At least three Maoists were on Monday killed in an encounter with the security personnel in Latehar district’s Katia forests, a senor 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 PTI.

He said details would be available only after the gun-fight was over and a clear picture emerged.
