Raipur: An encounter took place between the Border Security Force (BSF) personnel and Maoists in Chhattisgarh’s Pankhajur area on Thursday.

The latest gunbattle comes weeks after 25 CRPF jawans were killed in the attack in Sukma on April 24 on a road-opening party moving towards Chintagufa area.

Later, the CRPF arrested at least nine people from Chintalnar and Chintagufa areas of Chhattisgarh, allegedly involved in the deadly attack on CRPF personnel.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday called for choking financial resources of left-wing extremist groups as he outlined a new operational strategy ‘SAMADHAN’, which calls for aggression in thinking, strategy, operations as well as road construction to deal with the Maoist threat.
