Ranchi: At least three Maoists were today killed in an encounter with the security personnel in Latehar district`s Katia forests, a senior CRPF official said.

"At least three naxalites were killed in the Katia forests and the encounter is still going on," Inspector General of Police (CRPF) M V Rao told a news agency.

He said details would be available only after the gunfight will be over.

The location of the encounter was near the Maoist-dominated spot where the ultras had killed 13, including 10 security men, in January this year.
