SFs kill two Maoists in Bihar

Security Forces (SFs) killed two suspected Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist) cadres in an encounter in the Barmasia forest area under Barhat Police Station in Lakhisarai District on June 18, reports The Telegraph. A joint team of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF)'s specialised unit for jungle warfare CoBRA (Commando Battalion for Resolute Action), the State Police's Special Task Force (STF) and the District Armed Police conducted the operation based on a tip-off of Maoist movement in the forest under Barhat Police Station in Lakhisarai District. The SFs were combing the area when, the troops spotted some heavily armed Maoists between Barmuha and Barmasia villages and two Maoists were killed in the encounter that followed. Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) (operations), Pawan Kumar, said some other of the rebels also suffered bullet injuries in the five-hour-long operation but managed to escape. Blood stains were found on the trail the Maoists fled. Two bodies were recovered and two .303 bore assault rifles were seized from the site. The identity of the killed rebels is yet to be ascertained, but they were suspected to be Maoist cadres from Chhattisgarh. "Two rifles, a magazine and liquor pouches were recovered from the spot where the Maoists had gathered," said Jamui ASP, D.N. Pandey.
