Maoists-Security Forces Engaged In Fire Exchange In Odisha’s Malkangiri

Malkangiri: Three days after three Maoists were killed in the district, another group of the banned outfit was engaged in a fierce exchange of fire with security forces on Friday.

According to sources, following intelligence report that the Maoists had put up a camp at a hill in Tulasi Forest Range under Mathili police limits, the security forces launched a combing operation.

As the security forces went closer to the camp, the Maoists opened fire at them. In retaliation, the security forces also started firing. The fire exchange was continuing till the report was filed. Details are awaited.

It may be noted that on October 12, three Maoist cadres were in an encounter by District Voluntary Force (DVF) and Special Operation Group (SOG) in Tulasi Forest Range. They were carrying a cash reward of Rs 10 lakh on their heads. A large cache of weapons including one SLR Rifle, one INSAS Rifle, six magazines, 59 live bullets and IED explosives were recovered from the place.
