2 cops, 4 naxals hurt in encounter

Posted by Indian Vanguard on June 4, 2007

CHANDRAPUR: A naxal attack on Border Road Organisation’s base camp Komaka-Gattajamiya road in Ettapalli tehsil of Gadchiroli district was repelled by the State Reserve Police Force (SRPF) on Saturday evening.

Around 70 rebels attacked the base. As the security personnel intercepted them, four naxalites are said to be injured in the cross fire. Two cops have been wounded too. The naxals reportedly hurled some explosive devices at the base camp, which appeared to be detonators.

A 1500 feet long, six-coloured wire has also been discovered from the spot, say police sources.

The injured policemen, Chandrakant Chaurate and Vishweshwar Pishe, have been admitted in a hospital at Gadchiroli and are likely to be shifted to Nagpur. Though not confirmed, but blood stains on the spot indicate that least four naxalites must have sustained injuries, said sources.

BRO which is building roads and bridges in the naxal hit region, have always been a target of attacks. A year ago, one of its engineers was brutally killed by the naxalite. There have been instances of workers being beaten up and threatened to spot work.
