Medininagar (Jharkhand): A self-styled Maoist sub-zonal commander, wanted in connection with the abduction of Latehar Development Commissioner and two engineers, was on Tuesday arrested along with another person in Palamau district.
Following a tip-off that the Maoist ultra, Satendra Paswan, had taken shelter at the residence of one Sahendra Yadav at Polpol village of the district, a team of CRPF and district police surrounded the house and captured him, Additional Superintendent of Police Ronald J Hansda said.
A loaded country-made pistol was seized from him.
"Paswan was wanted in the abduction case of Latehar district development commissioner and two engineers in March last year. They were let off after three days of captivity," the ASP said.
