According to reports, security forces have also recovered an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) weighing 7kgs near one of the effigies that was buried under the mud connected with a power source.
However, the IED was later diffused by the Central Reserve Police Force (CPRF) personnel.
As per CRPF officials, this total act of installing effigies and dummies was a tactic to confuse the security forces and to attack them.
It may be mentioned that, few weeks ago about ten naxals were gun down by security forces in a search operation while one District Reserve Guard personnel sustained injuries.
