Nine Naxals cadres held in Chhattisgarh's Sukma district

Nine lower-rung Naxals were today arrested from separate places in Chhattisgarh's insurgency-hit Sukma district, police said.

Three cadres each were arrested from the Chintagufa, Kukanar and Dornapal police station limits by separate teams of security forces, a local police official told PTI.

Personnels of the District Reserve Guard (DRG) of police, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), its elite unit Commando Battalion for Resolute Action (CoBRA) and local police were involved in the operations, he said.

The arrested Naxals were active members of Maoists' militia, village committees and the Dandakaranya Adivasi Kisan Mazdoor Sangthan (DAKMS), a front organisation, and were involved in incidents of firing on police teams, planting of IEDs and murders, the official said.
