Ranchi, Nov 23: Six Maoists were killed in a gunfight with security forces in Jharkhand on Wednesday, police said. “Six Maoist guerrillas were killed in a gun battle with security forces in Lather district under Chhipadohar police station,” Inspector General of Police (operation) and spokesperson M.S. Bhatia said. All six bodies along with weapons were recovered. A search operation was, however, still on in the area, Bhatia said. Police believed that some Maoists were injured in the gun battle so the combing operation was undertaken. “This is a big success for the police. Police have succeeded in neutralising Maoists in a tough terrain,” said Bhatia. All six killed belonged to the banned Maoist group, Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist). Maoist Guerrillas are active in 18 of the 24 districts of the state. (IANS)
