According to reports reaching here, the exchange of fire between the police and the Maoists resumed on Saturday morning.

An SLR, .303 riffle, pistol, camera flash and a CD were recovered from the place where the bodies were found. Since an SLR was found, one of the dead could be secretary of the area committee of Galikonda as a weapon of such nature is given to area committee secretaries.
