ANF launches combing operations in Udupi district

Manipal (PTI): The Anti-Naxal Force (ANF) on Thursday launched combing operations in Thombattu, a thickly forested area in Kundapur taluk near here, following reports that a five-member naxal group had visited the place on Wednesday night.

The group, which included a woman member, stayed in a house and left after distributing pamphlets and pasting posters urging people to boycott the ensuing Assembly polls in Karnataka, Western Range IGP A M Prasad told PTI here.

Following a tip-off, the ANF led by its chief Labooram rushed to the area and launched combing operations, he said.
