Five naxals have been killed and their bodies are with the forces.

"The encounter is still on", an unidentified official told PTI. Today's success in anti-maoist operations comes as a huge morale booster for security forces in the aftermath of last Saturday's Sukma naxal attack, where CRPF had lost 12 jawans. "Security personnel have recovered five bodies of Maoists belonging to Malangir Area Committee of Maoists from the spot while the area was still being searched till late evening", Dantewada SP Kamlochan Kashyap said.

Recovery of AK 47 and Insas assault rifles indicated that the slain Maoists may include commander ranking rebels, he added. The encounter is still underway in the Burdum area of the district.

At the end of the game players were on their knees, so exhausted were they from their exertions. Had they been more clinical in front of goal and not conceded a penalty, they could have won.

The encounter took place when a joint search party comprising district reserve force (DRG) and special task force (STF) was ambushed by armed guerrillas in Berrempara jungle leading to a fierce gun battle between them.

Earlier this week, two Naxals were gunned down by police in an encounter with the security forces in Narayanpur district. Dantewada police said that the team of DRG commandos had launched a combing operation in the interiors of the forests of Aranpur based on intelligence inputs.
