A Maoist poster was found pasted on a hume pipe along the NH-57 near Sahajpal village under Baunsini police limits on Sunday.

In the handwritten poster in red, Maoists threatened death penalty for corrupt officials and urged people to help identify them. The poster has been signed by one Arjun Singh who has identified himself as area commander of CPI (Maoists).

Although it is said that the Maoists had used the forest surrounding Talagaon post- Nayagarh mayhem, reports of Maoists trying to regroup in the district have also been received. With the Boudh strategically located with connectivity to Sambalpur, Angul, Phulbani, Nayagarh, Balangir and Sonepur, Maoists have long been planning to set up a base in the district. Boudh SP Bhawani Shankar Mishra said the poster is the handiwork of some mischievous elements.
