Malkangiri: Foiling Maoists’ plan to target security personnel by triggering a blast, BSF Jawans today recovered seven landmines and few tiffin bombs near Gora Setu in Swabhiman Anchal (cut off areas) under Chitrakonda police limits in Malkangiri district.
The security personnel detected the landmines when they were moving towards Tutugandhi from Gora Setu during a combing operation. Later, a Bomb Detection and Disposal (BDD) team was called in to defuse the bombs.
After the seizure, the BSF personnel along with police intensified combing operation in the area.
Maoists had planted the bombs targeting security personnel to make their presence felt in Swabhiman Ancha, said officials.
