Security forces recover IED and explosive materials on Andhra-Odisha border area

Malkangiri: Based on a specific input, an operation was launched in Bejangiwada RF, the general area of Bodigetta and MPV -21, on Andhra Pradesh-Odisha border during which the security forces recover IED and explosive materials on Saturday.

The Joint Operation Party of Border Security Force and District Police Malkangiri, while searching the area in the foothills of the Bejangiwada RF, reportedly recovered one unarmed Tiffin IED and 4 bags of Gelatin sticks from a rocky crevice near village Tekguda and Dulagandi, under Kalimela Police limits of Malkangiri.

Security forces in the region are alert and always in service of the local inhabitants. This effort would certainly demotivate the Maoist sympathisers and enhance public support for the security forces. Kalimela area was once been a Maoist hotbed and Bejangiwada RF used to be the hideout of the Maoists and their sympathizers. Maoists used to hide IEDs, explosives and other related materials in this area, which they generally uses against Security Forces operating in the area.

Troops in the area are consistently searching for such hideouts in the Bejangiwada RF and other nearby forest areas. We are hopeful that we can unearth other hideouts if any in the area in future as well.
