Orissa police launch search to trace Maoists
Bhubaneswar: Security personnel on Monday launched a search to trace injured Maoists or bodies after
the encounter at Narayanpatna in Orissa`s Koraput district.
"They try to hide the killing of their cadre. We are
sure some of them were hit by police bullets," Director
General (Inteligence) Prakash Mishra said.
The police, he said, were optimistic of getting
important clues on casualty on the side of the Maoists after
yesterday`s operation by the police and elite anti-Maoist
force Greyhounds from Andhra Pradesh, from 14 people who were
picked up for questioning.
A senior police officer said that watch was being
maintained on roads connecting Narayanpatna and Parvatipuram
in Andhra Pradesh.
The Maoists could have mingled with the local
population to escape detection, he said.
Two kit bags containing grenades and explosives were
found during the search.
