It is thought that Naxal leader Vikram Gowda was accompanying the group in the jungle when a jeep carrying ATF personnel arrived in the vicinity. The sound of the vehicle’s engine alerted the Naxals causing them to flee.

Then the ATF personnel surrounded the Naxals and an encounter ensured in which a Naxal was killed on the spot on Monday evening while others managed to escape. The deceased has been identified as Vasantha. ATF personnel Rajesh was admitted in a private hospital here following injuries.

It’s also significant that handbills were pasted in the town announcing that the state has announced a reward for informants. The pictures of Naxals and their personal details were also found in the handbills.
