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 midnight.

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.
