The National Investigation Agency (NIA) stated on Monday that it had apprehended a wanted female Naxal cadre in the Bijapur encounter case in Chhattisgarh, which resulted in the deaths of 22 police officers and injuries to more than 30 others in 2021.
Madkam Ungi alias Kamla was apprehended on Sunday in the Bijapur district’s Bhopalpatanam area in connection with an attack by armed members of the CPI (Maoist) on a police party and security force personnel near Tekalgudiyam hamlet. The case was initially registered by Tarrem Police Station in the Bijapur district in June 2021, but it was then re-registered by the NIA on June 5, 2021.
During investigations, the agency said, an input was received that a wanted “female Maoist was hiding in the Bhopalpatanam area of Bijapur district”.
“Immediately, an NIA team from Raipur was mobilized and deployed on the operation in which the wanted female Maoist was successfully apprehended,” said the anti-terror agency.
The apprehended female Naxal was produced before the NIA Special Court in Jagdalpur on Sunday.
