RAIPUR: Three Naxals were Wednesday arrested from separate places in the insurgency-hit Dantewada district of Chhattisgarh, police said.

The arrested cadres were identified as Sonsai Yadav (23), Mahesh Barte (25) and Lingaram Madkami (30), they said.

Acting on a tip-off, a joint party of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and district force was on a combing operation in restive forest of the district, located around 450 kms from the state capital, since late last evening, Dantewada Superintendent of Police Narendra Khare told PTI.

Sonsai was arrested from forest under Kuwakonda police station limits and Mahesh was held from Gadiras police station area. Lingaram was nabbed from Aranpur police station limits, he said.

A muzzle loading gun, couple of detonators, wire and Naxal pamphlets were recovered from their possession, he said.

The rebels were the jan militia members of the outlawed CPI (Maoist) group who were basically involved in the local operations in the region, he said, adding that the interrogation of the trio was on.

According to police sources, the three were allegedly involved in the killing of five police personnel, including Kuwakonda Station House Officer (SHO) Vivek Shukla, in February this year.

They were also involved in several incidents of crime,  including murder, attempt to murder, attacks on police personnel, removing fish plates of railway track, sources added.
