Sources say that police lines were attacked around 2100 IST to prevent any reinforcement from reaching prison authorities. There were simultaneous attacks on the jail and police lines in the heart of town. The area reverberated with gunfire for about two hours as police put up resistance at the gates of the jail and near the district collectorate. Here, onlookers point to a petrol bomb used by the Maoists.
