CRPF jawans retaliate after landmine blasts

KOLKATA: Suspected Maoists triggered three simultaneous landmine blasts, targeting a motorbike convoy of Central Reserve Police Force jawans near Kantapahari, seven km from Lalgarh in West Bengal on Saturday.
The rebels opened fire on the jawans immediately after the explosions. A gun battle ensued when the jawans retaliated. The Maoists finally fled the scene. None was injured.
Paschim Medinipur Superintendent of Police Manoj Kumar Verma said six CRPF jawans were on their way to the Kantapahari camp when the landmines went off. The exchange of fire continued for a few minutes. Combing operations have been launched.
