Four Andhra policemen injured naxal attack in Orissa

Malkangiri: Four policemen from Andhra Pradesh were injured when Maoists triggered four landmine blasts in Poplur area of Malkangiri district on Saturday evening.

The incident occurred when the policemen of both Andhra Pradesh and Orissa were carrying out a joint combing operation in the area in the wake of the ongoing panchayat polls.

The blasts took place around 5-30 p.m. when the joint police team was moving ahead on the road between Dankarai and Poplur village under Chitrakonda police station limits of the district.

As the injured police personnel had sustained grievous injuries, they were rushed to a hospital in Visakhapatnam.

However, polling in the third phase of panchayat elections in the region was not affected by the naxal violence. About 60 per cent voters cast their votes.

Malkangiri district has been witnessing increasing naxalite attacks in the recent weeks.
