Raipur: A CoBRA commando was released by Maoists after being kept in captivity for over 100 hours following the deadly encounter in Chhattisgarh on April 3, the Chhattisgarh government said.

Rakeshwar Singh Manhas was taken hostage during the three-hour gun battle, which led to 22 security persons — including an Odia jawan — being killed. A huge team of security personnel were looking to hunt down a rebel Maoist leader in Chhattisgarh’s Bijapur district.
