BARGARH: Maoist posters were found in several places of Bargarh on Saturday. Ahead of their Martyrs’ Week from July 28 to August 3, the Maoists sought support from people for their movement.

Posters and red flags were found at Jharmunda Chhack on Padampur-Paikmal road. Similarly, handbills printed in Hindi were found scattered in the area.

In the posters, the Maoists opposed the policies being pursued by the Narendra Modi led Government at the Centre and accused Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and Chhattisgarh Chief Minster Raman Singh of handing over natural resources to corporate and industrial houses.

On Thursday, similar posters were found pasted in Bhuliasikuan under Khariar police limits in Nuapada district and Mahakhand village under Turekela block in Balangir district. On July 22, police had seized Maoist posters from Khapanpali village under Sohela block of the district.

Exchange of Fire

An exchange of fire between Maoists and Special Operation Group (SOG) jawans took place in an area bordering Kalahandi and Phulbani on Friday. At least seven Maoist camps were destroyed in the area and the security forces seized a huge cache of arms and ammunition.

Sources said during patrolling, the SOG jawans opened fire at the Maoists to which, the latter retaliated. Unable to face the attack, Maoists managed to escape from the area. No casualty was reported.
