BALAGHAT: Police in Madhya Pradesh's Balaghat have recovered Maoist posters with "death warrants" issued against the names of security forces and police informers in Maoist-affected areas, the police said on Thursday.

Balaghat Police Chief Gaurav Tiwari told IANS that on Wednesday that some officers found such posters in Lal Ghati area under the Roopjhar police jurisdiction. 

These posters also held out dire warnings for police informers. 

Tiwari said security forces were continuing with their anti-Maoist campaign in the jungle.

According to official sources, the posters were a retaliatory move by Maoists against the security forces' armed action.
