The district police and the CRPF were conducting a joint anti-Naxalite operation in the Kumargunda forest this afternoon, when Naxalites who were hiding in the forest, suddenly opened fire at the police.
The police retaliated, but the Naxalites fled due to growing pressure from the security forces.
On searching the spot, police found a country gun, a magazine and 12 live rounds of an AK-47 rifle, a detonator, a wirebundle and a flashlight.
The police have continued anti-Naxalite operations in the area at a time when Maoists have been observing `martyrs` week` since July 28.
