"The BSF Operational Party successfully recovered a Maoist dump in Balimela Reserve Forest in Malkangiri near the Andhra Pradesh-Odisha border," said BSF

Balimela Reserve Forest has been the safe haven for Maoist outfits for a long due to topographical reasons and a favourable conducive atmosphere.

"BSF troops and Police are actively operating in the area to curb the Maoist menace in the region and create a sense of security among the local populace so that Maoist ideology would not spread out anymore," BSF stated.

"Recovery of a such huge dump of IEDs, explosives and SBML guns during ongoing TCOC and Saheed Diwas (observed by Maoist outfit on 23rd March) would certainly demoralise the Maoist cadres and their sympathizers." the statement read.
