    Two Maoists were killed in a fight with the police in the Cherla mandal district on Sunday. The fight happened during police operations in the Puttapadu forest on the Telangana-Chhattisgarh borders. The police found one SLR and other materials at the scene. They have taken the bodies to the Government area hospital Bhadrachalam for autopsy. One body has been identified as Cherla LOS Commander Rajesh alias Madakam Yerraiah, but the other is yet to be identified.

    The CPI (Maoist) Bhadradri-Kothagudem Alluri Seetha Ramaraju division committee secretary Azad condemned the encounter, claiming it was a fake encounter by the police. The exchange of fire came after Telangana Police chief Anjani Kumar warned officers against complacency in tackling Maoists, especially in areas bordering neighbouring states where Maoist activity is present.
