Nayagarh: Naxals Vandalise Forest Office, Loot Guns

Nayagarh: Once again making their presence felt during the ongoing elections in Odisha, Maoists attacked the office of Banigoccha (East) Forest Range in Nayagarh district last night.

However, no casualty was reported in the incident.

Sources said around seven Maoists entered the office last night and looted four country-made guns from the officials. The ultras also threatened the foresters to kill them and later put up posters on the office walls before fleeing the spot.

On April 17, Maoists had killed an on-duty poll supervisor at Bandapada in Gochhapada police limits in Kandhamal district. Earlier on the same day, the red rebels had also torched a Government vehicle and a bike that were heading to Mungunipadar under Phiringia police limits in the district on election duty.
