RANCHI: A Maoist guerrilla allegedly involved in the killing of an Indian Police Service (IPS) official last year was arrested in Jharkhand's Pakur district Friday, police said.

According to Jharkhand Police spokesperson, Daud Hembrom alias Vimal Hembrom alias Govinda was arrested on a tip-off from Bargo hill in Pakur district which is around 450 km from Ranchi.

Police seized one pistol, one self loading rifle looted from police, cartridges and mobile phones from the arrested Maoist.
