Jhargram, May 04 (UNI) A noted Maoist ultra, operating in the Belpahari region of West Midnapore, was arrested from the Banspahari forest area.
West Midnapore SP R Rajshekharan said here today that acting on a tip-off, a police contingent surrounded the forest and arrested Mangal Mura (25) last night.
