KHAMMAM: : Suspected Maoists triggered a road-side on Lenin Nagar main road in Cherla mandal in the district on Sunday. However, no one was injured or any property damaged in the blast.

Maoists gave a 24-hour district bandh call on Sunday protesting against the encounter that took place at Gollagudem forest area in Maharashtra on June 18 in which three Maoists were gunned down by the police. The bandh call evoked poor response.

The situation was normal in all places including Maoist-affected mandals in the agency area. Maoist district committee, which put up wall posters at some places in Cherla, urged intellectuals, people and students to condemn the encounter and pay tributes to the martyrs.

Meanwhile, people of Cherla and Venkatapuram villages are in the grip of fear with series of encounters and killings taking place for the last few days.

Recently, one Tellam Ramesh was injured in a bomb explosion near Venkatapuram. Earlier, posters put by the Maoists were spotted at the same place demanding stop to fake encounters and  Operation Green Hunt.
