INDIA - Neither and none can stop people's war!

 Angul Police Gears up to Check Maoist Menace
ANGUL: As the Maoists plan to include Angul district in their corridor plan, police administration has geared up to foil their attempt. SP Rajesh Pandit Uttam Rao, who was earlier posted in Maoist-infested Rayagada district, said, “Intelligence inputs mention that the Maoists are planning to make inroads into Angul to make it one of their key corridors to link Kandhamal and Nuapada with Deogarh and beyond. The Red ultras, who used Sambalpur route, now abandoned that area due to the presence of Central forces there.” He called upon the policemen to be extra alert and not give the Maoists any space, said Rao. “The areas under Thakurgarh, Handappa, Chhendipada and Pallahara police limits are most vulnerable as Maoist presence has been established in these pockets in the last few months,” the SP said.

The security forces were engaged in a combat with armed Maoists in hilly areas near Chhendipada last year. Rao said combing operation by special forces is being conducted in sensitive belts to flush out undesired elements and police are on their toes in the wake of this fresh menace. Meanwhile, reports on movement of some armed cadres in Laxmipur forest under Handappa police limits in Sambalpur district are being verified. The area is linked with Satkosia, Hemamura and Batrakhole forests. A year back, some Maoist cadres were spotted by the villagers in this area, he informed.
