Police nab four Maoists along with arms in J'khand

November 30, 2012

Acting on a tip off, police officials have arrested four Maoists with a cache of arms and ammunitions in Lohardaga district of Jharkhand. Among four, there was a woman, who was forcefully being taken by the Maoists to join as cadre in their banned rebel outfit. The arrested Maoists have been identified as Shiv Kumar Sahu, Gopal Mahato, Ishtiyar Khan and Seema Kumari. Virtually desperate to retain their ever shrinking ground, the Maoists have stepped up their efforts against the government as well as the locals to spread fear psychosis in the Maoist infested areas.
