Malkangiri: The joint operation launched by Odisha SOG and BSF jawans has hit upon a hidden material dump of the left-wing extremists (LWEs) and recovered a huge quantity of explosive materials.
Briefing media, Malkangiri SP Rishikesh Dnyandeo Khilari said, “In the past few days, a joint operation was launched by our Odisha SOG and a unit of BSF. We had received some inputs from the operation. Basing on it, the security forces were undertaking searches in Mukudipalli, Gurasetu and Beijing areas under Jodango PS. During this operation, we recovered some explosive dump from the areas.”
“The dump comprises one country-made revolver, a claymore mine, three-meter long Codex wire, various types of explosives, eight electronic detonators, a large oxygen cylinder, camera flash with switch, iron rods, some electric wires and some Maoist literature. From these seized materials, we suspect that these articles were intended to be used against the innocent tribals and our security forces. They intended for preparing IEDs to be used for anti-national subversive activities. Further enquiry is being conducted,” the Malkangiri SP informed.
