Maoists set police outpost on fire in Kandhamal
Phulbani: Armed Maoists set afire a
police outpost at Subarnagiri in Orissa`s Kandhamal district Thursday morning, police said.
Around 50 ultras, including women, struck in the wee
hours and ransacked the police outpost under Kotagada police
limits, about 140 kms from here, Superintendent of Police
Pravin Kumar said.
The red rebels set afire the building before disappearing
into the nearby forest shouting slogans against security
forces and anti-naxal operations, he said, adding that
no casualty or injury was reported in the attack.
The Maoists also put up some posters in the area warning
against construction of new police buildings and deployment of
security forces, police said.
Additional force had been sent to the area for
conducting combing and patrolling, they said.
The incident took place about a year after the red
rebels blew up a police outpost at naxal-infested Katingia
using landmines, they said.
