Two Maoist Camps Razed, Five Rebels Held in Jharkhand

Two Maoist camps were today destroyed by the security forces and five rebels arrested during the three-day ‘Rain Storm’ against the ultra-left wing guerrillas on Jharkhand-Chhatisgarh borders, a police officer said here.

“Two dreaded Maoists Vinod Korva and Manoj Korva were among the five arrested during the joint operation by Jharkhand and Chhatisgarh police forces on the borders of Bhandaria in Garhwa district,” Garhwa Superintendent of Police Michael S Raj told a news conference here.

Madan Khalko, Palas Korva and Kailash were the other three Maoists among the arrested, he said, adding all the five were members of the firing squad led by self-styled area commander Indrajit.

In all, twelve landmines, two hand grenades and Maoist literature were recovered from the two camps, which were destroyed during the joint operation carried out between July 27 and 30, he said.
