Five security personnel were today injured during an encounter with the Left-wing guerrillas in Kumandih Jungle of Latehar district.

"One jawan of the CoBRA and four personnel of the Jharkhand Jaguar were injured in the encounter with the Maoists," SP Michael S Raj said.

All the injured were taken to a hospital in Ranchi, about 100km from here, he said.

Security forces launched the anti-Maoist operation from Wednesday and the Maoists exploded landmines and opened fire around 10am today, resulting in the encounter, he said.

Police, however, could confirm the name of the injured CoBRA jawan Pradeep Kumar.
