Landmines found in Orissa
Berhampur: Three landmines and
25 detonators planted by the Maoists were on Monday unearthed by
the police in Orissa`s Ganjam district.
During a combing operation, a bomb disposal squad
defused the explosives weighing around 50 kg and 25 detonators
near Barada village, located about 15 km from Baragada, said
SP (Ganjam) Nitinjit Singh.
Before the Republic Day celebrations on Wednesday,
police suspect the Maoists might have planned any major
incident targeting police vehicles in the district.
The combing operation was launched in the area in a
strategic manner by the police after the ultras had raided the
camp of a contractor constructing the road under the Pradhan
Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) and recently torched at least
five vehicles, which were used in the construction work at
Barada and Merikote last week.
