Maoists Arrested in Patna

Patna: Aug. 25, 2008

Police in Patna on Sunday night, following a raid in Kadam Kuan, arrested three hardcore Maoist extremists with allegiance to the ultra group Democratic Revolutionary Front (DRF) as they huddled to hatch their next big act of violence and destruction.

Senior Superintendent of Police Amit Kumar, during a press conference in Patna on Monday, confirmed the arrests of R. C. Prasad of Samastipur, Ashok Yadav of Gaya, and Dharmendra Kumar of Khagaria.

He, however, denied the arrest of a female extremist as earlier rumored.

All three are currently being questioned by the police.

The arrests, however, have raised a red flag among the law enforcement officials who are stepping up on security to thwart any attempt of violence by various Maoist outfits.
