Indian security forces and some 250 Naxal rebels on Thursday fought in the western Indian state of Maharashtra, said highly placed sources.

The fighting took place when a group of Naxalites opened fire on a joint police party in Maharashtra's Gadchiroli district, said the sources.

Police retaliated and the exchange of fire lasted for an hour. A chopper with an additional police force has rushed to the site, said the sources.

No report of casualties has been available.
