and Podium Lakha (28) – all Jan Militia members of Naxalites, and two Maoist supporters, identified as Padam Hidma (28) and Madvi Arjun (26).

“During interrogation, the Naxalites said their commander Roshan, alias Bheema gave the explosives and other materials to them to target security forces,” he added.
