Raipur: Seven powerful improvised explosive devices (IEDs), allegedly planted by Naxals, were recovered in Chhattisgarh's insurgency-hit Dantewada district on Sunday, police said.

A team of Central Reserve Police Force's 111th and 230th battalions and the local police recovered the explosives in a forest between Aranpur and Kondapara, a senior police said.

 

Road between Aranpur and Jagargundai is being constructed in this densely forested area, 450 km from Raipur.

Based on inputs provided by Sukka Ram Mandavi, a Naxal cadre  arrested last week, security forces launched a de-mining exercise on the route and spotted IEDs planted at various locations.

Security forces have often suffered casualties due to the landmines planted by Naxals on this route, he said.
