Chaibasa: A Maoist training
camp was on Saturday smashed in West Singhbhum district after a
fierce encounter between the police and ultra-left cadre.

The district police force jointly with para-
military force jawans were on regular combing operation
in naxal-affected areas when the encounter took place at
Nawagaon in West Singhbhum bordering Orissa, police said.

DIG (Kolhan) Manoj Mishra told a news agency that a training
camp of the CPI(Maoists) was smashed following the encounter.

No report of any casuality was reported in the
encounter that lasted for about an hour.

Mishra said large-scale recovery of fire-arms was made
during the operation, details of which were awaited.

The encounter came just ahead of the 72-hour proposed
Jharkhand bandh called by the ultra outfit from tomorrow

The Maoists have called the bandh in protest against
the government`s proposed anti-naxal `Green Hunt" operation to
be launched soon in the state.
