Hardcore rebel nabbed in Sambalpur
Police said that Aarta was earlier nabbed in 2005 for his indulgence in Maoist activities and he was released on bail in 2009. He was residing at his native Barley village under Jujumara police station. Aarta after remaining silent for some months, again took active participation in the red organisation following the recent spurt in Maoist activities in Sambalpur district.
The superintendent of police, Sambalpur, Nikhil Kanodia said that the left wing ultras resorted to large scale arson in the ARSS camp since the supervisor didi not turn up to surrender the booty demanded by the Naxals. He said that Aaarta too was involved in the attack on a police party that took place just the next day after the ARSS incident.
