Rejecting apprehensions that the ill-fated ambulance which hit a landmine killing five persons in Kandhamal, was a case of "mistaken identity", Orissa police on Tuesday claimed that Maoists had consciously targeted the vehicle.
A day after the office of Orissa Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik received a fresh e-mail from suspected Maoists threatening a `Dantewada-type massacre`, police and cyber experts were on Friday detecting its origin.
Saddled with the problem of
left wing extremism (LWE), Orissa police is now facing a tough
time in maintaing law and order following displacement of
people at the upcoming industrial hubs and campus unrest.
