Elated over the success of the personnel of Odisha Police who eliminated at least seven Left Wing Extremists in Bolangir and Kandhamal districts in the past two days, Sharma said the state would keep the momentum and try to flush out the rebels creating trouble in certain pockets of Odisha.
Maoists continue to pose big challange to the police in Malkangiri, Koraput, Kandhamal Nuapada and Bolangir districts and special operations would be launched in certain areas with specific plans, Sharma said.
On the recent oprations, the DGP said both were meticulously planned as no casualties were reported from security forces side.
The recovery of several arms including AK-47, Insas, and SLR rifle indicated that the opposition is heavily armed, sources said.
