Rourkela: Maoist ultras Tuesday
torched two stationary trucks in Orissa`s Sundargarh district,
though the police had claimed to have sealed the Jharkhand
border following a major encounter in Saranda forest in the
neighbouring state.

Police said, the Maoists torched two trucks parked
along the NH-215 in Roxi area under K.Balang police station
and left several posters at about 5.30 am.
Following the encounter with the Maoists in Saranda
forest in Jharkhand since Saturday, Rourkela police had
claimed that they had "sealed" the border to prevent the
ultras from entering into Orissa.

Police had said here that security was tightened with
heavy patrolling and vigil in the border areas.
After the arson today, the police reached the spot and
started combing operation.
