Six Naxals, including a woman cadre, were killed after night long encounter between the security forces and the Naxals near the Motera jungle in West Bengal.


Reportedly, a CRPF commando was also killed in the encounter.

The CRPF sources said, “Acting on a specific intelligence, a joint-team of the CRPF and special anti-Naxal force SAF went into the operation in the dense forests under Golatore police station last night.”

Maoists were unaware of the attack
As the Maoists had not anticipated this move, they were surprised by the attack by the security forces.

The encounter ended in the wee hours of today morning. Twelve weapons, including SLRs and INSAS rifles, were recovered from the spot.

As per the reports from the officials, one of the persons killed was Siddhu Soren.

Siddhu Soren was the top Naxal commander in the state. He was also the secretary of the Maoist based People’s Committee against Police Atrocities (PCPA).

Another encounter in Jharkhand
Besides an encounter in West Bengal, a 20-hour long gunfight also took place in Jharkhand between the Naxals and security forces, which resulted in the destruction of a Maoist camp.

The police officials had suspected the presence of Pahan, well-known as Veerappan of Karnataka, along with 45 other Maoists in Jaranburu hill in the area bordering Khuti and Seraikela districts.

Reportedly, the gun battle started on Sunday in areas bordering Khuti, Seraikela and Kharsawa districts and continued overnight.

Nearly, 900 security personnel including CRPF and STF were involved in the operation.
