Yet another encounter between security forces and Maoists resulted in a massive success of the former in Chhattisgarh. At least seven Maoists were killed in a gunfight in Chhattisgarh's Narayanpur district. 

Bodies of seven Maoists, including two women cadres, were found following a fierce gunfight with security forces in Kanker district. 

The confrontation unfolded in the jungles of Abujhmad, situated on the volatile Narayanpur-Kanker border, where the Directorate General of Reserve Police (DRG) and Special Task Force (STF) personnel exchanged gunfire with suspected Maoists on Tuesday morning. 

The operation comes days after 29 Maoists were killed in a fierce encounter with security forces. Among them were senior Maoist leaders Shankar Rao and Lalita Meravi, who carried a reward of ₹8 lakh on their heads.
