Nawada: An active member of proscribed CPI (Maoist) Jamuna Paswan, wanted in connection with the killing of a police inspector, has been arrested from Telhatta Dhamani village under Kauakol police station in Naxalite-affected Nawada district of Bihar, police said on Sunday.

Paswan, who was nabbed late last night, was evading arrest ever since he was made a prime accused in the killing of police inspector Kapildeo Praasad at Mahuliatand village under Khaira police station in the district in 2003.

The inspector was waylaid by naxalites who slit his throat while he was on his way to investigate a case related to the killing of the mukhiya (headman) of Darupawel panchayat for not paying extortion money to the outfit.
