Berhampur: A man with alleged
links with Maoists and wanted in connection with the murder of
a former sarapanch in Baragada area in Ganjam district was
arrested on Friday.

Sudarshan Mandal alias Shankarshan, suspected to have
links with Maoists, including top leader Sabyasachi Panda, was
allegedly involved in the murder of Dillip Swain, former
sarapanch of Balaramapur gram panchayat on June 22 last year
in association with the rebels, the police said.

"During interrogation Mandal confessed to the crime,"
Superintendent of Police (Ganjam) Rajesh Pandit said at
Chhatrapur.

Since he was linked with Maoists, police suspected he
might be involved in some other Maoist-related crimes in
Ganjam, Gajapati and Kandhamal districts.

"We are investigating his links with other Maoist
related crimes in these districts," police said.
Mandal disclosed some of the hideouts of ultras in
