Varanasi (UP), April 23: Two naxalites, including the wife of a slain ultra, of the banned MCC have been arrested from Sakaldiha area in the district while trying to flee to Bihar, police said today.

The arrest of Piyush Kushwaha and Usha, the wife of slain naxalite Sanjay Kol, came after a police team intercepted a jeep near Leva-Iliya road late last night, they said.

The duo, who were carrying a reward of Rs 10,000 on their head, were involved in at least 15 cases of murder and loot, they added.

Their arrest came within seven days of the killing of the Kol in a gunbattle with police.
