10 Maoists were killed in Chattisgarh

Raipur: At least 10 Maoists were killed in a major encounter that broke out in Chhattisgarh’s Bijapur district on Thursday. A senior police official said that eleven weapons were recovered and searches are still underway.

The encounter took place around 11am at the bank of the Indravati river in Abhujhmaad, about 25 kilometres from Bhairamgarh town. The river Indravati acts as a natural boundary for Abhujhmaad.

On Saturday, a woman was killed and another injured, allegedly in crossfire during an encounter between CRPF and Maoists in Godelguda village in Chhattisgarh’s Sukma district.

However, local villagers Wednesday alleged that the women were victims of a “fake encounter”. Police too admitted that the two women, Podiyam Sukka and Kalmi Dewe, were not Maoists, but maintained that they were caught in the crossfire. Sukka died of injuries at a CRPF field hospital in Dornapal, while Dewe has a bullet injury on her thigh.
