Bhubaneswar: A woman claiming to be the
wife of a most wanted top ranking Maoist leader was arrested
and several documents were seized from her here today, police
said.

Acting on a tip-off that the general secretary of Orissa
unit of CPI(Maoist) was hiding at the house at Balianata in
the outskirts of the city, police and anti-naxal Special
Operation Group (SOG) conducted a joint raid and arrested the
woman, identified as Saswati alias Mili.


A large number of documents, leaflets, Maoist literature
and a laptop were seized from the woman, who was whisked away
to an undisclosed place immediately after her arrest for
interrogation.


Vital information on Maoist activities in Orissa and
neighbouring states was expected to be got from her, the
police said.
