Mar 29, 2021 14:47 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Five Naxals, including two women, were killed in an encounter with police in Maharashtra's Gadchiroli on Monday morning.

Reports said the search and combing operation began on Saturday during which the Naxals and police exchanged fire after which the ultras fled the area. 

Three pressure cooker bombs were among the items recovered by the police during searches.

Nearly 40 hours later, the security forces ran into a group of 25 Naxals at around 7.30 am on Monday and five of them died in fire exchange.
