BHUBANESWAR: Security forces continued to make further inroads into Narayanpatna, bastion of Chasi Mulia Adivasi Sangha (CMAS), and in the process, arrested some key leaders of the outfit on Sunday.Leader of women’s wing of CMAS, Kumudini Behera, and legal advisor Sahadev Parida, were among the nine arrested by the security forces, who took control of the area where the tribal outfit enjoyed full authority till a few weeks back. So much so that CMAS had held a public meeting here highlighting its struggle against land grabbers in the block.With Sunday’s arrest, the total number of those rounded up has gone up to 12.

Police have booked some of its members on charges of murder, arson and rioting in the last few months. The arrest of Kumudini has come as a shot in the arm for the security forces as the women’s wing took the lead in the outfit’s offensive in the block. With military commander Wadeka Singana dead, the CMAS seems to be cornered as their leader Nachika Linga has gone into hiding.In fact, top leaders of a number of organisations sympathetic to CMAS are believed to have gone underground after the incident.

While security forces are aware that the outfit may retaliate, it has built up its strength by mobilising adequate numbers.During Sunday’s operation, a jeep of the Sangha was seized by the police.

Sources said search operation is still on in the villages.Ten persons, who had reportedly received bullet injuries in Saturday’s incident, are yet to be traced.Police suspect they are not seeking medical treatment fearing arrest. IE
