In continuation of the stepped-up drive against the courier network of Maoists, the Charla police on Tuesday arrested four “Maoist couriers” from Chhattisgarh and seized medicines worth ₹10,000 at Lenin Colony on the outskirts of Charla.

A joint squad of the local police and the CRPF men nabbed four “Maoist couriers” while they were proceeding towards Chhattisgarh to deliver a consignment of medicines to the rebels based in Chhattisgarh's Bastar division on Tuesday morning.

The police identified the arrested as Muski Bheema, 36, Y Iithu, 19, Muski Unga, 20, and M Bichem, 28, of Kondapalli village in Bijapur district of Chhattisgarh.

The two boxes that were seized from the arrested persons contained various medicines, 28 saline bottles, more than 200 syringes and surgical spirit, sources said.

The seizure followed intensified vigil against the movement of Maoist couriers along the inter-State border with Chhattisgarh, police said.

The district police had on Sunday arrested three “Maoist sympathisers” at two places in Bhadrachalam division and seized explosive materials meant to be handed over to the ultras.
