Gaya: Acting on a tip off, police and security forces in Gaya nabbed five Maoists and recovered arms from the rebels.

Earlier this month, a joint team of the Bihar police and paramilitary forces had seized a large quantity of explosives from a Maoist hideout in a forest in Jamui district.

"In a combined operation of the Gaya police and paramilitary forces, we gained success and nabbed five hardcore Maoists from various places in Gaya district," said Nishant Tiwari, Senior Superintendent of Police.
The Maoists, who say they are fighting for the rights of the poor and landless, control some of the mineral-rich areas of the country and operate in large swathes of the eastern, central and southern areas.
