"The encounter took place in Bakoria village, about 140 km from Ranchi. All the bodies have been recovered," Superintendent of Police Mayur Patel said.
Additional DGP (Operation) SN Pradhan said that the encounter took place around 1 am.
Getting intelligence inputs that the Maoists were moving in the district, the CoBRA battalion and the district police rushed to the spot.
On seeing the personnel, the Maoists got down from the vehicle and started firing on them, Pradhan said.
In the retaliatory action, 12 rebels were gunned down, he added.
The Maoists were moving in two vehicles. While one vehicle sped away, the naxalites from the other vehicle got down and opened fire on the police, Pradhan said.
It was the dasta (firing squad) of CPI (Maoist) 'zonal commander' RK alias doctor, the police officer said.
Eight weapons were recovered from the spot. This is the first major incident in Jharkhand after Maoists had ambushed a police vehicle in Dumka on April 20 last year when the police party were returning after completion of the third phase of Lok Sabha elections.
Eight persons, including six policemen, were killed by the Maoists in that incident.

Terrorism is not a solution to anything. These are started by few people, who want to have power. All the terrorists should be either killed or they should be made to surrender.

These are not humans but great terrorists what we do with terrorists should be done with them. the only solution is war cry in totality.

maoists are dangerous to the whole country & especially to the village people. They have done gretaes damage to them both physically/mentally. they have raped more women than of the whole of India. They have killed more people than our soldiers in wars. they should not be spared. let a war be declared on them & finish them totally. This is a war cry of an Indian who has suffered.

Nice work done by Jharkhand police. This is the way to teach Maoists a lesson.
good answer to their firing

The naxalites have to be made to understand that they are not the only ones carrying guns and other arms and that if they indulge in violence, they will be returned in much severe way.
