NAWADA: Four Maoists were on Wednesday killed in a fierce gun-battle with the security forces of CoBRA 205 battalion in Bihar’s Nawada.

The encounter took place in the forest area of village Thamkola.

Three of the four Maoists killed have been identified as Anil Yadav, Rajesh Ravidas and Chandan Nepali, all belonging to maoist Pradyuman Sharma’s (State Committee Member) group.

While Yadav was a Zonal Committee Member, Ravidas was a Sub-Zonal Committee Member and Nepali was an armed cadre of Magadh Zone.
