Panigrahi said Rs 3,39,500 in cash, CPI (Maoist) literature
and leaflets were seized from Bhabagrahi who played a key
role in collection of levy from businessmen and contractors.

of funds by the red rebels, he said.
Anita had joined CPI (Maoists) in 2005 and taught
Maoist philosophy and doctrine in camps, he said. She had been
trained in handling of sophisticated weapons.
Married to a hardcore Maoist Ajay in 2006, she was

Anita was also allegedly involved in the killing of a
man at village Telikusum of nearby Deogarh district in June,
