Chhattisgarh police on Monday killed two Naxalities in an encounter and in a separate incident an outlaw committed suicide by consuming poison.

"Two Naxalities including their commander Jairam were killed in an encounter near Chinari village in Narayanpur district," Additional Director General of Police (Naxals) Pawan Dev said.

The duo were killed when police retaliated firing by the Naxalities, Dev said adding pipebombs, weapons, and detonators

were recovered from them.

In a separate incident, Dev said a Naxal commander allegedly committed suicide by consuming poison in Balrampur police district.

The body of the deceased, Chhattan Singh, was recovered from Chalgali village, bordering Jharkhand.

According to the police, some unresolved issues between Naxalities in Chhattisgarh and Orissa may be the reason behind the outlaw's suicide.
