A huge Cache of arms were recovered from the site.

The troops dismantled the weapon factory and the training camp established along with the factory and while withdrawing, the Maoists who had been waiting in an ambush opened indiscriminate fire on the security forces and tried to encircle the troops.

Commander Manoranjan divided his team into three and launched counter attack.
