Police in Jharkhand's Palamu district on Wednesday arrested a Maoist for allegedly preparing to incite villagers to boycott the upcoming parliamentary elections, a senior officer said.

Palamu SP Reeshma Ramesan said the Maoist, identified as Pankaj Prajapati (32), was allegedly preparing to persuade people to boycott the general elections on the instructions of a hardcore Naxal named Rajendra Singh from Sorri village under Mali police station in Bihar's Aurangabad district.

Prajapati was arrested by a special police force from Banahi village under Pipra police station in Palamu district based on intelligence input, she added.

During a raid at his residence, banners urging people to boycott the polls were recovered by police.
