MUZAFFARPUR: The security forces today arrested eight Maoists following an encounter with them in Bihar's naxal-infested Muzaffarpur district, a police officer said.

Acting on a tip-off, the security forces comprising CRPF, STF and district police raided Suhasi village in search of scores of Maoists hiding there, Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Brijesh Rana said. The Maoists, however, tried to escape by firing 40 rounds on the security forces who returned the fire in which an unidentified Maoist sustained injuries, he said.

The security forces later arrested the injured Maoist and seven others, the ASP said, adding that two country-made rifles and two pressure cooker bombs were recovered from the spot.
