KalingaTV News Network
Phulbani: Maoists have called for a 24-hour bandh in four districts of the state tomorrow to protest the death of five red rebels in the recent police encounters.
The Kandhamal-Kalahandi-Boudh-Nayagarh (KKBN) division of CPI (Maoist), though posters which were found at different places in Gatangi and Baliguda today, have called for the day-long bandh in Kandhamal, Kalahandi, Boudh and Nayagarh districts.
In the posters, the members of the out-lawed group have condemned the killings of their fellow-beings during combing operations by police and Special Operation Group (SOG) personnel in Sudukumpa forest near Golanki village in the district last week.
The rebels had blocked major roads near Pokharibandha and Baliguda by placing tree branches which had disrupted vehicular traffic on the route.
Meanwhile, security has been tightened in the districts to maintain law and order during the bandh.
