Two people, including 27-year-old women, on Friday, have been arrested from West Bengal’s Maoist-prone Purulia district.

Two accused named Kabita Ghouri and Panchanan Mahato were detained as they had illegal possession of weapons (arms) and ammunition near Hanumata Bridge on Tata-Purulia Main Road in Balarampur in Purulia district.

“On the basis of credible source information we arrested the two accused and a case has been initiated under section 25 (1)(a)/27 Arms Act 1959,” police said.

Kabita Ghouri was also involved in Balarampur in 2011 and 2012 under IPC and Arms Act.
