BSF unearths multiple Maoist dumps in Silakota reserve forest in Odisha’s Malkangiri

Kalimela: Multiple Maoist dumps were recovered today by separate teams of border security forces (BSF) following a search operation carried out in the general area of Silakota reserve forest under Podia police limits in Malkangiri district.

Based on specific information received from a reliable source, the BSF troops of 142 Battalion carried out an extensive search leading to the recovery of Maoist articles. The dumps were buried beneath trees located closely at a distance of around four metres from each other and within an area of approximately 300 square metres inside the jungle from a connecting road of Bapanpalli village.

The Maiost articles recovered include:

BSF has been carrying out relentless operations in the highly Naxal-infested district of Malkangiri in South Odisha. Such recoveries would certainly dent Maoist strategy and dampen their spirits to take on ever-growing dominance of security forces, a press release mentioned.

Earlier these areas used to be highly influenced by Maoists and their sympathisers. The Maoist outfits keep IEDs, Arms & IED-making materials at isolated places to be used against the security forces and policemen operating in these areas. BSF is actively operating in Malkangiri district and extensively dominating the area, the BSF source expressed.

In the wake of recovery, the combing operations would be further intensified to make the area safe for security personnel as well as for inhabitants of the area.
