In a massive operation launched by Indian security forces in the central state of Jharkhand's West Singhbhum district, 10 extreme left-wing Naxal rebels were killed and several rebel camps destroyed, police said Monday.

The operation is likely to continue for the next few days.

Around 2,000 security personnel from the state police and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) have launched the massive operation in Saranda forest in the district against the Naxal rebels who have made the life of local villagers miserable.

Three helicopters are being used for surveillance and air- lifting of the injured troopers.

"Around 10 Maoist guerrillas have been killed in the operation since last Saturday. Bodies of some of the Maoists have been recovered," Jharkhand Director General of Police Neyaz Ahmad said here.

Separately, the Naxal rebels also triggered blasts at a hostel at Anandpur of the Saranda forest.

The police chief said the rebels had detonated around 13 landmine blasts in the last three days.
