NALGONDA: A special party police team and Maoists exchanged fire at Mangal thanda in Chandampet mandal on Wednesday evening. No casualty was reported from either side.

According to the Superintendent of Police, M.M. Bhagwat, four naxals opened fire from a hillock on seeing the approaching police party consisting of 14 members. The police immediately retaliated forcing the naxals to flee from the scene.

``Further search is going on in and around the Krishnapatte area,'' Mr. Bhagwat said. While one naxal was clad in olive green, others were in civil dress. The spot is located five kilometres north from Kambalapally
