Armed Maoists attacked a police camp in West Bengal's West Midnapore district and fired at police personnel, nearly a week after they blew up a forest office.
A group of over 20 rebels Tuesday night surrounded the Neguria police camp in West Midnapore, about 200 km from here, and opened fire.
'We are yet to ascertain the number of casualties. The group attacked the police camp and fired around 20 rounds. The police personnel retaliated. The gun battle continued for sometime in the dead of the night,' West Bengal Inspector General (Law and Order) Raj Kanojia told IANS.
He said the police chased the attackers but they escaped in the dark.
'Neguria is a very well-fortified police camp and about 100 trained police personnel are posted there with modern arms and ammunition. The police officials also fought a brave battle to thwart the Maoist attack,' Kanojia said.
Neguria police camp is situated at a very strategic location - at the tri-junction of West Midnapore, Bankura and Purulia districts, flanking Jharkhand.
The Maoists targeted the police camp as a part of their rapid domination strategy to set up a free corridor along Jharkhand and the three West Bengal districts.
On Aug 4, a six-member group of Maoist guerrillas blew up a forest office at Lalgarh in West Midnapore. No one was injured as the Maoists had evacuated all forest officials from the building before detonating the explosives.
On June 27, rebels burnt down the Birandih railway station in neighbouring Purulia district.
On May 28, the Maoists attacked the house of Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) leader Upen Mahato in West Midnapore district's Jabada village, killing his father-in-law.
