Ranchi, Feb 5 (ANI): Jharkhand Police on Friday made a big headway in the investigation of brutal beheading of police officer Francis Indudwar with the arrest of six Naxals, including Gobardhan Munda who is suspected to be involved in the deed.

The arrested Naxals also include two women activists.

The Naxals were arrested from Surakocha village which falls under the Arki police station of Khunti District.

Speaking to ANI, Khunti District Superintendent of Police, Asit Vikrant Minj said: "The police have prepared a list of 50 to 60 Maoists and their supporters suspected to be involved or supported the killing of Francis Indudwar and the arrested Naxals names are also listed."

Police suspect that the arrested Naxals might have provided logistic support for Indudwar's killing.

"The inquiry of the arrested is going on and will give the details very soon," Minj added.

On September 30, 2009, a Special Branch Inspector Induwar was abducted and beheaded by Naxals.
