Chhattisgarh: Security forces thwart Naxal ambush near Jhori village; Maoists open fire, flee


Security forces thwarted ambush attempts by a group of Naxals in Chhattisgarh’s Jhori village on Monday and engaged in a brief firing with the militants. Narayanpur Superintendent of Police Mohit Garg said that security forces carried out an Area Search and Domination exercise near Jhori village based on inputs of suspected movement of a small team of Naxals in the area.

Sources had tipped off the police claiming that the Naxals planned to execute an attack before Independence Day, Garg said. When the security forces cordoned the area, they discovered that the Naxals had blocked the road using fallen trees and had also posted banners on them.

The forces found out that the Naxals had laid an ambush with multiple command IEDs in order to target security forces and civilians who would cross the road.  Read More
