Medininagar (Jharkhand): A CPI (Maoist) sub-zonal commander and his associate were arrested and a huge quantity of arms and ammunition was seized from them in the jungle area under Panki police station in Palamau district today, police said.

CPI (Maoist) sub-zonal commander Ankit Yadav and his associate Sahid Ansari were arrested during the anti-Naxal operation launched in view of the forthcoming general polls, SP Y S Ramesh said.

Acting on a tip-off that some Maoists will be assembling in the jungle, state district police initiated an operation and arrested the duo and recovered arms and ammunition after interrogating them, he said.

The explosives were allegedly being ferried to Panki from Tal to disrupt the forthcoming elections, he said, adding, further investigation into the matter was on.
