Raipur: Security forces unearthed a Naxal camp and arrested two ultras following a gun battle with them in Chhattisgarh's Narayanpur district, police said today.

"The troops mobilised on the basis of a tip-off about a Naxal training camp in the village. On seeing the security forces, Naxals opened indiscriminate firing on them following which troops also launched a retaliatory attack, after which the ultras fled into jungle. However two of them were nabbed," Gupta said.

A 12-bore gun, one air gun and other Naxal related material were recovered from the camping site, he said.

"Those arrested were identified as Som Sai Usendi (33) and Lakhmu Netam (31)," he added.

On interrogation, the arrested ultras said the 'commander' of East Bastar Divisional Committee—Kamlesh—was also among the Naxals who fled the camp.
