2 rebels held near Ranchi

A special task force nabbed two Maoists from Namkum and Tamar on the outskirts of the state capital on Sunday and Monday.

While Tamar police along with 133 CRPF battalion arrested Gazibas Mahli, a rebel leader wanted for several acts of violence and arson, from a local market on Sunday around 2pm, another Maoist, Budhram Munda, was held in Bundu on Monday morning.

SSP Saket Kumar Singh said Mahli was a prize catch. He is wanted in four cases, including a landmine blast in Twada jungle in Tamar, looting in Sarnatoli, blowing up a mobile tower in Jaranga village in Arki and smuggling of explosives. “During interrogation, he said he was involved with the CPI(Maoist) for eight-nine years,” said Singh.

Budhram, on the other hand, belonged to a rebel squad led by Ram Mohan Singh Munda. He is wanted for a couple of cases registered against him under Arms Act at Namkum police station.

“He has confessed to his involvement in an encounter between two rival rebel squads led by Kundan Pahan and Ram Mohan in November 2011 at Heso village,” the SSP said. Both rebels have been forwarded to jail.
