MALKANGIRI: A Special Operation Group (SOG) team destroyed a Maoist camp in Puluguda reserve forest under Kalimela police limits on Sunday afternoon. The security personnel seized huge amount of detonators, transistor systems and Maoist literature from the camp, about 18 km from Kalimela.
A team led by Malkangiri SP Himanshu Lall detected the camp and an exchange of fire ensued. While the ultras fired 50 rounds, police fired 200 rounds in retaliation.
There was no report of any injury or casualty. Lall said, a VHF set too was recovered from the camp. This is the second such camp to be destroyed.
A couple of days back, police had gunned down two ultras at Tendimetla and nabbed two other Naxal cadres.
