Maoists regrouping in Saranda?
In the wake of Maoist attack on Friday, regrouping of Maoist forces has the security forces, manning the Orissa-Jharkhand border, on their toes.
The ultras last struck in a big way in the first week of December 2010 when five villagers in the Bonai subdivision were killed. Five months later, they struck again on Friday mid-night by blowing up the railway track and setting vehicles afire.
Police said the alleged encounter killings of four armed cadres, including two area commanders, in the second week of February and arrest of over 60 Maoists in recent times, had made an impact on the Maoists as three of them have even surrendered.
