A naxal carrying a reward of Rs 5 lakh on his head was killed in an encounter with security personnel in Chhattisgarh's insurgency-affected Sukma district on Friday, police said.

The gun-battle took place in the forest of Borapara under Gadiras police station's jurisdiction when a team of the police's District Reserve Guard (DRG) was out for patrolling, said a senior official.

After the rebels fled from the spot, the body of a naxal was found in the area, he said.

The slain man was identified as Kamlesh, a member of the Malenger Area Committee which comes under the Darbha Division of the banned CPI Maoists, the official said.

He was carrying a cash reward of Rs 5 lakh on his head, the official added.
