Nayagarh: A forest range office in Nayagarh district of Odisha has been vandalised by suspected naxals on Tuesday. According to the police, the naxals also looted four guns and seven mobile phones. 

The ultras threatened the forest officials to kill them if they raise an alarm. They also pasted posters on the office walls before fleeing, said an official. 

The forest range office was located in a village called Banigochha (East), which falls under Daspalla police station. 

"Armed Maoists barged into my quarters and asked me about guns. When I refused to cooperate, they dragged me to the forest office premises. They vandalised the office and decamped with four guns," said Forester Hemanta Kumar Kandi.

Daspalla police station Inspector-in-charge Biswajit Routray said the forest department has lodged a complaint and investigation is on.

Seven persons including three women were there in the Maoist group, he said.
