Four Naxals were today arrested and a powerful tiffin bomb was recovered from them in Chhattisgarh's insurgency-hit Bastar district, police said.
Acting on a tip-off, the cadres were nabbed from Sulenga village under Mardoom police station limits by a joint team of security forces, said Bastar Superintendent of Police RN Dash. A composite squad of District Reserve Group (DRG), Chhattisgarh Armed Force (CAF) and a team of local police were dispatched to Sulenga, located around 400 kms away from here, following inputs about the location of the ultras there, he said.
Those held were identified as Gangoram (30), Budhram (32), Mallu (30) and Kaje (30), all jan militia members of the banned CPI (Maoist), Dash added.
Besides, a 10 kg tiffin bomb, a detonator, Maoist banners, posters, crackers, electricity wire and other items of daily use were also seized from their possession, the SP said.
