After a brief lull, SOG jawans and Maoists exchanged fire for about 10 minutes at Beherakhai village under the Saintla police station in Balangir district on Thursday morning.
According to information, some Red rebels suddenly opened fire at the Special Operation Group (SOG) jawans while the latter were on a patrolling operation at around 8.30 am near the village under the Tikhari Reserve Forest area. The jawans retaliated soon. Exchange of fire continued before the Maoists fled from the spot.
Police seized detonators, solar lights with battery charger wires, Maoist literatures and daily consumable items, including cooking food, from the spot, said Balangir SDPO Narayan Nayak.
In another incident, BSF personnel on Friday busted a Maoist camp in a jungle of Malkangiri district and recovered a huge cache of explosives from the ultras’ hideout.
The BSF personnel while conducting a search operation in Sishaguda forest under Khairput block found the hideout and recovered 200 explosives, 15 kg gelatin, 100 detonators and tiffin bombs. The Maoists had already left the camp.
