Bhadrachalam (AP): Two naxal militia members, wanted in connection with a string of "destructive and violent activities," were arrested in Khammam district, a senior police officer said on Monday.
"Tellam Dadaiah alias Madhu and Karam Ungaiah were arrested when they were moving in Pedda Bandirevu forest area of Dummagudem mandal under suspicious circumstances," Bhadrachalam ASP N Prakash Reddy told.
The duo were apprehended by a special team attached to Charla and Dummagudem police stations and the personnel of CRPF 141 Battalion when they were returning after conducting combing operations last evening, he said.
