Maoists torch mobile towers

Koraput/Gajapati: The Maoists on the first day of the week long observation of the Peoples` Liberation Guerrilla Army(PLGA) today torched two mobile toers, one each at village Matahapada under Baiparigu block and Dandapalli panchayat.

While the ultras have urged the tribals through posters to provide support to the organisation, vehicular traffic has been badly hampered on several routes especially in southern Odisha. The Maoists have given a two-day shutdown call from December 4 in protest of the killing of top naxal leader Kishenji in an encounter in West Bengal.
