Bihar: 18 Naxalites arrested

Biharsharif: Eighteen members of the banned CPI-Maoist were arrested and a huge cache of firearms and ammunition recovered from them while the rebels were enacting a drama with real weapons in Bihar's Nalanda district on Tuesday.

Acting on a tip-off that the rebels were enacting a drama "Sultana Daku" with real weapons at Sakri village, teams from five police stations rushed there and caught them in the act, literally.

Eight rifles, three country-made carbines, three pistols, a double barrel gun and 50 bullets were seized from them, SP Amit Kumar told reporters. PTI
