Naxalite leader arrested

Ranchi, Aug. 8: Self-styled Naxalite regional commander Bhusan Yadav, alias Karanji, was arrested from Mandar, some 30km from here on Ranchi-Daltonganj road, last night.

Ranchi senior superintendent of police Praveen Kumar said that Yadav was caught by a police team when he was coming towards the state capital from Chanho on a motorbike. “Upon getting a tip-off, the police team chased him on motorbikes. Finally, at Mandar when he found himself surrounded by the police, he got off his bike and tried to run away,” said Kumar. Yadav also broke one of his legs while trying to escape.

A country-made rifle and 10 live cartridges were recovered from Semartand, a village in Chanho block, after interrogating Yadav, who was the regional commander of Jharkhand People’s Liberation Army, a breakaway Maoist group
