The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has declared a reward of 7 lakh rupees for the arrest of Naxal leader Madvi Hidma. Hidma belongs to the People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army (PLGA) of the Maoists. This group was also involved in the ambush that took place earlier this month at the Sukma-Bijapur border in Chhattisgarh in which 22 security personnel were martyred.
The reward has been announced in a 2019 case pertaining to the killing of Chhattisgarh legislator Bhima Mandavi. NIA had last year filed a charge sheet against Madvi Hidma in the Bhima Mandavi Murder case.
