A Naxalite was today arrested from Chhattisgarh's insurgency-hit Sukma district, police said. Midiam Bheema was apprehended by a joint team of the state police's Special Task Force (STF) and District Force from a market under Dornapal police station, Additional SP Jitendra Shukla told PTI. Dornapal is located at a distance of about 500 km from the state capital. Acting on a tip-off, the security forces arrested Bheema, who reportedly admitted to be a member of the outlawed CPI(Maoist), the ASP said. Bheema was wanted in connection with the murder of a villager at his native place Medwahi in 2008 and another murder in Gorgunda in 2010.
He was also allegedly involved in an attack on a police team near Rangaiguda in 2010, he added. Bheema was produced in a court here which sent him to judicial custody.
