Maoist posters, found in naxal-stronghold areas of Orissa's Sundargarh district, were today found in the heart of the steel city.

Police today seized two Maoist posters pasted on the walls of an under-construction private medical college in the premises of Rourkela Government hospital.

Rourkela Superintendent of Police Jitesh Patnaik confirmed seizure of two maoist posters demanding a halt to the ongoing construction work of a high-tech private medical college on government land.

The tribals had earlier given their land for expansion of a government hospital.

The government, instead of building a hi-tech hospital by expanding the existing government hospital, had handed over the land to a private party.

Police was trying to verify whether the posters were put up by the Maoists or the handiwork of some persons who had been evicted from the land.
