Three Maoists, including two females, were killed in an encounter with security forces in Maharashtra's Gadchiroli district on Monday. Three automatic weapons—an AK47, a carbine, and an INSAS rifle along with Naxalite literature and paraphernalia, were recovered by the security forces, Superintendent of Police Neelotpal said.

According to the officials, they received an intel that members of the Perimili Dalam (a Maoist group) were camping in a forest near Katrangatta village in Bhamragad taluka, with the intention of carrying out subversive activities during their ongoing Tactical Counter Offensive Campaign (TCOC) period.

In response, two units of C60 led by the Gadchiroli police were immediately launched for area search. During the search operation, Maoists fired at them indiscriminately, to which the C-60 team retaliated strongly.

Following the ceasefire, the bodies of one male and two female Maoists were found at the spot.

One of the deceased has been identified as Divisional Committee Member (DVCM) Vasu Samar Korcha of the Perimili Dalam. He was involved in 1 murder, 5 blasts, and 1 robbery, totaling 7 serious crimes. The government had announced a reward of Rs. 16 lakh on him.

The other female members have been identified as Reshma Madkam, 25 years old, a resident of the Bastar area. She was involved in 1 murder, 5 blasts, totaling 6 serious crimes, with a government reward of Rs. 4 lakh announced on her.

The third female member identified is Kamala Madavi, 24 years old, a resident of South Bastar area and a member of the Perimili Dalam. She was involved in 2 murders, 5 blasts, totaling 7 serious crimes, with a government reward of Rs. 2 lakh announced on her.

The C-60 team recovered an AK-47 rifle, a carbine, an INSAS rifle, Naxal literature, and other items from the location.

The anti-Maoist operation was still underway in the area, the police said.

Maoists undertake the Tactical Counter Offensive Campaign (TCOC) from March-June to strengthen their cadres and launch major attacks on security forces as the forests are devoid of green cover, thereby increasing visibility, said security officials.
