Two Naxals were arrested by security forces in Dantewada district and a tiffin bomb planted by them was recovered, police said on Monday.
Baman Mandavi (27) and Hidma Podiyami (26), both jan-militia members, were nabbed from the forest near Nadenar village under Katekalyan police station area, around 70 kms from here, on Sunday evening, a local police official said.
Personnel of the District Reserve Guard (DRG) and the CRPF's 195th battalion were involved in the search operation, he added.
"Based on their interrogation, a tiffin bomb planted by them to harm security forces was recovered from the area along with a detonator and an electric wire," the official said.
The arrested duo have been associated with the banned CPI (Maoist) since the last several years, he said.
"Their job involves arranging ration for senior ultras and keeping an eye on the movement of security forces. The duo were also allegedly involved in planting improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and iron spikes to target security personnel," the official explained.
