Bhopal, Aug 26 (UNI) A female naxal carrying a reward of Rs 20,000 was arrested today in a forest adjoining Balaghat district's Mate village, Police Headquarters sources said.
Nirmala Gond alias Samla alias Saguna Gond, an active member of the Malajkhand Dalam, joined the Dalam about ten years back along with her sister Kamla. Nirmala also served in the Paraswada Dalam and was then sent to Maharashtra's Gadchiroli where she was part of the Korchi Dalam. She was married to rebel Shyamlal in Gadchiroli.
The couple later became active in the Malajkhand Dalam in Balaghat.
A tip-off was received on Saturday about Nirmala's presence in Borban village for propaganda. She slipped through the cordon but was ultimately caught. Nirmala was involved in several encounters with police in Balaghat.
