Naxals sneak in, Jeypore on alert

Friday March 2 2007 13:05 IST

JEYPORE: An alert has been sounded in Koraput district after over 100 hardcore Naxalites from neighbouring Chhattisgarh and Malkangiri district reportedly entered the tribal pockets of Jeypore sub-division. According to reports, four days back, the district police received an intelligence report from Bastar district of Chhattisgarh over movement of armed Naxals towards Jeypore sub-division.

Sources said the Naxalites sneaked into Jeypore sub-division areas by taking the river route near Ghadaghat, bordering Orissa and Chhattisgarh. They were heading towards Boipariguda and Kundra block through the Ramgiri forests. Apprehending attacks on major establishments, the police administration is on the alert and security has been beefed up to avoid any untoward incident.

According to reports, extremist outfits from Orissa and Andhra Pradesh would reportedly hold a meeting soon to spread their activities from Ramgiri forest areas of Boipariguda and Kundra blocks, which are non-Naxal zones, to neighbouring Nabarangpur district which has not seen any kind of radical activity so far.

Meanwhile, Koraput SP Arun Bothra visited several sensitive pockets of the district on Wednesday to review the current strategy of the police. New India Express
