Nagpur, Apr 25 (UNI) The death toll following a massive operation against naxals in Maharashtra's Gadchiroli district since Sunday rose to 39, with bodies of two more naxals being fished out of the river on Wednesday, police said.
“Two more bodies of Naxals were recovered from the Indravati river during a search operation,” police said.
“Two more bodies and some body parts, probably eaten by crocodiles, were also fished out from the river in the Kasnasur forest area of Gadchiroli district,” police said.

The operation is the result of coordination between C-60 commandos of the Maharashtra Police in hot pursuit of naxals.
“In the operation by C-60 squad in the Kasanasur forest area, 16 bodies of Naxals (9 men and 7 women) were recovered on April 22,” police said.
