Three Maoists killed in Chhattisgarh

Three Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist) cadres, including two women were killed in an encounter with the Security Forces (SFs) at Aundhi in Rajnandgaon District on June 18, reports New Indian Express. The encounter took place at remote forested hilly terrain of Pendauri about 150 kilometres west of Raipur. “We had definite inputs about the presence of Maoists in the area. The district police team led by the Aundhi police station in-charge Ashwin Rathore began search operation around noon when the rebels opened an attack on the troopers, resulting in an encounter,” the Rajnandgaon Superintendent of Police (SP), Prashant Agrawal said. We have recovered bodies of three Maoists and the forces have safely returned, he added. Three weapons- one Self Loading Rifle (SLR), one INSAS (Indian Small Arms System) assault rifle and a 303 rifle were recovered from the encounter site. One of the women killed was Sameela Potai, a local area committee ‘secretary’ who was active in the region for over a decade and carried an award of INR 800,000 and another Rammo, an LOS (Local Organisational Squad) member with a reward of INR 100,000. The identity of the third person is yet to be ascertained.

Meanwhile, Maoists set on fire a tractor engaged in road maintenance work in Dantewada District on June 18, reports Business Standard. No one was injured in the incident, which took place near Malewahi village under Barsoor Police Station limits where maintenance work of a road was underway, a local Police official said. As per the information, around a dozen Maoists stormed the maintenance site and threatened the workers before setting the tractor ablaze, he said, adding, the Maoists then fled into the forest.
