After an eight hour long gun battle which ended on Wednesday, Apr 15 the BSF jawans had shot dead the 11 naxals. Few of the jawans were injured in the process.
Naxals raided the camp with about 70 jawans at mid night firing rocket launchers, which was retaliated with gunfire by the jawans.
Due to the increasing naxal activity in the area the Bihar Government has requested for Air Force intervention.
