Koraput/Malkangiri, Sept 3:
Briefing newsmen at Koraput, southwestern IG Yashwant Jethwa said that acting on a tip-off that the left wing ultras were running a camp inside the forest at Majhiguda, a joint team of police forces of Koraput and Malkangiri districts began a combing operation in the area.
During the operation, the team came across a Maoist camp deep inside the forest. Later, they seized an SLR rifle and a pistol from the camp which was later destroyed.
There was no encounter during the operation as the Maoists had fled the camp by the time the security forces arrived at the spot, Jethwa added.
