New Delhi:

Eleven cops were injured in an intense gun-battle with maoists in forests of Chhattisgarh’s insurgency-hit Sukma district on Saturday, the cops stated. The encounter occurred at around 2: 30 pm near Korajguda hills in Chintagufa location when a joint team of security forces was out on an anti- maoists operation, a senior cops official stated.

Personnel of the cops’s District Reserve Guard (DRG), Unique Job Force and CoBRA (Task Force Battalion for Resolute Action) had actually introduced the operation from Chintagufa, Burkapal and Timelwada camps based upon details about existence of ultras near Elmagunda, he stated.

When the team was advancing through Korajguda hills, situated around 450 km from the state capital Raipur, shooting broke out in between the 2 sides, he stated.

“Eleven DRG personnel sustained injuries. They are being evacuated,” he stated, including that 2 of them were stated to be in vital condition.

“Based on the ground inputs, it is believed at least 4 to 5 maoists might have been killed and an equal number injured as security forces retaliated strongly,” he stated. Additional reports were waited for, the official added.
