STORY IN PICTURES: Odisha’s biggest single day ‘success’ against Maoist insurgents

Based on specific intelligence input about the movements of Kalimela Local Guerilla Squad (LGS) of the Maoist insurgents, the district police laid an ambush and executed its plan. In the end, the police emerged victorious with fourteen insurgents dead and recoveries of 01 AK47 assault rifle, 01 9mm pistol, 10 country-made guns, 01 country-made pistol & 02 claymore mines.

It is being said that among those killed are also many who took part in the Darbha massacre in May this year, where the entire top brass of the Chhattisgarh state Congress leadership was wiped out. The police, however is not confirming anything right now.

What can certainly be said is that in a district known as a truly ‘naxal dominated’ one, this action of the police is worth applauding.

My sources tell me that this LGS crossed over from Chhattisgarh’s Sukma into Malkangiri last night and their moves were being monitored by the police.

Apart from grieving over their lost colleagues, it is this intelligence gathering capability of the police that should give the rebels some sleepless nights.
