Maoists block road during bandh in Kandhamal

Tuesday, 29 December 2020 | PNS | PHULBANI

Maoists blocked the Kotagarh-Muniguda road near Radiguma in Kandhamal district on Monday by felling trees during the bandh observed by the Red rebels. Vehicular movement was temporarily hit due to the incident.

The ultras also put up posters at various places in Kotagarh and Tumudibandha areas of the district appealing people to extend support to the bandh call. In the posters, the Maoists have opposed construction of the CRPF camp in the area and destroying of ganja cultivation. The Red rebels have also alleged that tribal people are being engaged as police informers by money and false promises.

The Maoists had earlier given an Odisha bandh call for the day protesting the recent deaths of several Maoist cadres in encounters with security forces.

Releasing an audio clip in this regard, CPI-Maoist Odisha Committee spokesperson Sonali said the rebels would give befitting reply to the deaths of the cadres. Terming the deaths as killings by SOG and DVF jawans, she warned of destroying the police informers network.
