Berhampur: Vital information
about Maoist plans and their network was uncovered by the
police during an ongoing combing operation in forests in
Ganjam-Kandhamal border, police said on Sunday.
The joint combing by Orissa police, CRPF and COBRA
personnel is on for the third day today and a Maoist camp in
the forest near Kerubadi in Daringbadi in Kandhamal district
has been destroyed.
A large cache of arms, kitbags, CDs, booklets and some
documents belonging to the Maoists were seized during the
operation, the police said.
DIG (Southern Range) R K Sharma said police was
studying the documents. “The seized documents revealed many information about the network of Maoists and their plans...
It will take some time to reach a conclusion?"
The training camp, believed to have been set up
several months ago, was unearthed by the security personnel
during an aerial survey for anti-Maoist operation. At least 30
to 40 ultras are believed to be under training there but all
of them managed to flee after a heavy exchange of fire with
security personnel on Friday, he added.
“It is suspected that they (Maoists) were planning an
attack similar to Nayagarh mayhem of 2008 in which 13 police
personnel were killed,” the police said.
