Tirunelveli: Combing operations have been intensified in Western Ghats after an Odisha-based Maoist was nabbed recently in Tenmalai forest area in Kerala, adjacent to this district, forest department officials said here on Thursday.

Jaghwanth Poojari, a Maoist from Ghodpur in Odisha, was recently nabbed by forest department personnel in Kerala, and produced before a court at Punalur and remanded to judicial custody, they said.

The officials said combing operations were intensified as they feared more Maoists could have sneaked in from Kerala.

The operations would continue and permanent armed forest department would be deployed at vantage points, the officials said.
