Combing operation intensified at Hilang (Orissa)

DEOGARH: Police have called a public meeting at Hilang on Thursday in a bid to reach out to the people. Talking to this website's newspaper, Deogarh SP Shafeen Ahmed K said besides hearing people's grievances the administration will also organise a health camp, folk festival and other entertainment and welfare activities.

The decision was taken after the Naxals observed the first death anniversary of the three Naxalites, who were killed on April 18 last year in Barkhol forest under Ada gram panchayat. About 20 ultras were taking rest in Barkhol forest when they were caught unawares and surrounded by security personnel.

In an exchange of fire that ensued, at least three ultras were shot dead. This was followed by a second encounter on July 3, 2006 when four more ultras were gunned down in Raniguda under Jharagagua gram panchayat of Tileibani block. The Naxals have reportedly decided to construct a memorial to commemorate the death of their colleagues at the site. This decision is being considered as a comeback plan of the Naxals, police said.
