Dantewada District, August 12, 2022: An Area Committee cadre of the CPI (Maoist) was killed in a gun battle with a squad of the District Reserve Guard (DRG) on Friday in Chhattisgarh’s Dantewada district.
The firefight took place around 4 pm between the Maoists and the DRG squad in a forest near Etapal village, Dantewada Superintendent of Police Siddharth Tiwari said.
The Maoists targeted the security personnel who were on a search operation in a forested patch, prompting the DRG members to retaliate, the DSP said.
After the Maoists fled into the forest, a search of the area led to the body of Rakesh alias Madvi Kosa, a cadre of the Katekalyan Area Committee of the Maoist party.
As many as 20 cases were registered against Kosa, DSP Tiwari said.
