Three Maoists gunned down in encounter with police
Police on Sunday gunned down three Maoists, including a woman commander, in a gun battle with the ultras in insurgency-hit Rajnandgaon district of Chhattisgarh.
The encounter took place around 2 pm in a forested hill near Pendori village under Aundhi police station limits when a team of district force was carrying out a search operation in the region, according to Rajnandgaon Superintendent of Police (SP) Prashant Agrawal.
Based on specific inputs, security personnel had launched the operation in the interiors of Aundhi, he said.
When the patrol team was advancing through the forests of Pendori, it came under heavy fire from a group of ultras leading to a fierce gun-battle, Agrawal said.
On finding security personnel were zeroing in on them, the ultras fled from the spot, he added.
“During the search, bodies of three Maoists, including a woman, clad in ‘uniform’ besides one SLR rifle, one Insas rifle and one 303 rifle were recovered from the spot,” the SP said.
The woman has been identified as Sameela, a commander rank cadre who was active in Aundhi Area Committee of Maoists, said.
The identity of two others was yet to be ascertained, the SP said adding details are awaited.
