7 Naxals Arrested By CRPF In Chhattisgarh

Guwahati: Seven Naxals from the Sukma district of Chhattisgarh were arrested by the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and Chhattisgarh Police in a joint operation, officials said on Thursday.

The seven Maoists were identified as Kalmu Satyam, Kalmu Joga, Madivi Manga, Madakam Aitha, Kikidi Joga, Vando Unga and Kalmu Bheema by the joint troops, who also conducted the search operation.

“All the seven apprehended were Nimmalagudem’s Revolutionary People’s Council (RPC) militia members of the banned Communist Party of India (CPI) Maoist Party,” the CRPF said in a statement.

Satyam, Joga, Manga and Unga are RPC members for the last three years; Aitha and Joga are RPC members for the last two years, while Bheema is an RPC member for the last year, it said.

“The Naxals were apprehended in a joint area domination operation launched by 141 Battalion of the CRPF and Chhattisgarh Police in the late hours on Wednesday around Kondavai village in Sukma,” said the CRPF, which is tasked to provide internal security in Naxal-affected states.

“The troops operated carefully combing the area throughout the night,” it said.

The CRPF and Chhattisgarh Police’s relentless operations and the creation of Forward Operating Bases have caused a continued decline in Maoist activity in the state, but the Forces are still conducting search operations in the areas with extreme caution to prevent the possibility of Maoist resurgence, it said.

In order to do this, area domination operations are carried out in addition to the search and destroy operation intended to find the weapons, ammo, and explosives that the Maoists have hidden, added the force.
