Three Maoists, involved in many attacks, were arrested on Thursday in separate anti-Naxal operations in Orissa's Malkangiri and Mayurbhanj districts, police said.

32-year-old Adma Madkami was arrested during a joint combing operation by BSF, CRPF and Orissa's elite anti-Naxal Special Operation Group at Teakguda forest in Kalimela area of Malkangiri, SP Anirudh Singh said.

Madkami, an active Maoist member who joined the outfit 10 years ago, had undergone intensive training in guerrilla warfare, arms handling and landmine blast, the SP said.

He was involved in many offences including a major attack on a police team in 2003 and booth-capturing and violence during the last general elections in the state, Singh said.

Two other Maoists -- Rupai Tudu (28) and Ruhia Hembram (21) -- were arrested from Suliapada area at Mayurbhanj district, Mayurbhanj SP Dayal Gangwar said.

The duo was involved in several crimes including the killing of a timber merchant in Suliapada area on April 11, he said.
