In the Sukma area of Chhattisgarh, one Naxalite was slain in a confrontation with security personnel on Monday.

“A naxalite was neutralised in a confrontation with Sukma security personnel. The search is still ongoing, but his body and weapons have been found,” Sukma Superintendent of Police (SP) Kiran Chavan told ANI.

The Kistaram Police Station is in charge of the forest where the incident happened, which is close to Tetemadgu village.

The action featured soldiers from COBRA (COmmando Battalion for Resolute Action) battalions 208 and 204 as well as the District Reserve Guard (DRG).

An anti-Naxal operation was carried out in Chattisgrah’s Narayanpur for 48 hours earlier on March 30. Three interactions occurred throughout the operation, according to an official.

Following the confrontation, authorities reported that security forces removed 5 kg of IED from the scene, along with a sizable quantity of Naxalite material. According to the official, on March 29, 2024, while the police party was conducting a search of the jungle hills of Binagunda-Koronar, they came under fire three times between roughly 8:00 am and 12:00 pm from Maoists who had set up an ambush with the intention of killing people and stealing firearms. In self-defense, the security troops also struck back. The conversation went on for around four hours.
