Some days ago, it was reported that CoBRA special task force's commandos were being Heli-plunged into the forest of Bastar. "However, neither bodies nor weapons could be recovered during these operations", TOI quoted a senior officer of the Chhattisgarh police as saying.

"At least 15 Maoists were reportedly gunned down in these encounters during the operation".

The number of Maoist casualties was based on information provided by villagers on the borders of Sukma and Bijapur districts besides the ground troops, the official added.

Five of them were apprehended from Chintalnar police station limits, while the rest from Chintagufa police station area during joint search operations carried out by CoBRA and district police force, Jitendra Shukla, Sukmas Additional Superintendent of Police, had told PTI.

He also said that Maoists were dwindling down once hit by shots.

Sunderra said the first exchange of fire occurred on Sunday morning.

The missile flew 787 kilometres on a trajectory reaching an altitude of 2,111.5 kilometres, the North's KCNA news agency said. Disarmament Ambassador Wood said China was key given that 90 percent of North Korea's trade was with that country.

Two police personnel had sustained bullet injuries in the gunfight that took place in the morning whereas an STF jawan was killed in another face-off, he said.

In April, two policemen were killed following an encounter with Maoists in Jharkhand. "However, no body was recovered from the spot as amid heavy exchange of fire, other Maoists managed to drag them inside the forests", the DIG said.

These rebels were part of the Maoist group that attacked a contingent of CRPF personnel, belonging to 74th battalion of the paramilitary force, in Burkapal area of Sukma district.

In a related development, the CRPF and Chhattisgarh police claimed to have arrested eight Maoists who were allegedly involved in the April 24 ambush.

Just after taking charge, Bhatnagar had asked his officers to give him a briefing about the Maoist ambush.
