Malkangiri (Odisha): A Maoist camp was
destroyed and several weapons and explosive devices were
seized during a joint combing operation by security forces in
a jungle in Odisha`s Malkangiri district in Sunday.

Acting on a tip-off, the elite anti-naxal Special
Operations Group (SOG) force of Odisha and police launched
combing operation and spotted the camp in Tekguda forest under
Kalimela area, about 50 km from here, Inspector-in-Charge of
Kalimela police station, Anirudh Routray said.

Though the red rebels fled from the scene on getting
information about combing operation, police seized three
electronic detonators, more than 200 metres of wire used for
landmine, two country-made rifles and many live cartridges
from the spot, he said.

A camera flash and some Maoists posters and
leaflets were also seized.
