Security forces were on Friday combing the Burisole forest in West Midnapore district to locate Maoist woman leader Suchitra Mahato who fled after the encounter with joint forces in which top Maoist leader Kishenji was killed.

A purse, believed to be that of Suchitra, the wife of slain ultra leader Sasadhar Mahato, who had been living with Kishenji, was found outside the forest leading to the fresh search, a CRPF commandant said.

Over 1,100 personnel of the joint forces comprising 167 and 184 battalions of CRPF, CISF, are carrying out the combing operations, sources said.
