ORISSA: Maoists blow up police stations in Koraput

Bhubaneswar, Jun 8 (PTI) Heavily armed Maoists launched a series of attacks blowing up two police stations and an outpost and setting ablaze police vehicles in Orissa's Koraput district, prompting a major operation by the elite anti-naxal Special Operations Group to flush out the extremists.

About 100 ultras, including women, attacked two police stations at Baipariguda and Machhkund and a police outpost at Ramgiri in Koraput district, about 530 km from here, late last night. No casualties have been reported.

"Combing operation is on to flush out ultras. Koraput District Superintendent of Police (SP) and Range DIG have reached the spot," Chief Minister Navin Patnaik said adding the SOG jawans were engaged in the operation.

The ultras, opposing the setting up of a battalion anti-naxal force Cobra at Sunabeda in Koraput district, caught the police personnel unawares blowing up police buildings and torching their vehicles, sources said.

The ultras first struck at the police station at Baipariguda late last night, police said.

"The five police personnel posted there were forced to surrender at gun point before ultras exploded bombs to blow up the police station building," a police personnel present during the attack told PTI over phone. PTI



Naxalites blow up police station in Orissa

BHUBANESWAR: Armed Naxalites of a newly formed outfit Machhkund Dalam blew up the Baipariguda police station, a police barrack and set fire to a forest range last night after taking complete control of Baipariguda town in Koraput district for more than two hours.

A report reaching the state headquarters here today said the Naxalites, including a number of women cadres, laid siege to Baipariguda town at around 2200 hrs last night and blocked all the entry points to the town by felling trees and planting landmines.

The Naxalites then attacked the Baipariguda police station at around 2300 hrs and overpowered the unarmed seven police personnel present inside the police station.

They took the police personnel, including three Assistant Sub Inspectors, as hostage and then blew up the police station. The police station sustained heavy damages in which several assets and papers were burnt.

The Naxalites then went to a nearby underconstruction police barrack which was also blown up using powerful explosives. The next target was a forest range office which was also ransacked and burnt.

Several vehicles parked outside the police station and forest office were set ablaze by the red radicals.

Police said for almost over two hours the Naxalites took control of the town and asked the residents to remain indoors. Panic stricken residents of the town switched off the power and shop keepers downed their shutters to avoid the wrath of the left wing ultras.

Although the information of the naxalite attack on the police station reached the senior officials, police reinforcement could not be rushed to the place to counter the naxalites apprehending that the insurgents might have planted landmines enroute to the small town, just 22 kms away from Jeypore.

Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) South Western Range Sanjeeb Panda said the CRPF and jawans of the Special Operation Group (SOG) trained in anti naxal operations have rushed to the site to launch combing operations in the area.

Incidentally, the naxalite attack came barely two days after State Director General of Police (DGP) Manmohan Praharaj announced a special action plan to counter the growing naxal activities in the state which has spread to 17 of the 30 districts in the state.

The DGP admitted that situation in certain pockets of southern Orissa, including Malkangiri, was grave but denied that the areas were 'out of the hand' and falling to the control of Naxalites.

The geographical location of the district, remoteness of the area and its proximity to the rebel-prone districts of Khamar and East Godavari in Andhra Pradesh and some areas of Chhattisgarh were acting as impediments to counter the Maoists in the district, the DGP said.
