Bhubaneswar, (Reporterspen), April 17: In response to a fierce gunbattle in Chhattisgarh’s Kanker district, resulting in the death of 29 naxals, Odisha police have implemented stringent measures. Today, they sealed all entry and exit points to Chhattisgarh, including the roadway connecting the Odisha-Chhattisgarh border.

Security forces have intensified search operations and patrols across sensitive locations within the state, maintaining a heightened vigilance over Maoist hideouts along the border regions. Collaborating closely, Chhattisgarh police and their Odisha counterparts have exchanged crucial intelligence inputs.

Taking proactive steps, entry and exit points of four border districts – Nabarangpur, Koraput, Malkangiri, and Nuapada – have been sealed. This preemptive action comes amidst concerns of insurgents seeking refuge in Odisha’s forests following significant losses in Chhattisgarh, as highlighted by ADG (Operation) Devidutta Singh.

Odisha police, alongside BSF, SOG, DVF, and CRPF, remain on high alert to address any potential adversities. Security forces are utilizing night binoculars and drones to closely monitor border areas, ensuring a robust defense against any potential threats.
