Pune: Banned CPI-M Maoists triggered a landmine blast in a forest area on the Maharashtra-Chhattisgarh border in the wee hours on Thursday, killing at least three police commandoes.

According to the Gadchiroli District Collector, the anti-Naxal commando force jawans were conducting a combing operation in the Bada Zariya forest area in Dhanora taluka following a tip-off when the Naxals triggered a landmine blast.

The jawans, who were killed, belonged to the C-60 Commando Force. There was also a heavy exchange of fire after the blast, locals said.

Senior police officials were rushed to the spot and the bodies are being brought to Gadchiroli, police said.

This is a major attack by Maoists in the last few months after police eliminated more than 23 ultras in different operations this year.

The attack could be part of a larger ambush plan of Naxals to target the government machinery, sources said.
