BSF Unearths Hidden Maoist Caches in Odisha’s Malkangiri, Intensifies Operations

Malkangiri: The Border Security Forces (BSF) have unearthed multiple Maoist dumps during a search operation in the Silakota reserve forest area, within the Podia police limits in Odisha’s Malkangiri district.

Acting on specific intelligence inputs, troops from the 142 Battalion conducted a thorough search, resulting in the discovery of concealed Maoist articles. The dumps were strategically buried beneath trees, spaced approximately four meters apart, covering an area of about 300 square meters near the connecting road of Bapanpalli village.

Malkangiri district, known for its high Naxal activity, has been a focus area for BSF operations. These recoveries are expected to significantly disrupt Maoist activities and undermine their capabilities to confront the escalating dominance of security forces.

Previously, these regions were heavily influenced by Maoist factions. The recovered items, including IEDs, arms, and materials for making explosives, highlight the ongoing threat posed by Maoist insurgents against security personnel and local inhabitants.

Following the recovery, BSF has announced plans to intensify combing operations in the area, aiming to ensure the safety of both security personnel and civilians.
