Raipur: A five kilogram tiffin bomb hidden beneath the soil on a road was recovered on Saturday in Chhattisgarh's insurgency-hit Dantewada district, police said.
Dantewada district police officials told PTI that the tiffin bomb was recovered from Faraspal village after a tip off, when a team of security personnel was patrolling the area.
The bomb was unearthed and defused, they said.
In another incident at Bijapur district, a joint team of CRPF and district police force recovered weapons and Naxal material after a faceoff with Maoists in Tarrem jungles, police said.
As soon as security men reached Tarrem, about 30-40 Naxals opened fire, following which the team too retaliated. However, there are no reports of causalities on both sides, police said.
After Naxals fled into the jungles, policemen recovered detonators, electronic wires, boosters, walkie-talkies and some Naxal uniforms from the spot.
Elsewhere in Bogla jungles in Bijapur, a group of Naxals attacked policemen on a combing operation in the area. After retaliatory fire, arms and weapons, including guns, besides, posters, Naxal literature, medicine packets and commodities for daily use were recovered from the area, they added.
