Around 9:30 pm, when forces were segregating the area on the outskirts of Pardhauni village, the Naxals opened indiscriminate firing on the police personnel which they answered. As per reports, the firing lasted for 20 minutes. Some Naxals even fled the spot.

Jitendra Shukla said, “During a search of the encounter site, bodies of four ultras, including two women, clad in ‘uniform’ were recovered. Police also found an AK-47 rifle, an SLR rifle, and two 12-bore guns.”
