Berhampur, Feb 16 (LocalWire) Panic gripped locals following surfacing of Maoist posters at Sudra in Kandhamal district’s Baliguda police station limits on Saturday.
In the printed posters, the Maoists have warned police informers and two cops.
The posters were claimed to have been put up by Kalahandi, Kandhamal, Boudh and Nayagarh (KKBN) division of the outlawed CPI (Maoist).
They were almost similar to those found in December in the same area, sources said.
Pertinently, last time, in their poster, the outlawed organization had justified the murder of Rabindra Mallick, watchman of a construction camp, on Sudrukumpa-Tikarapada road on January 6.
Mallick was killed for being an alleged police informer.
“Other informers will also face same fate,” the ultras threatened in their posters.
The Maoists have appealed to the people to raise their voices to stop violence against Dalits, tribal people and minorities.
Earlier, same posters were spotted in various places of the district, including near Sudhananda Ashram at Kirikuti and Patangi under the same police station limits.
“We are verifying its genuineness,” said a senior police officer.
“There is no reason to panic as the police are keeping strict vigil on the situation and movement of the ultras in the area,” he said.
Meanwhile, police have reportedly stepped up patrolling and launched a combing operation in the area.
