Raipur: Two young suspected Naxal sympathisers, including a school girl, were on Thursday arrested in Maoist-hit Bijapur district of Chhattisgarh, police said.
"The Maoist sympathisers were nabbed from Kaika village of the district during an anti-Naxal operation by district force," a senior official told PTI.
Those arrested duo were identified as Manju Avlam (18) and Aytu Avlam (21), the official added.
According to police, both have admitted that they were helping Dinesh, a member of Gangalur LOS (local operating squad) of Maoists for supplying commodities of regular use to Naxals, besides acting as messengers for him.
"A few letters of communication with Maoists, Naxal literature and a couple of sharp-edged weapons have been recovered from their possession," the official said.
Both were booked under Chhattisgarh Jan Suraksha Adhiniyam 2005 (Chhattisgarh Special Public Security Act) and the Arms Act.
Manju is a ninth grade student in a government school of Bahairmagdh village in the region and recently appeared in her final exams.
