**Kandhamal:** Huge cache of explosives, ammunition and old currency notes were seized from a Maoist camp today.
There was an exchange of fire between the SOG jawans and the Maoists in Lankagarh GP area under Belghar PS limits of Kandhamal district.
“We launched an operation last night based on our intelligence inputs. Preliminary information revealed that there were about 20-25 Maoists in a camp who fled from the spot. As there is no mobile network in that area, the SOG jawans have been communicating by satellite phones,” informed Amitav Thakur, IG, Southern Range.
An operation was launched by the SOG which led to seizure of the camp along with the camp materials.
Operation is still continuing. More teams are being sent to that area and the combing operation has been intensified, said the IG.
Moreover, the SPs of the neighbouring areas have been informed about this exchange of fire.
