Chaibasa: Prompt action by para-military personnel forced the Maoists flee deep into Jharkhand's Saranda forests on Saturday, the police said here.

On a long range patrolling since the May 24 left-wing attack on the Congress convoy in neighbouring Chhatisgarh, the CRPF men quickly took positions after the Maoists opened fire on them near Baliba in West Singhbhum district.

After a brief gun fight the Maoists fled into the forests. Security has been tightened in the area.
