Maoists Loot Bank in Orissa

In Orissa’s Koraput district, armed Maoists looted around Rs six lakh from a State Bank of India (SBI) branch after attacking guard and staff of the bank, said police.

Police said that nearly a dozen Maoists, armed with sophisticated weapons, broke into the bank last night and overpowered the lone security guard posted at the bank located in Machkund, about 530 km from Bhuwaneshwar.

All the roads leading to the bank had been blocked by the ultras who had felled a large number of trees in a bid to prevent police and security personnel from moving to the spot easily, police said.
