Suspected Maoist activities around Satkosia

Statesman News Service
ANGUL, Dec. 3: Suspected Maoist cadres have reportedly been seen moving around the Satkosia forest area, 40 km from here.
Recently villagers of Laimunda, Kantapara, Baghamunda, Alaberi and Dandabahali reported district police about movement of many suspected uniformed people in the surrounding jungle. Police team led by local circle inspector of police here rushed to the area each time but returned empty handed describing the report to be false. They hardly went up to the suspected hideout locations in the jungle.
The first report came to them on November 20 when villagers of Laimunda said two unknown persons wearing black uniforms interacted with a villager. The second face off took place by some village youths of local village in Tainsi jungle with some strangers. People also saw fire and smoke from the forest located near Gojamundia hill in the night indicating cooking by those people inside the forest.
A couple of days ago a 12-year-old child from village Loiamunda was intercepted by a stranger in uniform near their village jungle who enquired about the movements of police in their village. The father of the child informed Angul police superintendent about the incident.
The ultras are reportedly trying to establish their base in the area as the villagers near the sanctuary are in distress and provide an ideal situation for Naxals to entrench themselves.
