Top NPA leader with P7.8M
bounty arrested in Iloilo
BY GILBERT BAYORAN
The arrested top rebel leader of Panay, Ma. Concepcion Araneta-Bocala, and elusive Negros rebel leader Frank Fernandez, a former priest, have one thing in common. Both have P7.8 million out as reward each, for their captivity, the military said.
Bocala, who is the secretary of the Komiteng Rehional-Panay (KR-P) of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People's Army, was apprehended Saturday by combined teams of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group and military intelligence operatives, by virtue of an arrest warrant for the crime of murder, in Molo, Iloilo.
The arresting officers recovered a .45 caliber pistol, a 22 caliber handgun, a hand grenade, and subversive documents from Bocala, who has the aliases of Concha, Etang, Meryl and Martha. She is now locked up in jail.
