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).
