Two Maoists were killed in Bihar’s Jamui district after an intense encounter with CRPF’s Cobra battalion, SSB and STF on Wednesday morning.
The team was headed by district SP Sushil Kumar. The encounter took place in the jungle of Ghoghi Korasi area under ultra dominated Piribazar police station.
“We learnt that the attack wing of hardcore Maoists Baleshwar Koda, and Arjun Koda are present in the jungles of Ghoghi Korasi village. Accordingly, a joint team of Cobra squad, SSB and STF initiated combing operation,” Kumar said.
“Maoists realized that they might be cornered by the sleuths, and started firing at us. In retaliation, we also fired at them. After an intense battle of over an hour, firing was stopped from the ultra’s side. We believed that they fled from the spot,” he said.
“We launched a search operation in the area and soon found two dead bodies of Maoists. They are identified as Jagdish Koda and Virendra Koda. We have also recovered an SLR rifle and a sophisticated pistol and several rounds of live cartridges,” the SP said.
