7 Maoists, 1 policeman hurt in AP encounter

At least seven Maoists and a Greyhound constable sustained injuries in an exchange of fire at the border area of Andhra Pradesh and Chhattisgarh in Khammam district, the police said on Sunday.

A team of Greyhound personnel, an elite anti-naxal force, was combing the forest area between Cherla and Kitaram villages when some Maoists attacked them on Saturday night, a senior police official said. In retaliation, the police personnel opened fire at the Maoists, who escaped in the thick forest area, he said. While preliminary reports suggest that seven Maoists sustained injuries, a police personnel was also injured in the encounter, the police official added. After being given first aid at Cherla village, the policeman was admitted to a government hospital.
