Kanker (Chhattisgarh), Sep 10 (ANI): Chhattisgarh Police on Friday arrested ten Maoists, who were involved in the August 29 encounter in Bihar's Lakhisarai District.

"We are looking at the case according to the government procedure. All those who have helped the Maoists, and even we have some names, we will take action against all of them," said Dheeraj Markaam, Station House Officer (SHO) of Durgkadul Police Station.

One of the nabbed Maoists said that they lost around 12-13 cadres in the Lakhisarai gun battle.

"I cannot say, but at least 12-13 have died," said Sarau Ram, one of the arrested Maoists.

The four policemen were taken hostage on August 29 during an encounter with the Naxals in Lakhisarai.

The Naxals killed one of the policemen, Hawaldar Lukas Tete, after the first deadline ended.

In a note that they left on his body, the Naxals threatened to do away with the three remaining hostages if eight of their comrades are not released from jail. (ANI)
