Security Alert In Odisha After 8 Maoists Killed In Chhattisgarh


Security forces have been put on high alert in five districts of Odisha in the wake of yesterday’s killing of eight Maoists in neighbouring Chhattisgarh, a senior police official said today.

Security forces yesterday killed at least eight Maoist cadres, including four women, in a fierce encounter in Chhattisgarh’s Bijapur.

Odisha Director General of Police R P Sharma today said the Naxals were under pressure in Chhattisgarh after yesterday’s encounter, and hence the five bordering districts have been put on alert to prevent their influx into his state.

“We have asked forces in districts like Nuapada, Malkangiri, Bargarh, Koraput and Nabarangpur to remain in a state of high alert after yesterday’s anti-Maoist operation in Chhattisgarh,” Sharma told PTI.  Read More
