A female Maoist was gunned down on Sunday morning in an encounter with police in Chhattisgarh’s Kawardha. It is to be noted that the encounter between police and Maoists broke out near Suratiya village, Kawardha.

Soon after the gun battle came to an end, police recovered a body of female Maoist cadre identified as Jugani. Along with the body, huge Maoists literature were seized. 

More details awaited. 

The encounter comes almost a week after a Maoist hideout was busted by security forces in Chhattisgarh’s Kabirdham district and a huge cache of explosives and bomb-making materials was seized. 

It is to be noted that the seizure was made from the forest of Dhumachhapar village under Taregaon police station limits. “Based on specific inputs that Maoists have concealed explosive materials in Dhumachhapar area, a police team launched an operation. We found three big plastic containers buried in the forest,” Kabirdham Superintendent of Police Lal Umed Singh told reporters. 

“The containers had sixty packets of firecracker bombs, five detonators, five bundles of electric wire, 13 pressure cookers, 5 kilograms of iron splinters and Maoist literature,” the SP had said. He further added that the firecracker bombs may have been used to make improvised explosive devices (IEDs).
