Five naxals killed in Bihar

Five Naxals have been killed in an encounter with the elite commando unit of the CRPF after a fierce gunbattle in the jungles of Aurangabad district of the state.
Officials said the encounter began late evening in the Dibhara area of the left-wing extremism hit district after which five bodies of the Maoists, an AK series assault rifle, one carbine, a country-made gun and some other ammunition have been recovered from the spot.

"As darkness has set in the jungle area, the troops are taking time to sanitise the area and provide furher details of the encounter. The CoBRA team was out for operation based on some inputs about the movement of armed Maoist cadres in the area," they said.
