Two women Naxals killed in Madhya Pradesh in separate encounters by police

In a forest area of Madhya Pradesh’s Balaghat district bordering Chhattisgarh and Maharashtra two women Naxals were killed in separate encounters with police, an official said.

On Saturday, Superintendent of Police Abhishek Tiwari told reporters that the Naxals were killed around 11 pm and 7 am respectively on Friday.


“The two slain Maoists are yet to be identified officially. However, some people who were earlier associated with the rebels claimed on the basis of their pictures that one of them was from Gadchiroli in Maharashtra and another one from Bastar in Chhattisgarh,” he said.

The encounters took place under Kirnapur police station area, police reported.

Superintendent Abhishek Tiwari said the police have received inputs that the Maoist leadership was pushing the rebels from Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh to Balaghat and Mandla in MP in order to further their plans in Maharashtra.
