RAIPUR: Seven Naxals were today arrested in Chhattisgarh's insurgency-hit Sukma district, police said.

A joint team of police's Special Task Force (STF), District Reserve Guard (DRG), Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and CoBRA (CRPF's elite unit) nabbed the rebels under the jurisdiction of Bhejji police station, Deputy Inspector General of Police (south Bastar range) Sundarraj P told PTI.

The arrested Naxals were identified as Kunjam Joga (30), Muchaki Hadma (20), Madvi Deva (25), Muchaki Payka (27), Kuhrami Sukka (21), Madkam Kosa (45) and Madkam Hunga (41), he said.

They were active as members of the Dandakaranya Adivasi Kisan Majdoor Sangthan (DAKMS), a front organisation of the Naxals, he said.
