JEYPORE: A massive combing operation is on in the naxal-dominated Naryanpatna and Parvatipuram jungle on the Odisha -Andhra Pradesh border for the last three days to nab the top Maoists leaders suspected to be camping in the area.

More than one thousand armed forces of both the states were involved in the coming operation, sources said. Special police operation teams were doing air sorties in the border villages at a radius of 1,000 km to find out the hideouts of the naxals, sources said.

Acting on intelligence inputs that some top leaders of the Odisha Andhra Pradesh Zone of the banned outfit were camping in the jungles, the combined police forces of both the states lauched the joint operation.

Earlier, police got success by arresting more than 10 naxalite cadres, including a top women cadre in Koraput and Malkangiri districts. This time police hopes to arrest some Maoists during the ongoing joint combing operation.

As per the information received by Security personnel more than 1,000 naxals were running camps in the Narayanptna and Parvatipuram Jungles.

Though police refused to say anything about the combing operation, Koraput DIG S R Pridarshi, his counter part of Visakhapatnam, senior BSF officials were monitoring the operation round the clock, sources said. (UNI)
