A hardcore Maoist was arrested and three landmines were recovered on Thursday from different areas of Jharkhand, where the five-phased assembly polls are currently underway, police said.

The Maoist, identified as Joseph, was arrested from a village in Gumla district during a combing operation by CRPF personnel, they said, adding he was an expert in making IEDs.

In a separate incident, security personnel recovered three powerful landmines from Bidir village of Latehar district, which were later defused.
