By Super Admin

Hazaribagh (Jharkhand), Sept 24 (ANI): Police recently arrested three Maoists cadres after a fierce gun battle in Jharkhand's Hazaribagh district.

The arrested Maoists owe their allegiance to the Tritiya Prastuti Committee (TPC), a breakaway faction of the Communist Party of India (Maoist), in Keredari forest areas of the district.

"Acting on a tip off, police raided the spot. But they had escaped into jungles. Then we again got information that they were present in Bengwari village. Acting on the same, police went there and that's where encounter took place. Three people have been arrested. Out of which, one is injured," said Pankaj Kamboj, Superintendent of Police.

Police said that about 150 rounds were fired after which rebels started giving up.

A few bullets, a lot of Maoists documents, some SIM cards and many bags were recovered from the spot.

Jharkhand is one of the worst hit by Maoists.

Equipped with automatic weapons, mines and explosives, the Maoists carry out attack and cripple economic activity.

Maoists have formally been labelled as a terrorist group by the Central Government. (ANI)
