A CPI (Maoist) camp was on Sunday destroyed at Bandgaon in West Singhbhum of Jharkhand, apparently days after top Maoist leaders gathered there, a top CRPF official said.
"The items the security forces recovered from the camp indicate that top Maoists had gathered there to plan some strategy," CRPF Deputy Inspector General of Police, Alok Raj said.
Among the recovered materials were dry fish, rice and jaggery which also points that the Maoist leaders belong to either Andhra Pradesh or West Bengal...a computer table also indicates presence of top Maoist leaders, he said.
About twenty clamour mines were found in the camp and had been destroyed, he added.
A total of five securitymen were injured on Saturday during the fierce encounter with the Maoists near the same place. While three were admitted to a hospital here, two were airlifted today, he said.
The condition of one of them was stated to be very critical.
"We have stepped up the anti-naxal operations, more forces will be deployed," he said.
