A naxal, carrying a reward on his head, was arrested, while two ultras, also carrying the bounty, surrendered before police in Dantewada district in a separate incident on Monday. Bhadru Podiyami (25) was picked up from a local market under Geedam police station area when he was procuring items of daily use for his colleagues, a senior police official told PTI.
Podiyami, allegedly active as the area head of Dandakaranya Adivasi Kisan Majdoor Sangthan (DAKMS) — a frontal outfit of Maoists, was looking after the supply of commodities of daily use and other general items to rebels in Geedam, Tumnar and Barsoor area of Dantewada.
Earlier, he was arrested in 2009 when he was working as a Jan Militia member for the outlawed CPI (Maoist), but was released after a year, the official said, adding that Podiyami was carrying a reward of Rs one lakh on his head.
