Maoists Call For Odisha Bandh On Dec 28

Malkangiri: The Maoists have given an Odisha bandh call on December 28 protesting recent encounter at Alampakka area under ‘Swabhiman Anchal’ in Malkangiri district which claimed lives of two of their prominent cadres.

Releasing an audio clip in this regard, CPI-Maoist Odisha Committee spokesperson Sonali said the rebels will give befitting reply to the deaths of the cadres. Terming the deaths as killings by SOG and DVF jawans, she warned of destroying the police informers network.

The Maoist organisation has rejected Odisha DGP Abhay’s appeal to the rebels for surrendering before police, she said.

She also urged people to make the bandh successful by extending support.

Two Maoists including a woman cadre of the outlawed organisation were gunned down on December 13 during an exchange of fire between security personnel and Maoists.
