VIZIANAGARAM: Security forces unearthed a major dump of Maoists in the faraway Duggeru forest area in Makkuva mandal of Vizianagaram district on Monday.
The dump contained more than 40 kilos of explosive material and other weapons.
Sources said the Greyhounds forces found the dump between Modangi and Balugeda areas near Yerra Samanthavalasa, which was once PWG Naxalites stronghold in the district.
“The movement of Maoists has weakened in the last five years. The rebels might have stored the explosives long ago,” police sources said.
