Raipur: Ten wanted Naxalites carrying awards
on their heads were today arrested from Chhattisgarh`s Bastar
district, police said.

The rebels, each carrying a Rs 4000 award on their head,
were arrested from the forest near Sangvel and Koleng villages
after police cordoned off the area acting on a tip-off that
the Maoists were scheduled to hold a meeting there, Bastar DSP
Sundaraj P said.

The arrested are suspected to be involved in the killing
of Mutanpal sarpanch. Besides, they are also involved in
several other cases of murder and loot, he said.
