KANKER (Chhattisgarh): At least 10 Maoists, including three women members, have been killed in an encounter with security forces in Chhattisgarh’s Narayanpur Narayanpur-Kanker Border on Tuesday, officials said.

According to the police, a joint party of the District Reserve Guard (DRG) and the Special Task Force (STF) jawans had left for a Maoist operation in Abujmarh of the Narayanpur and Kanker border area on Monday. The encounter between Maoists and a joint security team of the DRG and the STF broke out in a forest at around 6 am today.

“During the operation, an encounter took place between the police party and Maoists in the forest between the village Tekmeta and Kakur at 6 am on April 30.
