Maoists killed six people and abducted seven in a village in Bihar's Munger district, police said on Saturday.
Nearly 50 armed Maoists stormed Bangalwa Kareli village, about 200 km from Patna, early on Saturday.
"Five people were killed on the spot while one sustained serious injuries and died later in a hospital," a police officer said.
Bihar Police chief Neelmani said a senior police official has gone to the village and police have begun search operations in Munger. Security has been heightened in the village and top district officials are camping there.
Munger is considered a Maoist stronghold. Maoist deputy commander killed in gunbattle.
In another incident, a deputy commander of a local wing of the Communist Party of India-Maoist was killed in a gunfight with security forces early on Saturday in Orissa's Keonjhar district, police said.
Sunil was the second in command of the Kalinga Nagar division of the banned outfit.
A joint voluntary force of mineral rich Keonjhar and its neighbouring Jajpur district raided a Maoist camp near Pandapada village, about 280 km form here. The forces retaliated when the rebels opened fire at them.
During the exchange of fire, the Maoist deputy commander was killed while other rebels fled to a nearby forest, a police officer said.
A revolver, a country made gun, some detonators and other camp articles were seized from the site. No causality or injury has been reported from the police side.
Maoists are active in more than half of the state's 30 districts.
