Nabarangpur: Panic gripped the locals after Maoist posters were found at Chandahandi-Jharigaon ghat in Umerkote in district on the last day of the Peoples Liberation Guerrilla Army (PLGA) observed by the ultras.

In the posters, CPI (Maoist) urged people to continue with their agitation to protect water, forest and land of the tribals.

Meanwhile, combing and anti-insurgency operations have been intensified in Maoist-dominated districts and in the bordering areas of Odisha to avoid any untoward incident, sources said.
