VISAKHAPATNAM: Three suspected Maoists were allegedly killed during an exchange of fire with police in Visakhapatnam agency region on Wednesday evening.

Quoting preliminary information, Superintendent of Police Akun Sabharwal told The Hindu that after the gun battle, three bodies of men were found near Edupulamma forest area in Mampa police station limits, about 130 km from here.

The encounter took place between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. Due to sunset and thick forest terrains, none could reach the encounter site from the nearby police station.

Details would be available on Thursday morning, the SP said.
