Police confirmed that for the last three days, security forces were conducting combing operations over a tip-off about Naxals from other areas gathering in the area.

The Maoists opened fire against the C-60 commandos, prompting the latter to retaliate with gusto.

Those killed also include two divisional committee (DVC) commanders identified as Sainath Bulesh Madiattram (34), and Vijendran Ranake, alias Srinyu. On April 3, Sunil Kulmethe, also a member of south Gadchiroli division, was killed in an encounter near Sironcha Rahul.
