The naxals were suspected to be members of the Bellamkonda dalam, which is operating on the borders of Guntur and Nalgonda districts. According to police sources, five naxals who were on the way to Adlur from Reballe side indiscriminately opened fire on the combing police team.
The policemen opened fire in retaliation and two bodies were found later at the site of the encounter.
Three naxals took to their heels under the cover of firing. Earlier in the day, the police said they chased one naxal who jumped into the Krishna. Though they claim that he was dead, his body was not recovered. Some revolutionary literature and an old tapancha were recovered from the spot and the deceased are yet to be identified.
10 naxals, others surrender
