The highly tensed Andhra Odisha Border (AOB) has once again rattled with the sound of gunfire on Thursday. The top leaders of the banned maoists group narrowly escaped from the encounter that took place between police and the Maoists at Munchangipattu and Pedabayalu forest areas.
The incident came to light very late. The top leader of the Maoists Akkiraju Haragopal alias RK escaped from the encounter. However the AOB secretary of the Party Tirupati and his wife Aruna sustained serious injuries during the encounter. The police came to the conclusion about the injuries to the Maoists after combing the encounter spot .
Meanwhile the ongoing combing operations have come to a halt due to heavy rains in the forest area. On the other hand, the Maoists are planning to hold their martyrs day celebrations in a grand manner in the last week of this month.
