The Special Cell of Delhi Police are trailing the bank account of the three alleged naxalites who were arrested on Monday to find out the source of money, which funded the expensive medical treatment of one of them at a south Delhi hospital.

The main accused Yogendra Singh Bhokta (26) was undergoing treatment at a south Delhi hospital for almost two years and was footing the bills that ran into lakhs of rupees.

“Bhokta was getting all the money for treatment from Jharkhand. As he was the zonal commander of the outfit he used to plan all the operation sitting here in Delhi. He was constantly in touch with his counterparts,” said a senior police officer.

Bhokta had injured his thigh after a shootout with a rival naxalite group in 2007.
