Maoist violence has destroyed Purulia. 

A Heckler & Koch G3 Rifle used by NATO and Pakistan army was recovered from Maoists by the Chhattisgarh police on Friday (14 June) following an intense gunfight with the left-wing terrorists in which as many as four ultras died, India Today has reported.

The encounter broke out at the Tadoki Police Station limit in Murnar forest range, following which arms and ammunition like two SLRs, one 303 rifle and the sophisticated G3 rifle was recovered.

“We have recorded G3 rifle used by the Pakistan army and this is second such recovery in the region”, D G Naxal Operation DM Awasthi briefed the media persons.


The total number of Maoists involved in the operations is said to have been 11 and two dead bodies have already been recovered.
