DUMKA: A CPI (Maoist) operative who was allegedly involved in several Naxal-related incidents including the killing of Pakur district Superintendent of Police Amarjeet Balihar in 2013, was today arrested from Chatupara locality of Dumka district.

Dumka Superintendent of Police Vipul Shukla told reporters that Seemant Soren (22), a resident of Jamboni village under Kaksa police station of Burdwan district in adjoining West Bengal, had joined the ultra outfit about six years back and was active in the Giridih and Dumka districts of Jharkhand.
