One more Maoist killed in Orissa

BHUBANESWAR: One more Maoist was killed and four others were nabbed in the combing operations against fleeing naxals, even as the security forces recovered a substantial quantity of explosives and arms looted by the rebels in Sunday’s attack on the Nalco bauxite mine in Orissa’s Koraput district, the police said on Tuesday.

“The ultra, whose body was recovered from the Panchpatmali jungle on Sunday, sustained bullet injuries in the exchange of fire on Monday night,” Deepak Kumar, SP, Koraput, said.

With this, the Maoist casualty rose to five, with four other bodies having been recovered on Monday. — PTI
