Three Maoists, including two women, who carried rewards on their heads, were arrested from separate places in Maoist-hit Bastar region of Chhattisgarh, the police said here today.

Two Maoist cadres were nabbed from the Maraskol forest area under Dhaudai police station limits of Narayanpur district last evening, Narayanpur Additional Superintendent of Police O P Sharma told PTI.

A joint squad of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and the district police was on a combing operation in the restive Dhaudai region, which is around 350 km away from Chhattisgarh's state capital Raipur, when it spotted Maoist rebels trying to flee, he said.

They were nabbed after a chase. During interrogation, they admitted to their involvement in the Maoist movement, he said.

The duo has been identified as Sukhdeyi (48), head of the Kongera Maoist Janatana Sarkar and a wanted woman cadre who carried a reward of Rs 5,000 on her head, and Dasu Ram Salaam (24), a member of the Daula Local Operation Squad, he said.

In a separate incident, a wanted Maoist was arrested from his residence in Maalnar village under the Mardapal police station limits of Kondagaon district late last evening, a senior police official said.

A joint patrol of the CRPF and the district police force was on an area domination operation in the forests of Mardapal when it received a tip-off about the presence of a Maoist cadre in the Maalnar village.

The arrested Maoist has been identified as Mate Bai, a member of the Chema Jan Militia who carried a reward of Rs 5,000 on her head, the official said.

All three arrested Maoists were allegedly involved in several cases including loot, arson and murder, he said.
