7 Maoists killed in encounter in Maharashtra

Seven Maoists, including five women, were gunned down in an encounter with the police in Maharashtra's Gadchiroli district on Wednesday morning.

The skirmish took place around 7 am at a forest in Kalled village, when a squad of C-60 commandos (anti-Maoist unit) was out on an operation, a senior police officer said.

The patrol team was cordoning-off the forest patch near Kalled, which borders Chhattisgarh, when the exchange of fire took place.

"Seven Maoists, including five women, were killed in the encounter while some weapons were also recovered from the spot," the officer said.

The bodies of Maoists are being retrieved from the forest. A search operation has been launched in the area.
