The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) along with the Jharkhand Police in a joint operation, busted a Naxal ammunition dump in the forests of Lohardanga, Jharkhand.
“The massive haul included, 1010 ammunition of different caliber, 5100 detonators, Cordex wire-21,600 feet and explosives weighing around 200 kgs,” the CRPF statement said.
Security Forces are continuing offensive operations against the Naxals in Jharkhand and succeeding in recovering arms and ammunition.
A number of important Naxal cadres have also surrendered before the forces recently.
The Indian government had stepped-up action against the Naxal insurgents, especially after the brutal Sukma attack in which 25 CRPF personnel were killed in an ambush.
