Three naxalites, including a woman, were gunned down in Orissa's Malkangiri district by security forces from neighbouring Andhra Pradesh, police said on Monday.

The naxalites were shot dead in an encounter near Kotpali village under Paparmatla police station area four days ago by jawans from Andhra Pradesh who were chasing the ultras, Superintendent of Police Satyabrata Bhoi said.

He said three rifles were recovered from the ultras who had been spotted during a combing operation by the security force in the neighbouring state.

Stating that information about the encounter was received late as the site was in a remote area, he said further details were being collected.
