A Naxal camp was busted by security forces in Chhattisgarh's Kondagoan district and locally-made grenades and other explosives were seized, police said Tuesday.

The operation on the camp located in the dense forest near Tuswal village under Mardapal police station limits was carried out Monday by a joint team of District Reserve Guard (DRG), Special Task Force (STF) and district force personnel, an official said.

"The Naxals fled when the security forces entered the camp. We have recovered 30 locally-made grenades, one pipe bomb, four bundles of wire, a packet of splinters used in air guns, Maoist literatureand pamphlets, English, Hindi and Telugu dictionaries, stationery, mobile chargers among other things," he said.

It appears the Maoists had assembled there to carry out some operation, he said.
