Launch service from Chitrakonda to the cut-off area of Malkangiri district was stopped on Wednesday following a threat by the Maoists, sources said.

The stoppage of the launch service completely disrupted communication between Chitrakonda and the five cut off panchayats in Kudumulugumma. Tribals were seen waiting at the river ghats to return to their villages in Chitrakonda.

Meanwhile, in response to the complaints from the locals, the Chitrakonda tehsildar said he would take up the matter with the district administration and the executive engineer of the Water Resources department at the earliest.
