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.
