Security forces in Chhattisgarh have killed four Maoists in separate encounters that took place on Friday and Saturday in the Bastar region. This brings the total number of Maoists killed in the state so far this year to 50, marking a significant increase compared to previous years.

This figure represents more than double the number of Maoist fatalities recorded in 2023, which stood at 24. It also surpasses the total number of Maoist deaths reported since 2020. Looking back, security forces killed 30 Maoists in 2022, 47 in 2021, 36 in 2020, and 65 in 2019.

The recent encounters were concentrated in Bijapur district, where 33 Maoists have lost their lives this year. Dantewada, Kanker, Sukma, and Narayanapur districts have also seen Maoist fatalities, with six, five, four, and two deaths respectively.

These developments highlight an intensified focus on Maoist insurgency in Chhattisgarh. The rise in casualties suggests a more proactive approach by security forces in tackling the Maoist threat in the state.
