Maoists fire on security camp

Latehar (Jharkhand), Jan 27 (PTI) Maoists tonight fired at a make-shift camp of the security forces, triggering a gun battle at Barwadih in Latehar district, the police said here. The forces returned gun fire after rebels first shot at, Latehar Superintendent of Police Kranti Kumar told reporters. There was no report of any loss of life, he said, adding the two sides were exchanging fire intermittently. The encounter ensued during a special drive launched by the district police and CRPF in the stronghold areas of the Maoists rebels in Maoist-infested parts of the district, Kumar said. However, there was no report any casuality from the police camp so far. The security personnel were making all effort to cordon off the area to flush out the naxals. The incident was took place near the spot where 11 policemen had been killed in a landmine blast triggered by Maoists soon after they made an abortive attempt on Independent MP and former Jharkhand speaker, Inder Singh Namdhari near Lat village on December 3 last.
