KOLKATA: In a pre-dawn operation, three suspected Maoist leaders were arrested and a huge cache of arms and ammunition and some literature seized from them, police said.

West Bengal Home Secretary Ardhendu Sen told reporters that the suspected Maoists were going from Asansol by car.

They were arrested at Goaltor in Paschim Medinipur.

They are believed to have been on their way to Lalgarh, which is at the centre of a tribal agitation on and off for quite some time now.
