20-yr-old Naxal arrested

SAMBALPUR: A Naxalite Sayun Bilung (20), known as Sambit in Maoist circle, was nabbed from Lankeswari village during a joint raid by the CRPF and Sambalpur police in the wee hours today.

Sayun was taken in as a Sleeper Cell member, involved in providing food and shelter, by the ultras in 2006 in which he participated with enthusiasm. Later, he underwent training in Saranda forest in neighbouring Jharkhand and was also instrumental in shifting injured Shatrughan alias Sonu to Cuttack. Sonu was hit by a bullet in an encounter with the police in Badrama forest in January this year.

Nursing a grudge against his parents for being abandoned by them, he revealed to police about being denied of parental love and how the Naxals were sympathetic towards him after being declared ‘illegitimate child’ by his villagers.
