SHIVPURI: A woman and an associate of dacoit Chandan Gadaria, who was recently killed in an encounter, were arrested here in the wee hours today, police said.

Chanda Gadaria, said to be Chandan Gadaria's paramour, and his close associate Bhoja Gadaria were nabbed from the Amola forest area, where the encounter took place a few days back in which Gadaria was killed.

"We have arrested Chanda and Bhoja, who had managed to escape after the encounter in which Chandan Gadaria was killed," Shivpuri SP M U Qureshi said.

Both of them were carrying a reward of Rs 10,000 each on their heads.

Two 315-bore rifles were recovered from their possession, he said.

During questioning, Chanda told police that the late dacoit-turned-MP Phoolan Devi was her role model. She wanted to be a parliamentarian.

"With their arrest the entire Gadaria gang has been wiped out," the SP added.
