Two wanted Naxals held in Chhattisgarh

Raipur,November 15: Two wanted Naxals were arrested in a joint operation by local police and BSF in Chhattisgarh's Kanker district, police said today.

The cadres, identified as Shatruram (39) and Saradu Ram Dhruv (31), were nabbed from Siksod police station area yesterday, a senior police official said.

A joint squad of district force and Border Security Force (BSF) was out on an 'area domination exercise' in Siksod region, located around 300 kms from state capital, when they got a tip-off about the presence of the two rebels between Sodwapara and Dongripara villages, he said.
